Speaking on the behalf of most of the people in the world, “Unsaid byes are the worst ones.”
When we know a person and spend so much time with him, we get used to his company and the person becomes our habit. Friends, people may call them, become a part of our lives and they penetrate so much into our actions that we can’t think of life without them. Imagine I am your best friend. You have spent your whole life trusting me, sharing the weirdest of secrets with me and there comes a moment when I can’t be seen anywhere. How will you feel? What changes will it bring if I were not around?
If I were to answer that question, I wouldn’t have been able to answer at all. Everything in the world becomes smoke when you see the world without your favourite person in it. I don’t want to convey the message that people shouldn’t leave their lives because that can’t happen. Sooner or later, people have to leave, it is inevitable. Some people leave us with a goodbye and there lies the hypocrisy, it isn’t a goodbye, still is termed as ‘goodbye.’ We are not ready to let people go; I think we will never be. Sooner or later, our favourite person becomes our worst memory and we can’t do anything about that. We rewind the moment when the person left us and repeat us again and again in our brain. Many of you would have faced this situation. We are all humans, we are all meant to feel this way. If we don’t, how else are we supposed to be humans? How else would we be sure that there is a heart beating in our body? How else are we supposed to know that we are alive?
The fact we have to understand the hard way is that people can’t be replaced. Byes can hurt but trust me, no byes hurt more. When someone leaves you without a bye, it makes you think that there was a fault in you. It makes you mentally sick and you question your own existence. People try to fill the void but they can never. What’s gone is gone forever. We, the people, try to move on but we never. We, the Sapiens, try to be happy but we can’t be. We, the humans, try to forget but we can never.
When people leave with a goodbye, we know there was a reason and we got to wave hands one last time. The same is with dead people; we know that they will never come back. People leaving for no obvious reasons and with no byes are worst. I can’t understand what comfort it brings them. We are not sure if they are going to come back or not. The thought of them coming back keeps us burning alive and we can’t do anything about that. Thoughts are dangerous drugs. Their intoxication can ruin our lives. They absorb quickly in our system and don’t go out easily. Soon, everything becomes messed up and we can’t make it perfect again.
Ghosts (people leaving without goodbye) are a malignant tumour and they spread everywhere and ruin our pretty little lives. What we need to do is surround ourselves with people who would never turn their back on us even in the hardest of times and walk with us even through the gates of hell, if needed.
