Pulling A Tooth

My dentist once told me that letting go is like pulling a tooth. When it is pulled out, you’re relieved. But how many times does your tongue run itself over the spot where the tooth once was?

Probably a hundred times a day. Just because it was not hurting you doesn’t mean you did not notice it. It leaves a gap and sometimes you see yourself missing it terribly. It will take time to let go off the pain but it’ll be worth a wait.

Sooner or later you’ll question yourself that pulling the tooth was in vain or worth it?

It was causing you so much pain that letting it go off was the best decision.

In short, you have to be strong now. People will hurt you, shake you, blame you & leave you. You’ll have to stand alone for yourself, no matter how hard and painful it is, you have to let go off few situations, people & everything that brings you down.

Be strong now, because things will ultimately get better. It might be stormy now, but it can’t rain forever….

But what if when someone has promised you that I will be with you together and forever ??

    Alas. The first time this happens, you fight and try to make it the way someone said it would be. When it happens again and again—whether it be about love or other promises that people are unable to keep—there a few things you begin to realize depending on what you choose to believe about people and life.

    1. No one can be trusted and all people are liars. OR
    2. Sometimes people break promises due to circumstances beyond their control.
    3. Sometimes life has a different path for us than the one we imagined and thus, the things that we envisioned are no longer possible or sustainable or viable or feasible or beneficial.

    Personally, I have come around to believing #3. It allows you to keep your faith and hope in humanity and yet accept the adventures life brings our way. It’s quite liberating if you are able to get to this point.

    Hope that helps.

I’ve read about this analogy before and it just works so unusually well.

    theunblowndust · November 24, 2017 at 9:10 am

    It certainly does.

Great comparison … yes the pain goes away, but if you don’t replace the whole where the tooth once was, with an implant, you’re always reminded of the pain you once felt.

    Your tongue finds that hole consistently.
