You see, you leave people, places and things behind. you think you've outgrown the toxicity but a very tiny part of you need something from the past. it needs the old 'you' but you can't do anything about it.
You can move on. you can bloom. you can thrive all by yourself but there would still be something you'll crave for. that something could be from your past that you don't want to face again, just that you miss it and it's completely humane to feel that way.
You sleep one day. you wake up. you find you feel better and healthier than ever. you do your daily chores but in some part of the day, you can feel the things you've left behind running towards you. it's strange, but you do feel it.
The memories travel with you. the tiny arguments are still stuck in your mind. the cuddles are still what you think about. the thought of conversations still wake you till 5 in the morning. you want to feel it if life gives you any other chance.
But then you realise, if you've outgrown something, you need to let it go, completely. you may still feel your past clinging onto you, but then you learn to live with it.
You compromise with your own self. you breathe and go to sleep, again, only to see a healed and a patient morning. you are better than ever. you're falling but then rising with every fall. maybe, that's how powerful the process of growing is.
