Hey guys! Happy Monday. Is it just me or are the weekends a little too short? Maybe the weekdays are just too long. Either way, I am thinking of meeting with the person who thought of the 2-day weekend idea and having a little sit down with them….we’ve got some things to discuss.
Over the weekend I actually ran into someone from my not so distant past and the conversation both angered and inspired me. Weird combo, huh? I left the conversation confused and upset. Even worse, I went home with nothing but time to go over all of the things said which only confused me more. My relationship with this person has been a deep one; one filled with laughter, happiness, passion, anger, tears, and sadness. You name it, I have felt it. So I shouldn’t be too surprised that a deep conversation like this one could end up going so south. Naturally I spent my whole night mad at not the other person, but at myself for letting yet another argument hit me so hard and touch my emotions so deeply. Then it hit me. Maybe the only way to end this rollercoaster cycle is to put an end to the relationship altogether.
It’s a tough thing to face the truth and accept the things that you are most humiliated to admit. It’s even harder to tackle these moments head on. Burning a bridge with someone is never easy, especially if you care about that person. It is often hard to think that you can lead a life without having that person fill the spot that they are in. However, sometimes bridges need to be burned in order to open up a new point of view. It has taken me a long time to realize this, but I have come to believe that the people you meet in this life (especially those you form relationships with) are there for a reason. No matter how mad or how happy you are with them, how long or how short the relationship is, and no matter how good or how bad things may end; these people are lessons. You need them in your life. Some, you will need forever because they are meant to be there. Some, you will only have for a short amount of time, but that doesn’t mean it was a waste of time. Take the experiences and memories with the people in your life, even those that have a history of bad memories, and let them teach you something about yourself.
I know that even though I am in the process of breaking down a bridge, that I have learned from the relationship it connects to. I have learned important lessons like what expectations I have of others in my life, how I want to be treated by others, how I should be treating those around me, and how to be honest with myself and others no matter how much I want to bottle it up inside of me. Would I have learned these lessons without burning this bridge? Sure, but I am happy I have learned them this way and that they have started to light the way for my future.Pin It
