Sometimes we have to let go of the things we’ve treasured and preserved forever. We must cut connections with the goals we chased and the things that kept us up at night for years. These were the things that previously embodied who we were. Not because the softness of the link disappeared into thin air, but rather because you realize that your efforts on their behalf do not result in the respect you deserve.You can feel that there is a lack of understanding or that the universe has treated you unjustly if you are unwilling to admit the need of breaking up relationships and feeling grief. As you enter the gloomy and seek redress, you can’t help but want to go back to the place where you and your dreams are at home.

At the end of the day, one can regret the energy used and wonder whether it would have been wiser to put that energy into something that would have fed and refreshed the spirit. As one realizes their value and climbs the last step of the morning’s objectives, the impulse to defend oneself still exists. In the end, one must accept the circumstances and think that everything occurs for a reason.

Lamenting the tears that have been shed, you try to strengthen yourself during the evening while thinking about them. While looking at their shared ambition, you move on and extend forgiveness to destiny. You then address them and say,

Mujhse pehli si muhabbat mere mehboob na maang.

Beloved, don’t expect the same adoration from me, my love for you has changed, and I can’t promise it will be the same as before. Please don’t expect me to love you as I did in the past; my affection for thee hath altered, and I cannot pledge it shall be akin to ere. Do not anticipate me to cherish thee as erstwhile.
