Dwelling on the past.

Everyone wants something.

It could be money, food, power, love or even sex.

We long for what we can’t have, we long for what we have lost, we worry about what may come.

There is no pain greater than the loss of love, except that of what could have been.

It may be a cliché to say, but, it’s not the times that we fall that we regret the most, it’s the times we never took the chance.

We all sit and dwell on the missed opportunities.

We are reminiscent of the memories we have and ponder over the ones never made.

We have to move forward.

If we don’t we are doomed to suffer.

You will never have what your heart desires, what you truly hunger for, if you are always looking backwards into your past.

  1. Really a great post! Loved the truth! Seems as humans though we often know the truth but fail to act accordingly, starting with the story of Adam and Eve?? Ha! Letting go and moving on isn’t always as easy as you would think it should be. Bravo, My Friend, Bravo!!

      Why thank you, I am glad you liked it.
      Letting go and moving on is incredibly hard it is something I still deal with from time to time after 3 years though it’s getting easier.
      Thanks for stopping by.

      1. It is like a message for me today. Because last night was a terrible dwelling on the past night. It was like killing me on the inside.

              That’s great the fight is the hard part, also it can be the fun part if you don’t let it overwhelm you.

      I’m glad you approve.
      When I seen the pictures originally it was the last line that popped into my head.
      I’m guessing that was absolutely nowhere near what you were thinking when drawing it.

      1. I absolutely do! But I really usually have no plot or story in mind when I draw. Its more about shapes and what singular parts jump into my head. Like “hey there’s dead space right here….how about a chunky fellow blowing into this hoop i made for no reason…oh but I dont do faces well..hmm eyeball it is!

          To be fair thats basically how I write.
          Your drawings are awesome and definitely weird as hell.
          This one, like I said, seemed to draw whatever that was I wrote out of me (really have no idea what to call that thing it’s not a story or a poem or a rant so God only knows)
