carpe diem

There always that point where you just get tired of what people do and you just tell yourself that you aren't taking any of it. Then, somehow, you go crazy and start believing that people do change for the better. But it is only when you get disappointed again... that you start to really think about it and hope that you learn so that the cycle does not continue.

In any relationship that has been broken, may it be with parents, close friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, dogs, or whatever you have, there is always a process of detachment so you can go about with your life. A broken relationship is a break in your daily routine and you have to find a way to create a new routine where that relationship isn't included.

For the past three weeks, i have accomplished the art of not giving a damn about what other people do with their lives. I have accomplished the act of knowing who to care about. And somehow, I actually did not feel bad about the whole idea. It's just that some people don't seem to get it. People have this idea that relationships are like toys which you keep in that old chest box. You let it stay there so you can get back to it when you miss it. What people don't realize is that relationships don't involve inanimate objects. They involve things that move and evolve.

Life only lets us move forward. It does not let us travel back in time. And the only thing we can do is move forward with it and hope that we can keep as much as we can as it moves. Seize the day. Make your life extraordinary but do not be stupid.

And when it comes down to it, you realize that you have your people to move forward with.
