Life changes... it hurts sometimes

Another turning point of fork stuck in the road, time grabs you by the wrist and directs you where to go, so make the best of it and don’t ask why, its not a question but a lesson learned in time”

You pass your time doing things you’ve always wanted to do. Sometimes knowing what you are doing and sometimes without having any knowledge of the consequences. I myself was never aware of what I was doing and did what I wanted to. Walking down memory lane, I can still feel the excitement of the jolly talks we used to have. The moments we laughed, screamed, pulled each other’s leg, bullied girls and did things we weren’t supposed to and above all the apprehension of getting caught. Life is dynamic and so are our feelings. I crave to have the time back. But in vain, because it’s all impossible.

Time is invincible and alongwith all other changes it changes us. We experience something new everyday, we learn from each such experience and are never the same again. We are never aware of the change that is taking place in us. Back then, life was just about having fun. I had no fear with anyone. But now, I can now see that reality always hurt. I never wanted to feel sad but being aware of facts that can’t be altered I can do nothing but shed some meaningless tears.

As the saying goes “ Man has to face everything in life, pleasure and pain, he has to lose and gain...”I believe the time has now come for me to bid farewell to my past and embrace the present, no matter how much it hurts.

The sudden departure of my loved ones and little misunderstandings have left a void in my life. But if life was the same everyday, we would obviously get bored of it, so a change is absolutely necessary.
