Sometimes, someone on the outside can never understand what goes on between two other people. And sometimes only a third person, someone on the outside, can truly comprehend what goes on between two other people, when they themselves are unable to figure it out.
Most of the time, it takes a setback or an emotional upheaval to put things into perspective or to gain a fresh perspective. It is not like you ever get over something that once meant the world to you, it just moves behind other things instead of in front of them. And I think that is one of the most beautiful things in life, that the heart always finds a way.
We strive hard every day to become the best we can be. Out of all those things that we work on, one of them should be to train our brain and our heart to be in sync with each other. Because, among all the battles there are to fight, the one that goes on inside us is the worst. It doesn’t matter who wins, the heart or the mind, eventually it is the person who loses something valuable in this war every damn time.
Well, if only it was that simple! It is most certainly impossible to achieve this insane amount of balance overnight. This is so deeply rooted that half of the times you don’t even realise you are choosing one over the other. But like some things, this can only be learned over time. All we can do is be true to ourselves, and always try to do the right thing. We may or may not achieve this perfect balance, but gradually we will be a better human being. And isn’t this what we all want in the end, to be a good person and at peace with the kind of life we build for ourselves.
