Hello fabulous people! So, today I’m gonna write on recycling X. I believe I’ve got lots of green readers who like to recycle stuffs into reusable things 😉 Personally I like recycling, I feel it reduces waste not until we actualluybbegin to recycle things we need to get rid of. Don’t worry this isn’t a piece on how to become green or more environmentally conscious, so relax.

Now I discovered that after going through different relationships with people whose names are part of the 26 English alphabets, we have a break up and call them ‘ex'(I’ll replace that with ‘x’ in this piece). After an x, we begin to ask ‘y’. We ask God why it didn’t work out, we ask ourselves why we didn’t do our best, we ask our friends and we even ask the media. People get so stuck in the ‘Y’ phase for a long time, trying to see why the relationship failed, why they did not do better, why their lovers walked away and all the whys there is to ask.

The next alphabet after ‘Y’ is ‘Z’. A computer command of ‘ctrl + Z’ is to undo an earlier done action. God has given us the control Z to undo all the hurts and mistakes we had from our Xs. But most people skip it or sleep through it (Zzzzzzz) and go through the same vicious cycle without learning their lessons. They aimlessly go through Adam, Brad, Cal, Dave (A,B,C,D)…and back to ‘X’.

Stuck in the same cycle, oblivious to the true meaning of love, constantly taking off the band aid, preventing the wound from healing. It rather gets more infections that make us believe love is but a fantasy, a mere figment of the imagination. These infections become contagious. From a wounded heart, we begin to hurt others.

Truth is a hurting heart will always hurt others. Without truly letting our hearts heal and undoing the wrongs we’ve done using the ctrl + Z, we’ll constantly be stuck in that heartbreaking cycle!

Sometimes after a break up, we feel so alone and vulnerable and we turn back to the ones who rejected us. The ones who didn’t deserve our hearts. The ones who wrenched our hearts with their cold hands. We throw it back at them all in search of a little comfort. Yes the angel in them may show up but not long after, the demon in them will use a paper shredder for our hearts.

We are back to singing the sad songs, eating all the ice cream, pudding and chocolate, hating the concept of love or generally hating the opposite sex and trying to satisfy our desire for love and companionship with unspeakable things.

It’s time for a restart! Refresh your page! Let Love in, let Him do His work of total healing and mending in you.  Ctrl Z (undo) all the wrongs the Xs have done, turn on a new page. You don’t have to keep testing the waters to find which is warm enough for you. Take a leap of faith! Believe in Love! Love yourself, love others, free those who have hurt you, let them go…permanently delete (shift + del) from your stored files.Then, you can love on a refreshed page. It’s always my desire for you to live a victorious life! Have an awesome weekend people! 😀
