I Miss You Today.


I Miss You Today. | elephant journal.

I love this. It is beautiful and captures the way that our hearts never forget. Relationships do not always work out, but they mark us. They leave us memories. Sometimes those are sad and sometimes they are happy. There is this strange expectation in our culture that once a relationship has ended you can’t miss the good things that relationship had. Why is that? People break up and suddenly the other person becomes a villain and there is nothing good about them. I don’t believe there are many villains in this world. Most of us are just trying to do what we feel is right. In most cases, relationships crumble away because of things that both parties have done (or not done). It is rare that there is only one person to blame. Why then, do we have to turn that love into hate? There are relationships that have faded out of my life that I still look back on and remember fondly. Friendships that ended abruptly when our lives took us different directions or a boy’s heart that I broke. But they are not villains, they are people and there are things that I will always remember with fondness. I think that we need to strive to allow ourselves to have pleasure in our memories.

  1. I agree with this. I think it’s ridiculous that one must always spew venom toward the “old flame”. No, I don’t want to go back to the way things were but there is no reason I can’t be civil and behave like a decent human being. Why is this such a difficult concept to grasp?
