My Bubble: Expelling The Painful Clutters

Most of us will do some sort of spring-cleaning to our homes every now and then. Sometimes we are forced into it to de-congest and sometimes we do it willingly. Many a times while we spring-clean, we will find things that we are just unwilling to throw out despite the fact that they are no longer needed or they have become unusable. Perhaps it is because of their sentimental values or the memories they carry.

Sorting out the clutter in our personal life can be equally tough, if not harder and chances are these memories are not necessarily positive ones. They haunt us with all the negative vibes that do not make life any easier for us at all. Getting rid of these old associations can put us in a great place to move on with our life and be surrounded by positive energy.

So why do we still hold on to bad memories? If you could, would you take some pills just to forget parts of your past or do you think that your memories (both good and bad) make you who you are?

The anecdotal pills may sound fast and easy but I think it would not be my choice because bad memories are the ones that make us stronger and in the end we appreciate it more when good things happen to us.

Knowing and advocating what should be does knock some sense into me but yet it is still a struggle each day to expel those painful clutters. I guess I am only human ... the journey continues.
