I recently had a conversation with a friend who has definitely been torn between love and facing the inevitable. It is often that we find ourselves in a situation where we have a hard time doing what we know in our guts and in our hearts is the best thing for us and those around us. But when you love someone you want to give them the benefit of the doubt and so you keep making excuses and giving them chances. What we often fail to realize is that each time we give them another opportunity to right a situation the fix is always temporary. The temporary fix is always good for a while but then slowly we begin to see the same patterns starting to surface. Although it is painful because of time and emotions sometimes the best thing is to let go. Now doing this is not going to be easy for some because of the ties that bind you to that person; but why must one continue to go through the constant pain of disappointment. Sometimes we must love enough to walk away and let go, not only for yourself but for them as well. Your letting go may be doing them a favor...everything does happen for a reason.
