Red Pill, Blue Pill


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Red Pill, Blue Pill.”

This post is suppose to be about “If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?” But the title struck another debate in my mind. So here are my thoughts…

If you could forget all the hurt, forget the person you deeply love but can’t be with, by simply taking a pill… would you do it? Would you stop torturing yourself by forgetting the good times, forgetting how much you care?

I don’t want to forget, I would rather live with the constant heartache… my mind telling me that “he doesn’t see you as good enough”, rather than forgetting what it felt like waking up next to him and thinking “wow who thought I could be this happy”.

Would you give up the reminder of the good memories to get rid of the heartache? Are you willing to move on?
