Revisiting the past is sometimes a thing people would rather shy away from. Some feel as if it shows regression instead of progression. Others feel as if it’s meant to be since it is. I tend to agree more with the latter, but I still feel it’s somehow connected to acceptance. At least for me.
Sometimes people go separate ways because it’s just time to move on. Other times it may have been something to cause a shift in the relationship. I’ve dealt with both and either situation doesn’t change the fact that something that used to be is no longer.
I don’t mind revisiting the past simply because in doing so, you face the issues and have a chance to reconnect a broken connection. Even if it doesn’t completely heal it’s still better than broken. From time to time, you may be reminded through a little pain but it’s still not as bad as when it first happened.
We all grow, whether weaker or stronger the result is always the same. For those who endure pain and push on, they are rewarded with an inner strength as well as peace. A peace that can only be found from being the best that they can be. Even if it’s not what it used to be, it’s still better than broken.
