maybe one day in the distant future, when our lives are moving fast and we have no time to remember every time our heart broke or every time we lost faith in ourselves and the people we loved, we’ll meet again.
and it won’t be awkward or rehash old, unresolved feelings.
we’ll be like two new people, meeting for the first time. we’ll have a past, but it won’t hinder our future.
I’d like to move forward with that in mind.
I like to think that two people with a shared past can meet again later on in life and be genuinely alright and happy for each other, as if they’d be happy for any other stranger they’d meet along the way.
they won’t be waiting and hoping for a day that they’d meet again and see how badly the other person is. They won’t be hoping that the other would be hopeless and lost without them.
I’d like to think that life is a little more organic than that. If two people meet again after hard times, difficult times, emotional times, then it’ll be at a time when they will both be okay with themselves, when it won’t hurt anymore and they can just be. Together or apart, it’ll be okay because they’ve moved on and have seen what other lovely things and lessons life has to offer.
