I write about my life and life itself seen through my eyes for who can write through the experiences of others if not their own?

How good is that?

There comes a time when we move on after having held on for way too long. When the change in attitude comes, when our life resumes a normal course, when we reach the other side of the mountain, we hear the comments “it’s good that you are over him or her”. But how good is it?

All relationships make a difference in our lives; all leave something behind. They come for a reason, a season or a life time. But it is those that get to the very bottom of your soul, the ones that come to your life only once and become part of your life. They seldom stay a life time. We only wish they did.

And why don’t they? Why throw away what we were so lucky to find once? It is seldom that people get to experience relationships that are fulfilling. Why not save it? Maybe they didn’t love as strongly or maybe they were afraid to love - stupid reason to leave…I just don’t buy that one. In love all is possible, there is magic in love. And when we truly love we should never give up. But we do.

If we exhausted all resources to save a relationship, I can’t help but believe that we would have never wanted to consider getting over it. And why is it that it couldn’t be repaired? If two people work towards the same objective, the end result has to be good. But seldom two work together. It is usually one person trying, one person rejecting.

When all is said and done, when our stubbornness wins, when we made our point and walked away from a unique relationship, one that will never be again, how good is that?
