Mt. Everest!

Love is easy but relationships are tough and that’s why most fail to see the light of day; they are our modern day Everest’s!

 

In your lifetime you are going to meet people who will claim to hold your hand and walk besides you through good times, the not so good ones and the kind that I pray no one should experience; but instead of holding fort they seem to walked away leaving you to deal with a climb of epic proportions…

 

The reasons behind their absences is a personal choice to say the least and I am no one to judge them, but when we dig deeper it seems to be because they could not deal with situations where they had to put the relationships needs over their own. So their needs were greater than their want to see it through the tough times…

 

Now no one should have to experience such heartache and I have had my share of mountain climbs, so I understand that dealing with the void is like conquering Mt. Everest…

 

The reason I refer it to Everest is because you are battling the memories created and not the actual loss of the person; hence like the actual climb your skills to scale your mountain are only as strong as your mind staying the course… It is a battle of mind over matter and only that will determine your success…

The fear of losing your mind in the white expanse of snow clad canvases is one of the most terrifying feelings one can go through, just like losing yourself in the sea of memories that follow an unpleasant breakup. This is enough to send anyone rolling down the distance of progress you have covered, but let me also tell you that this will happen, it is normal and although you feel that you are back at square 1, this struggle is necessary for you to conquer your Everest; so don’t try scaling it at one go…

 

On your trip to the top you will realise that the damage your partner has done is far lesser than what you are inflicting on yourself by holing on to the past… The ripple effect of their stone skipping your surface will resonate well after their stone makes its way to the bottom of your pond so don’t feel embarrassed that attaining calmness is taking time because it will!

 

The ripples will stop eventually when they start to lose momentum and the realisation of holing on to the past being harmful starts replace that thought… Give it time, it is needed and rushing will not help…

 

As you climb your Everest you will find that your backpack for survival is always there to keep you safe… The ropes that hold you up as support when you can’t do it for yourself, the clothes that keep you warm like a bear hug, the spiked boots that provide you with the support to pull yourself up… These are like the people who truly love you and although they cannot scale your Everest for you they are their to help you survive through it… They might seem like a hindrance at times but trust me when I say this that they have your best interest in mind…

 

You are going to make it to the top! and that is the way of time so remember that the question is not if you will make it but when…

 

All you need to do is inch ahead one step at a time, one day at a time, one step closer to your summit everyday; for everyday is a new day and a new start…

 

You will conquer your Everest, for this is your destiny!!
