Graphs scared the s*** out of me when I had a look at them for the first time in my life. But that didn't last, thanks to a senior who made things easier over a few hundred cups of tea, spanning a meagre 2 short years.
Many years later, I realize how correct he was. I don't know where he is, but I know for sure that wherever he is, he's doing good, real good. He understood something which I'm understanding only now.
He showed me a graph and told me that Life is not about going up and/or down. Life is about moving on. So, whether you're going up or going down is not the big picture. What matters is whether you're drawing the graph or not, that is, whether you're moving on or not. Ups and downs will come and go, you just got to move on.
I'm not trying to inspire you or anything similar. I've got a hell lot to do. Go figure it out yourself. I'm trying to tell you that moving on is important. But, to move on, you've got to travel light. So, get rid of that excess baggage. That can be anything - emotions, friends, used contraceptives...... your call, entirely. Get going, while I go get some sleep. When I wake up, I don't want to see you, because ideally, you should be moving on. Get a life !
