Many of us are bothered by small things. Well, sometimes they are important but most of the times we get too serious about trivial matters and make a big deal out of it. We forgot to be kind and compassionate.
I missed the morning train… Someone cut my queue… My boss scolded me… I received a parking fine… The cashier was so slow… That person was so rude… blah blah blah…
Is it really that important? You may not even remember all these matters after 3 days, so why spoil your beautiful day with it? Just let it go. So next time when you are getting annoyed, ask yourself this question, “Will this matter a year from now?”
Sometimes, the depression is a healthy emotion. It is telling us to give up the old way of thinking and behaviour, or simply let go of something that does not belong to us.
Just like the physical pain is important to prevent our body to get injured; the depression is an emotional pain to prevent our heart getting (more) hurt. It may take forever to learn to let go, but at least we are trying and believing everything will be fine one day.
And of course, don’t get too depressed!
Since I embarked on my journey abroad, I haven’t seen some people in my life for a long time. No matter how close we were in the past, each of us got to move on with our own life. This is called, life.
We may never see each other again. Or maybe one day our paths will cross again. Who knows? Yet, I hope everything is going well for whoever I have met and valued in my life. Because it’s what makes me becomes who I am now.
Please shine, even if we may not meet each other again.
