A Reason to Walk Away

A perfect scene when you walk away. You only see the receding back, hidden emotions, and the distance.

How many times has someone walked away from a situation, let's say, knowing that a life-threatening situation is unfolding before their very eyes to follow the blind crowd? People find a reason to walk away.

It makes perfect sense to listen to an erred crowd, large in numbers, filled with ignorance than to listen to the one who stands alone. It is easier to speak to others than to the one who is affected. I always wondered why, and after years I have come to realize that in the end, no matter what situation you face, you and only you will be left standing to fight alone, to fight for survival in a world that believes that what is spoken in numbers means it has to be right or true. The pain that you feel can only be carried by you. Even if you have someone to console you, it is a burden only you hold deep in your heart. Having ignorant people around you makes it even harder for the pain to go away.

People find it hard to believe in miracles. However, I am here to tell you that miracles do happen. In every situation that I have faced, at the homefront or abroad, when danger lurked close to me, I came out of the situation alive. They were life-threatening moments that taught me valuable life lessons.

You don't really need great minds, great visionaries to change the world. The world is so misplaced right now. I think as days go by, with all that is happening around us, we will soon come to realize that it takes the man on the street, you and I, to build a world that cares enough not to destroy lives but to lift lives instead.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Every once in a while, there will be a place in the far-off distance that will come alive for you. That perfect picture that you keep embedded in your heart to someday weave a story behind it.

Just as the Colorado Rocky Mountains inspired me with this story in 2016, which I managed to put together and publish in 2021. A winner in the TCK Publishing 2021 Reader's Choice Awards Contest, a snow-stopping love story - you will never see snow the same way again - shobana

I finally got, As Delicate as Snow, published on Shobana's Book Station as an Ebook. You can get the book here: https://payhip.com/b/04pjQ or visit my Ebook blog: https://shobanabookstation.blogspot.com/2022/01/as-delicate-as-snow-ebook.html.
