The body – how it responds to chemical reactions is very very weird.
A few days back I mentioned how I bingewatched Dill Mill Gayye on a weekend.
The TV show, in many ways, was an inspiration for the people of my generation.
The cute people, the pure love, the sparks flying at workplace – everything.
Until I spent some time alone for so many years, getting to know the reality.
This morning I was reminded of one instance from the show – where the male protagonist goes on with a friend and feigns as her husband in front of her family, so that her family members stop pressing her for marriage. He does all this without informing the female protagonist, with whom he is deeply in love with.
Today, just by remembering that instance, I was sent into a state of feeling like crying, as to how this could happen.
Of course, a lot of this relates to the past mistakes I made.
Which brings me to the question – do we really forgive people or does our body remember everything?
If the body remembers it, it is up to the mind to practice focussed forgiveness – for a long, long period of time. Even when it is not asked for. Not for the other person. So that we go beyond our limitations that didn’t even exist.
Don’t we owe this to ourselves?
