The things we leave behind—–buildings, people, experiences—rarely disappear altogether. When we look back, we find ruins, remnants, echoes. A run down building, a mannerism you’ve inherited from a person no longer in your life.
Let’s you and I try something different. This blog is confidential and allows you to send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org where you can discuss something you left behind. What is your existence without it? What is its existence like without you? What does revisiting it make you feel? What does the future hold for it? Will you ever look back again?
This does not have to be negative, or one focused on a painful loss. It is something you look upon with curiosity, wonder, and nostalgia, not regret. It can be, if you like, but you can just as easily take your inspiration from a bad habit you’re thrilled you’ve left behind, the home you once lived in and remember fondly, or the third-grade teacher who had a huge impact on you but is no longer in your life.
Take a moment to pause and look back, and share what you find. I will compile the information for a later ‘blog’ all information will be held in the strictest of confidence and no names will appear.
Be a participate it will make you feel better.
