Do not be so clingy! You must have heard this many times but did you actually give it a try?!
Today I want to address a deeper psychological and an emotional issue that we all have hidden under the surface of our day to day lives. It is a mental act of holding on to things. When I say things or emotions, it includes both happy and sad ones. We look back into our lives and wish to bring back happy moments, and we are insanely desperate to erase our mistakes. However, we know it is impossible to go back in the past or fly forward into the future (until we discover the time machine, just joking). What we have is this present moment, this is the only ‘time’ we can live in. We cannot live in past or future, so all our energy which is wasted in trying to live in these tenses is a complete wastage.
John Lenon said, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans” Be in the present and experience it.
Stop seeking forever in all temporary things. Stop seeking infinity in horizons of time. Bring your attention back to enjoying every moment. As they say, change is the only constant thing. If we let our mind accept all the changes and be ok with it, we will get rid of our major traumas. The source of pain is our never ending search for “Forever” There is no need of forever, forever is too boring, we should accept that things grow and it is a universal truth. It is ok to look different with age, it is ok to let go of old wounds, it is ok to meet new people, it is ok to look different, it is ok to try new things, it is ok to experience things out of your comfort zone.
Change is a natural phenomenon that occurs to everybody and everything around us. So Stop clinging to your past and stop crying over past mistakes and breakups. Learn from them and move on. Every day is like a blank canvas where you can paint your life with colors of your choice. Open up your mind and let your thoughts flow like a river.
