You can’t unring a bell- no matter how hard you try. Once it’s said, once it is out there for consumption, once the damage is done. The permanency of some things is startling. When you’re younger, I think it’s easier to unsee or unhear or unfeel, you’re more malleable to the things that go on around you, but sometimes there’s just no going back. I have learned this across some years of my life and again today. Maybe not being able to unring a bell is the universe’s way of pushing you in the right direction…sometimes away from certain people and places and towards something new.
