“Go back…go pack!”
They say the only way to get rid of something bouncing off the walls of your mind is if you act on it.So here I am doing justice to this simple phrase.
Tale as old as time people cannot help but break off relationships that may leave you wondering if it was not a particular ‘duet’ who swore they could not live without breathing the same air.
But you can either face the truth or run of and crouch at the opposite side of the ring like a boxer about to be knocked out: Nothing lasts forever.
Probably the only person who owns twitter and does not tweet but stalks certain people would have to be me but hey, I have no shame admitting that. Not to get sidetracked from the main issue.
A few days ago while doing my random checks on my various ‘stalkees’ if that’s even a word, I saw one very glaring hash tag in capital letters claiming a certain someone had no and I quote directly ‘Chill’.
Like the smell of hot pizza calling out to me I delved into this hash tag not wanting to be left out. The last time I ignored trends I had people screaming in blue or white at every picture of a dress they saw online and we all know how that ended.
Looking into a crystal ball would not have prepared me what I saw online. It was the classic example of airing your dirty laundry out in the public and people not putting their money where their mouth was. One party of a recently broken up celebrity couple had ‘shaded ‘the other party and her friends by deliberately ignoring them and choosing another side in a supposed twitter poll.
To say the twitter world was vibrating with excitement over his retweet is an understatement. People were bringing out various theories about how the girl and her friends first called him irrelevant so he was paying them back in their own coin. Others were accusing him of being insensitive about her feelings.
No one can be wholly fine after any sort of relationship breaks. It does not necessarily have to be romantic only as long as you had some kind of connection on a certain level with a person or group of people. Everyone has a way of dealing with a breakup. Some people try to accuse everyone around them but themselves. Some push people away. Some say hurtful words and actions just so people can say mean things to them in return which would fuel their grief.
No one therefore has the right to judge who feels the pain more when a breakup happens especially if we do not know the full story.
It is high time people rebooted their way of thinking and let go of the stereotypes that whoever ends something must be the one enjoying the breakup. We need to go back and go pack on our thoughts before creating assumptions. No matter the intention for the breakup, there is always of something that both parties lose.
Society must REEBOOT their minds and let go of unnecessary stereotypes that put people in boxes and leave situations to run its own course.
Is there anything you think the society needs to reboot their mind about? You can share with me.
Till I finally feel the kick of rebooting…bye darlings!
