How Do You Live With Something You Were Not Supposed To See?
What starts out as a regular day…
Turns out to be the day that you will see something you never were supposed to see…
Which leaves me wondering….
“How Do You Live With Something You Were Not Supposed To See”?
And when I speak of “seeing”, I am not talking about seeing with your eyes only.
I am looking at seeing with everything you have!
Ears, eyes and the like…

So many things happen everyday
Even as we speak, there is many things going on now.
How many of these things that are going on, are you actually “supposed to see”?
And on the other hand, how many of these things that are going on, aren’t you actually “supposed to see”?

Prior to seeing whatever you saw,
Your life was a very simple one….you were so much fuller of happier times, may be.
And you probably had all these dreams and plans for your life.
But, now check….
It is all gone!!!
Whatever you saw that day was probably some of the darkest and most gruesome stuff you had ever seen
Moreover, you probably felt the shivers going down your spine, at the mere sight and thought of whatever you saw that day.
You are at a point in your life where you cannot “just forget and move on” like nothing happened!
It has probably been some years since you saw what you saw
And it is eating you up, from the inside out
Leaving you with so many wounds that so many just cannot see on the go but can vividly see, once they “have taken a seat”.
Now, how do you live with something you were not supposed to see, in this case for example?
Remember, the mind does not really let things go
It receives and stores where it has to store whatever it has received, for good
How you get to ensure that whatever was stored in your mind does not come back to haunt you, that is something entirely up to you!

I mean, you can get somebody to best guide you on how you can do that healthiest and all
But, when the time comes to do the work, it all boils down to you, as an individual!
Only you can fully understand what you are going through; the rest of us can only have mental imagery in us, to try to picture and piece together what could have happened, really.
I wish you the best of luck and fortune
As you find a way of living, with whatever you saw, that day for the rest of your life.

😩😩😩 aaawwww….I hope you learn to live with it amicably!
Sometimes it’s so hard to let go of traumatic things we have seen or experienced. It takes a lot of courage and work to be able to deal with all the sentiments these experiences brought us.
This is such an incredible perspective, and something not talked about much. Thank you for sharing!
Yes, sometimes you see more than you want to and you can’t unsee it once you do. You think you’ll always feel one way about something, but a moment can change your mind forever.
It’s great to know and discover other people’s perspectives about life. So many things happen every day, with the pandemic I think we all have seen things we shouldn’t but we live with it
I can relate to this much. Only we can fully understand what we are going through
It’s all mental at this stage. You have to be mentally strong as sometimes your mind “selects” something you can see which you don’t want to. It’s all about being strong at low times and being more confident to face the uphill challenges of life.
I can be so hard to forgive and forget when it comes to seeing something or just being aware of something. It is a difficult situation.
I have definitely seen things that I shouldn’t have, and struggle with it to this day. I hope to one day let it go.
I have definitely seen some things in my life that I shouldn’t have seen. My advice is to choose love and focus on the positive vs. dwelling in the negative. It is not easy to do, but it is necessary. Counseling also helps.
I love the beautiful imagery you used here! You’re such a great writer!

This is a interesting perceptive. Thank you for this.
👍👍 you’re welcome.
Thanks for sharing this post. It’s thought provoking which is always good. We all have things that we’re trying to work through and figure out. <3
All the feels for this. I saw something I was not supposed to see at the beginning of the pandemic and it took me months of work and therapy to learn to live with it/get over it.
