You ever been in a situation where you try so hard in an old relationship that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
Like you know it’s not going anywhere but you just hang on you know? For the sake of old times and all of that?
Well I’ve been there. And what usually happens is that forcing it? Rather than fixing stuff it’ll most often sour the relationship even more.
Everyone comes to our lives for a reason. Some have their purposes fulfilled in a short term. Some in the mid term to long run and some would be there for the rest of our lives.
Interestingly, some won’t even discover/fulfill their purpose in your life. They just come and perambulate. But this isn’t about them. They are they. Let’s leave they alone.
So my point is, we are not going to be friends with everyone for ever.
Some people we would have to let go you know. Not because of pride, arrogance or any of that. But because we change, we grow, we develop different interests and get on different paths.
In my opinion, when we force things we ruin the good memories, good times and lessons we’ve accumulated over the years or time spent together.
So here’s what I suggest. Should you find yourself in a relationship that’s gone sour past the point of no return, it’s time to end it.
Treasure the memories, treasure the good times, and all the lessons and just let it be.
After all, in the words of Sandi Lynn, “at some point you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life.”
