Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then, you miss your whole life, which is never not now. And that’s a revelation for some people: to realize that your life is only ever now.
It’s weird when you think about someone who hurt you some time ago. It’s weirder when it doesn’t hurt you the same. You moved on, you probably don’t know exactly how or when. Maybe someone new filled the space where they once were, or maybe you’ve made bigger mistakes, either way, they don’t hurt you anymore. You’ve grown and so has the past. Just like the thing you once thought you would never let go, the thing you once thought could not recover from, has gone. Slipped out of your life without even a thought. How beautiful. Life has a funny way of solving pain like that. We’re not sure how, when or why, we must learn to accept that time will heal us. Then, we can finally let it.
