“i had a flashback to something that never existed”
Déjà vu (n): “already seen”; the feeling that you have already experienced something, when in fact it is happening for the first time
Everybody knows this term and I can almost guarantee that everybody has used it at least once in their life. It’s a weird sensation, to be in a situation that you swear you’ve been in before yet can’t recall the specific time it happened previously.
Oddly enough this sense of déjà vu happens to me quite often. Most of the time all it takes is a second or a glance, and it’s hit me. But just as quick as it came, it left. It leaves me feeling uncomfortable and confused. Why was this familiar? Why was it that one second that clicked something in my brain? And why, for the life of me, can’t I bring it back?
This has happened to me so many times before that I’ve started to overlook it. I’ll do a double take, but then not even think twice about it. Sad, isn’t it? Déjà vu is such a wild sensation and it’s been lost on me. All I can say is that I hope I don’t lose it forever. I love having the little glimpses of familiarity. Who knows, maybe they’re images from a past life? I’ve never really thought much about the notion of a previous life, but why not? There’s no claim that proves or disproves it, so for now I’ll just believe what I want.
Till next time, xx
