Past Wounds. (Monday Moments #21)

        It was supposed to be another normal day in his normal life. He got up at 7 am. Left for work by 9 am. He took his usual bus. He got a seat but then he saw her. She was sitting diagonal to him. She looked gorgeous like always. She looked at him but acted like he was a stranger to her. Perhaps he was now. But once, they were more than strangers. So much more than strangers. As he glanced out the window, he couldn’t help but think of those exciting days when they were in love and couldn’t stay away from each other. He remembered their late night phone calls. He remembered how silly they used to act during college lectures. He remembered how they were everything for each other. He remembered how he thought he had found his soul mate. He remembered everything they did. He remembered their nicknames for each other. After all these happy memories, he remembered how she left him to marry a rich guy. He remembered how she forgot about him. He remembered that cruel breakup. He realised how he still didn’t believe in love. She had ruined him. He never trusted anyone after her. He became self-aware about everything he did. BY that time, she got up and stepped out of the bus without giving him as much as a second glance. In that moment, he realised how people can change. Sometimes one moment is enough to change your entire thinking and outlook towards life. Years ago when she left, he was drowning. But now when she left, he had learnt how to swim. At that moment, he was a changed person. In that one moment, he looked forward to his future rather than mourning over his past. Those past wounds were filling up.

(‘Monday Moments’ is a blog series wherein I write about an incident or a moment in a short paragraph. It’s not a story, but just a short description to express and explore the most common joys and also the uncommon miseries.)


  1. Yeah. We all tend to let those wounds build and build. They hurt and it's hard to let go. Thankfully, there is always Jesus- the only one who could ever truly heal our wounds. I am thankful!

  2. Learning how to swim is what makes one stronger, but also letting go of the anger is the path towards truly healing...!

  3. Love this beautiful analogy. It's definitely wonderful to see the Lord at work!

  4. This is so sad but also very cute. It's important nit to give up on love just because of a negative experience, but instead to learn from it and love more passionately ad a result of it

  5. This is really beautiful. It highlights the resilience associated with the human spirit and really emphasizes the power to overcome and be stronger.

  6. Amazing post! You have a great blog:)
