“And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun, and the way that gravity pulls on everyone” – Embrace
From the Wikipedia, gravitiy is a natural phenomenon by which all physical bodies attract each other. It is most commonly experienced as the agent that gives weight to objects with mass and causes them to fall to the ground when dropped.
From my own simplest form of definition however, it is the “pulling factor” that forces you (or things) to stay right where you are.
To reflect the term in a different view, other than what has been scientifically defined i.e from life perspective, what do you think is the factor that’s “pulling” you?
It could be many things, but the first thought that comes into my mind is the memories.
Be it the good or the bad one, I think both carry lessons that somehow can help you figure out which direction you want to go. Either you let yourself stuck in memories that keeps dragging you from moving on, or that same memories will pull you to the opposite direction. Though it may take a while for some people to really move forward, I personally think that whatever memories you had in the past will pull you in the direction of being a stronger person in the future. And I do believe that someday eventually, you will look back at your life, realizing that memories are in fact, the force that pulls you through. Just like the gravity that is always there but at the same time it never stops you from moving :)
“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”
