It’s been a while since I wrote something, anything. Lately, I have been falling short of words.
With so many deaths in my family, it really made me reflect back on life. Not only has the Covid-19 situation made things worse for everyone but, in this year 2020, we lost a lot of people.
When we lose a loved one, our world stops, we become numb. Suddenly a part of you is no more. You feel empty and no other person can ever fill that gap or place. Each person in our life holds a different place and has special importance. And when they go, we just can’t see anything, we feel angry and alone. It is rightly said,
Grief is just like gravity, it pulls you down
No matter how hard you try to come out of it or stand, it keeps pulling you down. You try to distract your mind but it takes a while to finally move on in life. The people who pass away, leave behind so many memories. It is up to us how we take it and live with those memories.
I thought of writing about it because these few months have been full of ups and downs. Seeing so many of my loved ones go hasn’t been easy. Yes, I have also felt pain, felt hurt, and angry with God at times for taking them away so soon. But, such is life.
When a child is about to be born the doctors give you an expected delivery date and you also know where the delivery will be. But death is such, we have no clue about it, how we will go or when we will go? We don’t know whether we will die young or old, rich or poor?
One thing is common though, whether we are rich or poor, we all will surely go one day and either we will be cremated or buried. After all we human beings are not immortal. Be it any religion, caste, or creed we will die one day.
A huge part of your life goes away in a second!
Still, people tend to get so materialistic and forget amongst the worldly pleasures that one does not take a penny with them. Your clothes, house, money, phones, bags, shoes, jewelry, and anything and everything you love will be left here. Still, people are running after it and showing it off.
You hold grudges against each other. Your EGO is the most important thing for you. I personally know of some people who think so highly of themselves that they have forgotten that they will go too. They have become so blind that they feel money is everything and try to hurt others in all possible ways.
I really want to ask you all, have you ever given a thought about it? Do you value your relationships? Are you giving your family and friends time?
It is never too late to realize one’s mistakes. People forget that whether you believe it or not but – GOD IS WATCHING. God is really writing down all your good and bad deeds. It is time to just stop a little and analyze your life. I strongly believe that if you can’t say anything good about someone don’t even say bad. Just don’t! When you do bad to others it will surely come back to you in some way or the other. Trying to destroy the life of someone you feel ill about or don’t like will not solve your problem.
To everyone out there please watch your actions and reactions as you never know when KARMA will hit you hard in the face and by then it is too late. Try and make peace with people. Stop your bad actions. It is important to pause in life and see if you are doing anything wrong consciously or unconsciously. Death is uncertain. No one knows how it will come or when. Some people really fall ill and suffer while some just go like a blink of an eye. Start making peace with people and find that peace within yourself. You don’t know how much time you have left. You will have no time to regret it! Start valuing the time you have now!
My heart goes out to everyone who lost a loved one. My words cannot express my sadness but, may the comfort of God help you through this difficult time.
