Moving into the Future

By , September 13, 2003

Blogging is a funny thing. You post your thoughts, ideas, and sometimes even personal feelings, and bare your soul to the world. Strangers surf in at random, and in some small way they become a part of your life.

Realistically, none of us knows much about any of the people whose journals we read regularly, though we learn little details here and there, and in some ways bond with one another.

Many people use their blog as an outlet for heartbreak. I am currently blessed with a wonderful relationship, one that I feel confident will last a lifetime, but I can still relate, and even empathize, with the sorrow of others. It’s an awful feeling when someone you care about is gone. I’ve never been through a bad break-up, but I have had my share of heartbreaks, not to mention heavy crushes that didn’t pan out. It can take a long time for the pain to subside, and some of it never really goes away; rather, it becomes a part of who you are. You take it with you, and learn from it, and in time you’re a more complete person with a much better idea of who you really are, and what you really want. With luck, one day you find the right person, and suddenly it was all worthwhile.

So if you’re in the middle of something new and difficult, it may be the end of the familiar, but it’s also the beginning of something unknown. The past is comforting, but it’s the future we live to see. Just don’t be afraid to cry in the meantime.

Today’s Question: Who or what last made you cry?

I last cried when my father passed away. I no longer cry, though I miss him no less than before.

    Me, I made myself cry. The most difficult thing is trying to unlearn/unfeel what one has already known and felt; cutting off one’s senses.

    by unlearn i do not mean to forget or to avoid, but you need to leave certain things behind so you can continue to grow. (again, maybe it’s me and my twisted logic)

    My first love. We had been friends forever, and after dating for awhile, he said he couldn’t ruin our friendship. Apparently he was my first love, but I was not his.

    Wow Peasprout, this entry hit the spot. You know what I’m going through these days! MY soon to be ex-husband made me cry last. I’m probably not through either, but like you said, it’s the end of something familiar… I’m really looking forward to what’s to come. Thanks for posting this.

    I cried last night while watching “I’m bout it” with Master P. That film is so violent and full of death and sadness. It makes me so emotional to think about how hard people try to be happy and don’t just enjoy life in the moment. If we are constantly working toward what is going to bring us a better life or give us happiness then we will never be a better person or know true happiness. Happiness is being utterly content in the moments of sadness, discomfort and joy because it is all experience that makes us who we are today. Love yourself!
