Broken Links

To people whom I fell out with.

To people whom I’ve hurt.

To people whom I’ve disappoint.

From the bottom of my heart, I am sorry for being the trigger that caused you to fall out of your alignment of peace and joy. It is my greatest intention for you to return to a state of equanimity whenever you think of me, not because I need you to like me, but because I intend the greatest healing bestowed upon you. It brings great pain to hold an unfavorable memory of me, for I was only a trigger. May you have the wisdom to understand that you have every single power in yourself to remain in your alignment of peace and joy even during the times I was within your presence. You may say you are unhappy about me, but deep down, you were unhappy because I invoked a feeling that made you felt unpleasant.

Do I feel hurt as I look back at what I’ve caused you? You bet. I often look back and wonder what great relationships we could have forged if the trigger went the other way. We could have been great friends, great collaborators, and some of us may even be married to one another, raising beautiful kids by now. What happened? Maybe we were at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Yet, we were at the right place, at the right time because there was a lesson we have to learn.

Yet, looking back, as much as I regret the loss of your connection, I have to accept that I can’t please everyone. I did what I felt it was best for myself back then. Maybe I didn’t think much for you. Maybe I overthink for you. I can’t promise that I will not hurt or disappoint others in future, I can only say that I consciously strive to operate from my values and my virtues everyday.

Hence, to all broken relationships I had in the past –

Please forgive me. I’m sorry. I love you. Thank you.
