YESTERDAY IS HEAVY. PUT IT DOWN. - Rose Gold Clasp Bangle
My best friend went out with a guy once. He had a history of being a “lad” as we say which is just kind of a polite way of saying he was a charming cheater.
He talked about all the bad experiences he had with past girlfriends where he was the victim. And that made him “scared of commitment” and “unable to stay in a relationship”. Yeah, whatever.
We used to joke he had so much baggage that he needed a truck to move it around. But I don't believe he really had baggage - he was using yesterday as a convenient excuse to be a jerk. A cute jerk, but still a jerk.
And he was soon history, moving his Mac Truck to another stop.
If you are really carrying yesterday, a truck would be a welcome help. Because real baggage likes to physically attach itself to you so you don't forget it. It likes to be there so it can jump into any decision you might make, whisper in your ear and warn you of all impending dangers. It settles in your gut and pretends to be instinct rather than fear. It tells you that you are doomed to repeat your past and the next disappointment and pain is just around the corner.
Do you ever get rid of it? Probably not. It's ingrained in us to reflect on our past and use our experience to make decisions in our future. Often people who drink a lot or take drugs are trying to drown out the voices of yesterday and alt+ctrl+delete the pictures from their past. But the voices and pictures get louder and it takes more and more energy to block them.
Consider that maybe one day, you choose peace.
You accept the past is part of who you are and you have the choice for your future.
You learn to put the burden down.
Learn to say “enough” when it whispers in your ear.
It takes lots of practice, it might take therapy, it often takes love, but you park yesterday.
Unload the things you need and leave the rest in the truck.
You have to decide to do it. It’s a long road.
And perhaps this bangle might be a good daily reminder.
Yesterday is Heavy. Put it Down.
