And if all else fails, what shall remain? Or rather, who will remain?
Have you ever wondered that when you reach your weakest and most vulnerable point, who is by your side? Who sticks to you high and lows, for richer and for poorer? This may sound cliche but aren't we all finding someone who will stay by our side even though we have nothing to give? May it be a romantic or a plain friendship. We are all finding a person who will cry for us when tears fail to run out of our eyes. To find someone who will get angry when all the hatred inside us suddenly perishes. Yearning to find that person, we set out for a journey. A journey that's supposed to make us find a home. A home that makes you feel like you belong, that you are at peace. Because, when things go south, who do you run to? We all need a person who will stay by our side. And if we are lucky, then maybe, just maybe, along this journey, we will find a person who we can run to when the universe failed us.
If all else fails, who will remain?
A question that has been bugging everyone, including me, whenever we reach the peak of our lives. Because, don't we ever want to know or get to know a person who will be our anchor? The one who will keep us sane despite all difficulties. The one who will help us determine all the underlying factors behind our actions. And maybe, the one who will forever understand us despite our facades. The most ever understanding person that'll not be disappointed even if we show them our obscure sides. Not all people are perfect, we make mistakes, we say things that we wish we haven't. We all do things when something is too much for us to bear. And we do that not because we want to but because we have no choice. We are sometimes blinded with anger. Thus, It's just a matter whether the person beside us decides to stay even if shown the painful reality we are always trying to hide.
Reality has been so cruel to several of us. We are all trying and having a tough time to hold on and survive. In a world where giving up is easier, look at your surroundings. Ask yourself, if all I disappear, what will remain? And, if you aren't able to answer the question, then maybe it's not yet the time to give up. Maybe, the universe is trying to give you a hint that you should try again one more time. And this time, try again with someone. Someone who will never abandon you. Who will cry for you. Who will clap and celebrate with you. And, the most important is, find someone who you want to share your whole self with. Find your person.
In a world full of temporary, find your constant.
Again, ask yourself, if all else fails, who will remain? When you have finally answered the question, then you already found your person. Never let go.
