How do you know how much is too much? Too much to bear, too much to contain. How do you know when it is the right time to let go, let pieces of you fall apart.
There is never enough time in our lives to sit back and tackle issues individually. This holds true to both petty and the bigger, more impacting ones. We, or in good probability most of us, are running away from the truth all the time. We need to come across as strong individuals to people around us who may be are more screwed than us. This is how we deal with our pride. Issues, people and their feelings become impertinent to us and pride takes over. We have been taught to look at the brighter side of life, you know.
At a certain point however, the baggage becomes too heavy to carry. Your shoulders stoop under the weight of the invisible and everything is grey and pensive. What do you do then? Do you continue to turn a blind eye? Act like you are still the blithe spirited one on a cozy rose bed?
Or do you just stop running away? Stand still, breathe, and let that heavy, dense, soggy blob of pain sink into you. Let your frame of mind crush you. Put things into perspective. Subject self to rational thinking.
Face. Accept. Isn’t that the most difficult thing to do? Eventually, you’ll pick up your pieces and pull yourself together. You’ll learn. Evolve. Rise. Mature. If not anything, you’ll feel light enough to smile guilt free.
But again, how do you know when? How do you know how much is too much?
