Info

The rain poured down today. And just as quick as the raindrops touched the pavements, your thoughts started drifting off - somewhere beyond this instance.

And then you remember the little things. All the little details which make you felt so sure about yourself. All the memories you've held so dearly, it crushes you. You remembered how all the pieces fit perfectly before... and for a moment, somehow, it shattered.

You'll remember the nights you gazing the stars and whispering sweet promises like everything was perfect. But just at this moment, you realized that the perfects things you thought in life are only temporary. That people come and go. That things changes. And you have to accept the fact that nothing is really permanent. Then all that's left to do is to accept what life has offered you; but you know better to never, ever, settle for anything less than that.

Then you begin thinking about the little possibilities. The little things you thought would change what's been done. All the "what ifs" you always have kept in mind. All the words left unsaid. These things could break you - it could. But remember, these little things made you who you are.

All of a sudden, you'll shudder by the cold wind brought by the storm. Just at this moment, you wake up to the thought that holding on to the things that are gone and the things that broke you is the same thing as "breaking" yourself. 

Instead, you'll remember. You'll keep these memories dearly for it made you who you are but you would never ever let it break you again like it used to. You'll walk with your chin up and face all possibilities, opportunities and even a few mishaps. But at least at this moment, you knew, that what lies ahead is something you will choose for yourself.

Not by your past mistakes.
Not by the thoughts haunting you.
And most especially, not by the people judging you.
