Theres many times in life when we’re presented with situations and people that we really don’t know what to do with. They challenge our beliefs and test our patience. They make us question our own sanity and our place in this world. They force us to look deeply into ourselves. These relationships and situations don’t always end well, sometimes they just end.
If you’re at that place in your life, I want to encourage you. Look for the lessons that these things are teaching you, as there is always a lesson to be learned. There is good in every situation and sometimes we just might have to look a little bit harder to find it. Give every situation and relationship all that you have to give. Work with good intention and operate in grace and understanding. Then you can always take comfort in the knowledge that you’ve done your best. And really, what more can you offer than your very best?
If you’re feeling more sorrow than joy. If you’re giving and giving and never receiving. If you cry more than you rejoice. If you enjoy someones absence more than their presence. If you feel like you’re losing yourself while trying to build someone up, it just might be time to move on.
Please recognize the value of yourself and how important your own health and welfare is. At some point, you’re going to have to say enough is enough and do what is best for you and your family.
When it’s time to close the chapter, close it and move on. You’ve done all that you could, take comfort in that. Life is meant to be enjoyed, move forward and smile. It’s all going to be okay.
