There is no putting life on hold.
The universe wouldn’t wait for you to be ready. Nothing and no one would. Life keeps happening, even if you don’t want it to, even if you want to wait, just for a little bit, and catch a breath. Minutes and years fly by, merciless. And the whole world keeps spinning in accordance with them.
Let’s say you enter a river, this bursting flow of life, which is so intense that it nearly kills you. Gasping for air and fighting for your own life, you reach for the rocky bank, holding on it with both hands, breathing deeply. The water doesn’t wait. It changes and flows, being pushed by currents, winds and all sorts of things.
And the moment you decide that you are ready to face the life again, everything will be very different from what you remember. Close friends would be distant, worries forgotten, problems deeper and love long gone.
