PostHeaderIcon RELATIONSHIPS LEAVE “STUFF” BEHIND

When we are involved in relationships, it is serious business!
Attachments are formed.
Familiarity becomes a standard.
When our relationships work, happiness abounds.
When they don’t, discontentment is our by-product.
Getting rid of the bad apples and walking away are not always easy tasks.
We may find ourselves with folks who should have left light years ago.
What should we do … keep them around or let them go?
Neil Sedaka sang to us in the 1970’s, “Breaking up is hard to do!”
Kenny Rogers harmonized, “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em; know when to fold ’em; know when to walk away; know when to run.”
Challenging, isn’t it?
Therefore, it is imperative that we are careful and selective about who we let into our lives and into our precious space.
Invariably, leaving is not easy when there is sticky relationship residue all over the place. Disconnecting can be even harder.
Whether it is in a good or bad way, people “rub off!”
Sweet is better than bitter; good is better than bad.
You choose.
Choose wisely.
One thing is for sure.
We live with our choices – good or bad.

Laid off, terminated, betrayed, pushed to the curb, loved and lost, heartbreak, … which situation describes a hardship that you experienced?
If your hardship isn’t listed, undoubtedly you have been disappointed and hurt beyond belief somewhere in time! “Life is not a bed of roses.”
Have you ever found yourself in such an uncomfortable position that you didn’t know which way to turn?
Either path – the right or the left – were unappealing and unpleasant. To be in this position – between a rock and a hard place – is not desirable because you are stuck between two bad options!
Maneuverability is tough. Rising above the difficulty is tougher.
Regardless of your step, the wrong direction can be costly and painful. Oh my!
Pessimism can easily cloud your vision. It is tough when your directional choices offer no viable options and little hope. Decisions, decisions; yet, you have to select – the best – of two undesirable outcomes.
No one wants to choose “which poison to drink.”
Thus, it is critical that you make a choice that will permit you to “breath” and survive.
Gird your loins; keep trying; keep moving; stay positive. Your skin is tougher than you think. Positivity and an upbeat mental disposition can be your saving grace.
Believe in yourself; believe that you can conquer your “enemy” and rise above the problem that is holding you down. Ultimately and hopefully, the bad wind will breeze over. When your strength and endurance are tested – prayer, faith, strength, courage, and hard work can uplift you.
As the southern saying goes, “Hard times don’t last forever. Daylight comes in the morning.”
Tomorrow is a new day!
It can bring a fresh start; a new beginning … whereby the pain of your past becomes only a memory!
