Life! Such a fascinating gift! So many people, so many emotions, so much happening in a lifetime. Have you ever wondered that if each one of us were to pen down our life adventures what a fascinating story it would make, wouldn’t it?
A good story is further enhanced by good editing.
However editing a finished story is a tedious process. Editing it as you write it makes. Whether it is a story, or your life.
We all reach a point in life when we need to start editing our lives. People who are redundant, emotions that don’t serve us well anymore and relationships that may have turned into millstones around our neck. Hopes are dreams that may have soured and plans may have crossed their best before date.
The time for editing could happen at any age and at any stage of life. When you start feeling that you are stagnating and there is no mental or emotional growth. When you stop evolving and moving with the times.
More so editing is not, and should not, be a one-time process. It should happen as and when needed.
When the people in your life begin to hurt you and harm you instead of making you happy. When the wrongs in the people you interact far outweigh the rights you look up to. When your feelings take you backwards, instead of spurring you ahead. When your emotions fill you with self-doubt instead of triggering your self-esteem.
That is when you need to edit.
While editing our feelings and emotions is in our control, there will be times when you can’t physically edit people out. They may be people we live and work with. People we are related to or are friends with. At such times the best course of action would be to edit them out mentally and emotionally. By not letting their words and actions matter. By not responding to their actions towards you. At all.
When you edit the story of your life completely and finally, that is when the story of your life will make a better read.
