Distance

No matter what you do or how you change, your Past never really leaves you. It does not matter whether you have moved on in your Life or you hangout with your friends frequently or you have a couple of Hobby ideas. What matters is how you live your Life accepting the past you have thrown away.

The distance between the current You and the past You remains the same and it does not depend on how you have grown over the years. The present You might have changed, but you cannot deny your past. You have to live with it until you wash your memories away… Poof! All gone!

I lived my present life a couple of years trying to wash away memories of my dark past. I did not want to be the old me, I wanted to be the newer, better version of myself. Isn’t that what everyone wants for themselves?

Alas! But today I realized that, no matter how far I run the race, no matter how high I jump, my shadow will always follow me; silent, calm, unnoticed- Waiting for a chance to spring back upon me with its darkness. And for this realization, I thank my friend.

All the memories which I had kept hidden, locked away in the darkest corners of my mind. played-back smoothly like a film. At times like these, I keep myself aloof from the others, quiet; lost in my own thoughts. How else am I going to regain my composure?

It was a good learning though – The farther you go, the more closer it gets.

    Very nice post. I love the quote “the farther you go, the more close you get.” Our past is a part of us, so we need to embrace it. Thanks for sharing!
