It is funny how realisation dawns on you. The time the location the moment so unexpected. Yet it is that moment you have waited and dreaded for. Both at the same time.
If only you had known the truth with such clarity a tad bit earlier, some of the stupid things you did could have been avoided. Or the hurt you felt could have been dealt without that tub of ice cream. The uncertainty and anguish could have been banished.
Of course that isn’t to be. Life is cruel. It remains such with so much ease that you wonder how did she find such expertise. By practice I say. No matter how smart I think I am, or prepared I feel I am, life throws me another experience that I didn’t know how to experience.
So I go ahead. Be me. Experience. Hurt. Fall. Get up. Smile. I have just lived life all over again.
