When they say you must cry intensely and everything at once, actively free yourself from all that grief but then promise you’ll never shed another tear for that same person, permanently erase what gave you life hoping you’ll not die alongside with it. It’s funny when we even think of the possibility of actively engaging in forgetfulness. Letting go is everything but a consciously executed move. “Letting go” is letting go, the words are truthful in this one time, not misleading for a change.
Well, saying this morning you woke up feeling wiser and cold, that’s a beautiful thing to hear, it looks nice when you quote it on a Facebook post, so inspirational and uplifting.
But stop fooling yourself. You’ll cry now and again, and another time after that. It won’t stop until you understand that your tears are only yours. No one’s watching nor pitying you. And the one who caused them is usually the least worried about it. You are sad, she is happy. You are frozen, she is living. You are perishing, she doesn’t care.
Crying cures nothing, it drowns you instead.
Crying releases the body by numbing the soul.
Crying is the way your heart finds to say that you must leave it all behind.
Imagine you’re happy even when you’re broken.
Pretend you’re strong even when you’re falling apart.
Smile and smile again until you inadvertently step into genuine bliss.
Do not allow your memories to drink from your tears for their thirst is thriving and never-ending.
