Select All, Delete, Delete all 251 emails.

And just like *that* every single juvenile promise you ever made to me has been consigned to the great recycle-bin in the sky.

I really have no idea why this silly little folder, with impractical html love-letters lingered out in the periphery of my inbox for years. But now that it's gone, I feel curiously liberated. Truth is, I should have done this years ago.

are there practical love letters, x?

Xeb said...

No, there aren't. Love is a highly impractical thing. That's why practical people like me know better than to fall victim to the disease. Haina? :P

heewa said...

it sucks. but its for the best. probably.

Xeb said...

The point is, it doesn't suck! :P

well, er...yes..if you say so xeb.
:-)

but yes, the disease and the cure, i guess. no? or should that be yes?

Xeb said...

yes, no, I don't know. But you don't know either, so taking this discussion further would be the blind leading the blind. Na?

You always feel liberated after things like these... I wonder why the human psychology always ends up tht way...

ha!

:-)

but xeb, it *is* a kind of unknowing, nai?
which is why reading someone else's love letters wound sound silly, why Layla could say, when questioned how she could love someone so dark, hush now, for thou art not majnun!

That's sad! Don't delete emails and texts, if they bother you in the periphery call the poor sob. The fact that you took the time to delete them speaks volumes for how you feel about him.

Catharsis. Now you have your blank slate. Use the lessons of the past to fill it with the ones that matter.

I met someone very special once, in passing - and I was overwhelmed by the need for that person to understand where I came from - and the way to achieve that seemed to be to tell them about all the roads that brought me there. This person turned around and said - Why? I see who you are right now. You are the sum of all that you have been, all that you have been through. None of the details matter.

It had a profound impact on how I saw things, maybe you'll see the wisdom in it too :)

Embrace who you are now and all the exchanges that got you here, and let the rest go.

What are you guys on?

LPS: Humans are funny creatures. That's why studying them is so much fun.

Anon: you have a point there. There is a kind of unknowing.

Ps: This layla is constantly questioning her majnuns, how can you love someone so dark. :P

N: *sigh* :)

A: Actually, it doesn't. But then as a friend said yesterday, I'm a total freak of nature when it comes to maintaining relationships with my ex's. I truly am very comfortable being just friends with them. Not everyone's cup-of-tea, I know, but it works for me.

w: Catharsis is a beautiful thing! :)

m: :)

Anon2: Don't worry. You'll get there. I do that whenever I've very pissed off with someone (anyone). I delete the number to ensure that I'm not tempted to talk to them until such time as I'm over it. It's a good strategy (I think).

Thoth: Dangerous drugs darling, very dangerous drugs. Want some?
