Nano Fiction 12 : Moving On
First of all, this is my 260th blogpost. I am so glad to have touched this milestone. I never had any idea when I started blogging, that I would reach here with more than 1.5 lakh pageviews! I feel so happy to be doing what I do.
Today I will talk about 'moving on'. This means different to different people. For some it can mean that after you end a relationship, give yourself some time, and then move over back to any of your old 'ex' or some new person. Or for some it can mean - try as much to save a relation, if it doesn't work, accept that you do not have a forever with some people and things are not going to change, then you try to stay happy in the happiness of the person you loved and decide to give your entire life for that person, because you know you can never emotionally invest the same with anybody else ahead.
Basically, everyone is different and everyone copes with different things in different ways.
For the people belonging to the first category, it may be a regular routine to get over somebody and 'move on'. But the second category, abides by all the promises they made during the relationship and stick to the fact that - "I have no future with anyone except that one person who is now gone. And it's okay. I can live alone." What breaks these people who dwell on relationships for long is when the person for whom they are ready to sacrifice is the fastest to move on.
The first category of people move on for different reasons - they cannot handle loneliness and want to fill that space ASAP or they are too weak and want a shoulder to cry on or maybe even for their physical needs or parental pressure. Some people can be cold and heartless. Such kind of people never really invested emotionally in you. Often these kind of people do not want to wallow to the pain and sulk, hence rebound, and options are easily available in a digital world like ours nowadays.
The speed in which a man moves from a breakup to a new amorous attachment is directly proportional to the pain he's feeling -- the deeper the hurt, the quicker the hook up. So if you see your ex in the arms of another within days of your breakup, remember 'IT'S STILL OKAY, though not justified. It is his/her way of coping with it - however cheap a way to mend the broken heart.' With that understanding in place, it is perfectly reasonable to go home and cut his/her head out of all the photos of him/her you own, and incinerate them in your barbecue. *winks*
Here's the 12th Nano Fiction. Happy reading.
