What a luxury it was…!

People who’ve lost someone know, the pain it causes to hold someone for the one last time and then never again… how life changes in a blink and we stand there not knowing what to do next. We all know it in our hearts that people will one day leave, either way, we don’t choose to think of it often. Me being an overthinker, always tend to wonder over these thoughts. What will I do when a close one passes away, what will I do if I never get to hold them for the one last time and tell them how much I’ve loved them and how much I’ll always care and crave for their presence. It’s sad you know, we imagine so much about the future that we forget to live and love in our present. It’s sad when your picture gallery is just filled with screenshots of positive thoughts and your pictures instead of you and your family members. It’s sad to watch you commenting on your friends’ Instagram profiles and not once see you praising them in person. It’s a self-evident truth. We all are guilty of this. I have never felt the pain to lose someone so it scares me, even more, when it will happen in reality. Recently, the fear of not having someone touched me and went away, but even the touch of it changed my life upside down. Not that I cared less before, but now I care a little too much. I pray to God daily now, is it selfish of me? I don’t really know, I only know I gotta ask God at least once to keep everyone safe. I have realized one thing very closely now and I know I will always remember it, we might be having the best times in our life or having a fest around us, but we never know what the future holds for us. It’s so so so important, to be honest with ourselves and with others. How it’s so important to do what your heart wants and not keep it waiting. To tell your crush you like them, tell your teacher you respect them, to sing with your grand-mom every morning, to head massage your brother, to give your last piece of chocolate to your sister, to hang out with friends, to shower your dog with kisses…. but most importantly to tell your parents you love them and are lucky to have them. You don’t have to be afraid of what the future holds for you instead you ought to live your present with so much joy that even when your time comes, you have no regrets. It takes time to heal but once you do no one can stop you from loving and living every moment.
