I think it’s important to realize you can miss something, but not want it back. – Paulo Coelho
There are different things in life that make us miss them, but you would still not want that same thing back in your life. This is not just applicable in case of materialistic things, but it goes likewise for people as well.
There are times when we miss certain people and certain memories in our life, but we still do not want them back in our lives all over again. We usually miss things or people with which/whom we have got some or the other memories attached with!
However, that does not mean that we would want to get them back in our life all over again.
It is essential to realize that we can miss certain things, but at the same time, we would still not want them back only because of the fact that they add miseries in our lives.
Maybe, their presence is not at all preferred to us, or it could be because of the fact that having them in our life would bring unnecessary troubles to us.
In order to ensure that we continue to leave peacefully, one needs to take certain decisions with the brain instead of using the heart.
There are several situations when we might become emotional, but we need to understand how the reality works, and thus, may have to take several decisions wisely instead of allowing the heart to act therein.
You ought to realize that not everything is going to happen according to our wishes. There will be several situations and circumstances in front of us when we might have to keep our hearts aside and, thus, do things that are going to yield us in the long run.
At times, you cannot think emotionally only because your brain will help you see through the consequences that you might have to encounter later on, and thus, you will have to do things that are going to win.
Realize that no matter how much you miss such things or people, it is better to stay away from them, and thus, you do not require to invite them back again, for they will do no good to you. So, just let them go!
