Dear diary

There was a time when I used to write my diary. Infact I started writing when I was 7 or 8 year old! and was more or less consistent. I left it during the last few years during my Bachelors. When I moved to Bangalore for my masters, I started writing again... That was the first time I wrote about love... and then things happened. I destroyed that beautiful piece of my life... It was both good and bad in a way. Good because it really really helped me get over with stuff (remember the scene in Jab-we-met where Kareena asks Shahid to tear off the girl's snap and flush it off!). Bad because somewhere I lost a part of me...

Well, now I am wondering should I start writing again? Hmm.... good question....

hey, start writing... then it can become a novel to read when u r old and when you want to have a feel of the past... The other advantage is that you can make the events of the past as short stories and then recite it to your grand-children too for them to enjoy :) And all those stories of the past which you tore apart, u can of course re-write it again with whatever you remember today... writing diaries keeps memories alive, but unfortunately I don't write :(

Its difficult to "re-write" a diary... but I might just start writing again.. Lets see..

destroying something that has been a part of you for that long...

I don't know how I did it... but I did. It is REALLY REALLY TOUGH. But its as difficult as "letting go" of something very precious in life... and sometimes one must let go.

Also, I didn't destroy all of my diaries. I destroyed a particular one, that had the writings from the said period.

If I look back, I think it was a very wise decision. It really worked. I deleted all the related blog posts, letters, cards etc etc.... It taught me how to let go.
