How many of us feel the need to share our past with our partners? How many feel like it’s unnecessary to rewind a story which leads to nowhere but misery? How many of us felt like just taking a fresh start?
Well, there would be many who have concealed parts of their history, in order to avoid unnecessary judgements. To this, many would say that judging people is not “their mantra” in life, but trust me, subconsciously your mind has already categorised and tagged the entire story, which you were never a part of.
This is one of the sole reasons why people tend to hide their past, which according to me is NOT wrong, it’s no where related to trust or transparency, it’s just a matter of mere comfort and compatibility.
Life is understood only backwards, but lived forward. So it’s a matter of acceptance, letting Things go and moving forward.
Behind every person lies a story, and it’s theirs to share, when and how is their way to present, as a partner one should always support and be patient. Our past no matter how bad or good, has taught us a lot in different ways, and made us who we are today.
I don’t know how many resonate with me but let people take their own time to feel comfortable to share their story and connect the dots in their journey which you never were a part of.
Yes, it is unnecessary to rewind a part which brings you misery, but the day you feel your partner deserves to know the real reason why your paths crossed each other’s, the reason why you are, what you are today, you will let them read your whole book, but till then it’s your book and your story to write, you’re the author, so make it right, the way you want and the way you’d like.
