Whoever came up with the phrase “In with the new, out with the old” certainly wasn’t talking about the past. More than likely they were talking about clothes! Maybe they were even talking about certain items like cars or brushes. Whatever they were talking about, let’s make sure we don’t use this with all elements of our life, alright?
Although there is a time and place for everything, not all things should just be thrown to the wayside. There are certain things that should be held onto so that we can remember the importance of what we have. What am I talking about you ask? Well I am talking about remembering elements in our past so that we can have a better future.
Just like items that may be carelessly tossed aside and replaced with new things, sometimes people forget the important things that have contributed to where they are now. In a relationship, a person may forget something that happened a long time ago, but this only makes them forget about why they fell in love with the person they are with. For example, let’s say someone forgot how they met their significant other or forgot what made them attracted to them. Without this to keep them going, they may lose interest or not appreciate the person they are still with. This is true as well if they forgot the struggles they have gone through to be together, or life changing events that only were able to happen due to each other. These things are important to remember. It makes our relationship have a solid foundation and without it, well then you just have a building that could easily collapse under the right circumstances.
If you look around certain places around the world, there are ghost towns that can be found. These ghost towns used to be a booming place for people to live until something went wrong. It’s interesting to visit these places and perhaps see where they had their downfall. But you don’t want a ghost town coming from your relationship, so what is there that you can do? Well remembering your love for each other, events that happened, and also maybe even looking to see where your strong points were can help. Just because you have new memories and new events, it doesn’t mean that the ones in the past are less important. Remembering the past is sometimes just as important as planning for the future. Don’t let your memories be lost to a ghost town of a relationship. Remember, cherish, and hold tight to those special memories. You never know when you might need them.
