Life...could be so harsh when it is filled with so much injuries, leaving behind the deep wounds and ugly scars. The wounds which vary to a certain degree might be able to heal but the scars are a dreadful sight, bringing back the pain and turmoil to the mind.
The common adage "Life has to go on" is somehow an aspiration to cling on and grasp the hope for a better tomorrow. By right, one cannot be deprived of one's right to enjoy the splendour of life but nothing is always smooth running. Ironically, while journeying through life, a tinge of the past is lurking somewhere rearing its ugly head waiting to pound off guard. Let's not be easily defeated by it. As much as we hate it, we still have to sail through the rough sea of life before landing in a promising destination of where everything is good.
Let off the steam, whatever that cannot be held on much longer; the agony, the sorrow, the fury... but let it be within bounds. The resentment should not build up like a dormant volcano, once erupted brings massive destruction beyond repair.
In every creation, there is the opposite. Adam was created for Eve, day is followed by night, where there is rain, there is shine....the bottom line is, with positive insight, the worse could become better.
A gentle reminder, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Go for it, sooner or later, you will reach it. It is only a matter of time.
PS What I wrote came to my mind for a friend, a sister, whose pain I empathize.
