Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 107’s Topic: Baggage.
I can admit I have a lot of baggage (of the emotional variety, no less) that weighs me down each day. It makes me wish I could wake up one morning and magically pretend none of that baggage existed. Actually, it would be quite nice if I could forget about the baggage completely and move on with my life.
And yet, I am always reminded that there are some things I haven’t quite let go, for better or worse. It feels like I have a million loose ends I need to take care of, but I feel like I don’t know where to begin.
It also begs the question, “Is it even worth addressing?”
For certain loose ends, sure. I want to get them resolved. At the same time, I don’t know if the effort is even worthwhile. I don’t know if I can afford to divert my energy toward things essentially left behind in my past.
Regardless, I feel the weight each day. I try to act like it’s not there, I try to go about without worrying too hard about it all and then the emotional toll starts to feel extremely heavy after a while.
There is only so much a person can take. I am only human, after all. I am not immune to emotions. In fact, I am just as vulnerable to them as anyone else.
I just think I do a bad job of ignoring stuff I shouldn’t let be the focus of my day.
Sometimes, I wish I could just leave all the baggage behind. But will I ever be able to?
