A year and couple of months ago, this quote was all over my facebook page. Back then, I thought that I really understood what it meant and what it was all about. I posted it with certain people in my mind showing them that YES! I'm over you and yes, I'm done running after you asking you to re-live our memories. I admit I'm known for being an attention freak and maybe I tend to always be the centre of attention BUT I know that I've never asked for something I didn't provide the other person with. Don't get me wrong, I understand the whole concept of giving without expecting anything from others. But they were not the "others". They were 'the people' in my life.
Couple of days ago, I re-posted this quote. No, not because I'm such a big fan of this post but rather because I think I finally got to the point where I don't want to run after them. It is clear to me now that we are not on the same page, not even in the same book. I'm not going to deny how frustrated this leaves me but I know, I know very well, that it's not worth the effort anymore. Our relationship is not worth me getting devastated over false expectations and faded memories.
I know this note might not get to the people I'm letting go off because it wouldn't really catch their attention if I write a post or win the Pulitzer award! But for those people who are still by my side despite the distances, differences and the headaches I give them everyday: thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are the reason why I choose to be better person, a person who lives her passions and seeks the best in herself.Although I still love and cherish every single memory I lived with them and until this day I get so thrilled if I ever see their number brightening my phone screen, I hope and I pray that I don't have to go through this again. Nevertheless, I'll always see the good in people because there are people who see the good in me, granting me the opportunity of being a better person everyday.
