Hensel once said to Gretel,
"Let us drop this breadcrumbs so that together we find our way home."
Because losing your way would be the most cruelest things. Losing your way in a journey is unfortunate, but losing your reason for the journey is a fate more cruel.
I went on a journey not too long ago. The journey lasted 18 months. Sometimes I travelled alone, sometimes there are others who took the wheel, and took my heart, but when the destination was reached it wasn't me who'd arrived. Wasn't me at all.
You see, once you lose yourself you have 2 choices: Find the person you used to be or lose that person completely because sometimes you have to step outside of the person you've been and remember the person you're meant to be. The person you wanted to be. The person you are.
George Bernard Shaw once wrote,
"There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire, the other is to gain it." Clearly he had his heart broken once or twice.
In a way, Shaw was right. As we strained to grasp the things we desire, the things we think will make our lives better, money..popularity..fame, we ignored what truly matters. The simple things like friendship..family..love. The things we probably already had.
But as far as I'm concerned, Shaw was a punk. Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do? Give up? Quit? NO. I realize now that when your heart breaks you got to fight like hell to make sure you're still alive. Coz you are. And that pain you feel...that's life. The confusion and fear...that's there to remind you that somewhere out there there's something better and that something is worth fighting for.
Yes, losing your heart's desire is tragic but gaining your heart's desire.. it's all you can hope for. Last year I wished for happiness and a friendship i can hold on to for life. My wish was granted and if having that is tragic then give me tragedy because I wouldn't give it back for the world.
