All is well that ends well. We all love happy endings. In fact, we all want happy endings with everything and everyone. So do we get it?
I find the concept of “happy endings” pretty funny. For I don’t think that they are possible. Like literally! Come, think about it. If you really enjoy something or your time with someone, you would keep going back to it again and again and again, till you are completely restrained not to. That is when it ends. Or you let it end. At that time, what you feel is anything but happy.
On the other hand, if you hate something from the bottom of your heart and then it comes to a halt, then you are relieved. But seriously, do you feel happy looking back at the entire ordeal. You are just grateful that it got over.
I think that the journey is more important than the end. In fact, way, way more important. Sometimes, the best journeys with the best people don’t end well. But they give us some great memories to live by in our not-so-good times. No one we love is going to stay with us forever. Something or the other will take them away and they won’t come back. When that something is death, there is a concrete finality to our time with them. That is the end of “us.” We cry, we wail, we hate it. But after sometime has passed, it is the journey that we swear by not the end.
Endings are not happy. So stop focusing on them. Look at the big picture. Look at the journey. Aim for a happy journey!
