I was just mass deleting and clearing over a hundred thousand messages and perhaps a hundred over photos and I saw some really old photos and screen grabs from the past.
Though my past relationship ended in tragedy, I was blessed to not bear any grudge against my ex. Perhaps because I know he did his best too.
What surprised me was the happiness that was captured in photos and messages that I kept. I have this habit of taking screenshots of messages that I treasure, even though nowadays whatsapp allow us to ‘star’ messages, perhaps from old habit.
And the good memories always stay.
They always do.
