Don’t you remember when you were six years old you had a friend? Her name was Molly. She stole your lolly pops and pulled your hair.
And you over there.
– Who ? Me ?
Yes. You. Do you remember the boy that treated you like a toy two years ago? The one that you wish you never trusted?
And sir. Exucse me.
– Yes ?
Do you remember all those years, and all the pain and tears, and your fathers hand that coused it?
We all have at least one person in our lives that we wish we would never have encountered. A person that creeps into our minds like an ant. Its so small yet causes the most enormous discomfort and in some cases pain in our confused minds.
It’s a person that will never disappear, not completely.
And it’s okay.
But do you remember the girl, Annie was her name. She helped you tie your shoe on the school trip you were so afraid of.
And you, do you remember the girl who was always there, always by your side. When you were falling apart it was her who picked you up. Remember that?
And you sir. Do you remember your brother fighted for you? When you weren’t able to stand the pain no longer, he took the beatings. He was the one that ended up in the hospital. When it should’ve been you.
You see we also have that one person who did something good for us. Helped us when we needed it. And maybe we don’t know that person anymore. However, it doesn’t erase their good deeds.
But why is it easier for us to forget the good and remember the ugly?
Don’t you think it’s time for a change?
A time that we remember the good and forget the ugly?
A time for us to get rid of the last horrible memories. The ones that bring pain and hide laughter. The ones destract us from the people who are there for us when we need it and when we don’t.
Think about the person who you can talk to about anything. And if you don’t have a person like that think about the person who is the closest to you. Who you cherish everytime you see. It can be you doughter, father, that one costumer who always has something to say or you neighbour who brought you soup after your car crash.
Think about the person who makes you laugh. Who even when totally annoying is able to make your day from horrible to amazing. Who will give you food .. Or a chair when you need it most.
And don’t think about the people you don’t have. Maybe it’s harsh but deal with it. It’s not the end of the world if they don’t want to be in your life, then it’s their loss. Not yours. Beacause you my dear friends deserve better. And if you are dreaming about a particular person, maybe they exist and maybe one day they’ll walk onto your path, but what’s the point to get upset about someone who you do not know? Its pointless.
You deserve that person that you spend most of your life with. Or that you met three days in a coffee shop but you feel like your soul mates. Or the one you work with that always no matter what will give you a hand.
So the next time you are thinking of something sad, especially if it’s something triggered by that thought about the demons, throw it out of your brain immiediately.
And think about your angels.
