And know when to throw in the towel. I’ve held off on writing this post for a while now and it is possibly a little morbid on the supposed day of love, however giving up, letting go and moving on are all part of our own happiness. Giving up and letting go of whatever has a hold of you is essential to your own happiness. More often it is easier for others to see than it is for you to see for yourself.
As I sit in my health class which is a complete and utter waste of my time, it is clear that the old man, while he appears to love his job, is just no longer fit to teach. Believe it or not I’m not ignoring his lecture, we were supposed to take a test while he grades our notebooks. The test was moved to Thursday, he ranted about tabloids and Whitney Houston for about twenty minutes, now I patiently await the return of my notebook . . . Effective teaching at its best.
My boss, should also throw in her towel. She has changed, the economy has changed and it stresses her out more than it should.
I have changed too, I’ve realized that I cannot let other people get me down. In particular I am talking about lost friendships. This is something I am no stranger to, but this time is different. This time there was no explanation and no foresight of the distancing that took place.
Just after our wedding last July a group of friends who all had roles in the wedding began excluding us from the group. It was a cooperative effort and it quickly became clear that for some reason they did not want to be our friends any longer.
The situation has eaten at me for months, without any sort of closure or explanation understanding why our place in that particular circle of friends no longer existed. Why no explanation was even offered? Why even when running into one another in public it is as though I never existed in their lives. Too much hurt and no answers. I know that’s why I have held on as long as I have, but it is time for me to let go. I need to accept that this situation will not change and that I may never know why it began in the first place.
I would have advised someone to move on months ago, Steven has. For me it is much more difficult. Until the last week or so maybe a small part of me still hoped it was all just temporary, however running into most of the group in public the last month or so has proved otherwise. It hurts, but it is time for me to swiftly rip off the last of the band-aid covering my wound.
Have you ever been in a similar situation where a friendship ended with no logical explanation why? Or have you held on to something by a thin thread when you knew that you should just let go? Have you been on the other side and ended a relationship or friendship without offering an explanation? If so, why didn’t you explain? And what was the reason for your decision?
Much love always
