Past & Future - What Else?

by Dany Bachir (writer), , November 06, 2007

We have all gone through tough times. But we have also had our many laughs and good times. I have seen my nephews being born and raised to be great men of the future. But I have also seen people leaving me. Walking at a distance while turning their backs at me. Some of them cared but others didn’t. I only wonder if they ever did.

You know what? I don’t blame them. They probably didn’t know me enough. Or wait a minute. Maybe it was my fault. Maybe I didn’t introduce myself well enough. Yes. I tend to be kind hearted sometimes and always claim responsibility for the mistakes of others.

Anyway. It just happens! We were all born to live through such situations. The more you experience them, the more tough you become. But being tough is tough. People around you have to live with it. If some of you out there are living with it, please excuse me. It was never my intention to be an unpleasant company.

Let us all get over our bad past. Let us just assume that the past is a foreign country. Where things are done differently. I have left that country and landed on a new one. A country called “Future”. A country where new things are going to happen. Whether good or bad, we just know that things are going to happen. Years later, we will decide whether we should stay or leave to another country.

I’m not trying to be pessimistic, but I truly think that will be visiting every country of the world.

Don’t escape from your bad moments. They will follow you. They will stalk you. They will hit wherever you go. Any time of the day. It will come. So try to laugh about it. It will come smoother. Sometimes sweet. Expect it and it will sound nicer.

On the other end, try to act surprised when good things happen to you. Even when you’re expecting it. It will look nicer. A great surprise! What a beautiful sentence that is!

My dear OtherEnders,

Driving your future while trying to control your past is a tough ride. Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.

What is it you would let go of today?

Try to do this exercise. It really helps.

I will end this with another contradictory argument and let you make the judging.

Why should we look to the past in order to prepare for the future?

Because there is nowhere else to look.
