I somewhere heard a beautiful thought about the eternal question we keep asking ourselves “Why Me?” … The law of karma it explained is like a frisbee. whatever you throw would come back to you, only catch is, the time between your throw and it coming back, could vary from moments to ages to births. Therefore when it comes back, you might not remember why it has come back to you. And the feeling of being victimised sets in, you start blaming others for treating you in certain way. What we probably need to remind ourselves is that even if we don’t remember , whatever good or bad is coming our way is because of the frisbees we sent sometime in the past. Letting go becomes easy if we understand this.
And what to do about it? For now on ensure the frisbees we send are all good. Good karma.
Ofcourse its much easier said than done. Someone purposefully being mean to you, hurting you, and you putting a brave face ; its difficult. But no harm trying .. right ?
Holding onto the feelings comes naturally to us.Letting go has never been easy, but sometimes it is the only option. But as much important letting go is, it is also important to put a full stop to lot of sentences we leave open in our lives. A lot many times, we think we have let it go, while all we have done is ran away from it. We don’t put closure to instances, relationships, incidences, failures etc etc.
Some life changing instances damage us bigtime, a part of us dies and since we don’t put closure to it, a part of us remains there , at that very instance, in that particular relationship, in that incidence, amidst that failure. Let that pain be there for sometime, let that hurt linger some more time, till you can overcome it and finally let it go.
Abrupt changes are never good, neither in fiction nor in life. Embrace the pain to free yourself from it.
