Alas, a decision was made.
I put on my Sunday best and stepped through my front door. I then closed the door behind me. I heaved a heavy sigh. As I turned, I headed straight for the harbour. I took small steps in an attempt to convince myself that it would be a regrettable decision made.
Before long, I found myself at the foot of the steps leading up to the said sail ship. Again, I thought twice about taking that first step up those steps. What if this was a huge mistake? Before doubt could drown me any further, I climbed up the steps and proceeded for the captain’s deck.
My heart was pumping fast. This was it - ‘make or break’. I entered the captain’s deck. I stood frozen. My speech became slow as I attempted every word. At the last word uttered, silence filled the air. I quickly made my way out through the door. There was no turning back. Although no intention of captaining the ship was expressed, I imagined the captain’s reaction would have been one of huge bewilderment as though a mutiny has occurred.
At that moment, thoughts of that unfortunate incident were no longer important. This was the decision made. There was no turning back. Now, only fate could decide on my days to come.
do you ever just meet someone who you think you wouldn’t really get close to but then like a year later they’ve become very close and dear to you and you just kinda think, wow im really glad i met this person i don’t know what i’d do without them
Sometimes love means letting go when you want to hold on tighter.

When you have something to look forward to, you’re more likely to remember happy or positive things from the past, whereas when you are sad, you equally recall positive and negative past events.
Sometimes people close a door because they’re trying to figure out a way to get you to knock.
