What Will Always Be Lost

This article is brought to you by the twelfth Blaugust 2020 Promptapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger SDWeasel over at Unidentified Signal Source: What’s something you’ve lost along the way that you would love to have back?

Loss is an unfortunate part of our lives, as much as I wish it freaking wasn’t. As we age we lose everything from frivolous material possessions to loved ones. And heck, we even lose the very essence of who we once were as time marches on. It’s crazy to think about how much our minds change as we are exposed to different events.

The Legends of Twitch

If you would’ve told me last year that I’d be spending most of my waking hours in 2020 watching other people play video games on the internet, I honestly would’ve called you crazy.

“Why in the hell would I want to watch other gamers game when I can spend that time playing video games for myself?”

They’re there for you in your darkest moments, and you’re there for them in theirs. Merely talking to them makes you smile and gives you comfort. They become as important to us as family members. Soul friends, as one of my best friends likes to put it.

Never in a million years could you ever imagine such a strong emotional bond being broken. Just like in all the cheesy stories, the power of true friendship can overcome anything, right??

Wrong!!

Sadly, harsh reality begs to differ. We are all human beings, and all human beings create drama. Longstanding close connections you took for granted can be nuked beyond repair in the blink of an eye. It’s those feelz, man.

Human emotions are the complex and messy elements in any relationship equation. When incompatible mental health issues meet, it can be comparable to the reactions that occur when fire touches ice or lightning strikes water.

None of these elements are inherently good or bad; they just clash.
