Same pinch

What do you do when you find yourself in the same situation again? Would you make the same mistakes or would you be wiser this time? Would you not be impulsive and jump to conclusions? Would you take your time, be patient and wait for the right time to say the right thing or ruin everything by being anxious and stupid? Would you keep your cool and not become obsessive?

Most importantly, would you remember that all the drama that you would create would finally go down the drain?

You have already learnt, already burnt your fingers. You know what to do, there is no need to re-learn them in a painful way.

Don't run to it, walk swiftly, walk surely and enjoy the view while you inch towards your destination.

Being wise

Are you wise now? That's not a rhetorical question, but the answer is not a simple yes.

Yes, I take my decisions measured at every teaspoon. Yes, I do not trust people easily. Yes, I have learnt to let broken relations be. Yes, now I remain calm when I am hurt. Yes, I can see nothing is permanent. And, yes, nothing really matters after all.

Is that being wise?

If that is wise, what happens to vulnerability, spontaneity and of course, life itself?
