Sometimes there is just no use fighting the battle when the outcome is predetermined. Through the good times and the bad, they say. What if the good times are not that great and the bad times are terrible? Why try and make it work when deep down inside you know that ultimately it can’t? That it is doomed to failure. No one really benefits if you are not in it with all of your heart and soul. You’re just cheating yourself and them.
Just because it seemed perfect at the start does not mean that it actually was or still is. It does not mean that it was supposed to last forever. Rose colored glasses are just that - glasses. Sometimes they need to be taken off to see the world in its reality. Maybe the whole thing was just a stepping stone, a marker along the journey of experience with the purpose of teaching and growing you. A practice run, so to speak, for when the real thing comes along. To prepare you and ensure that all the past dumb, petty and irrelevant things you put in the way don’t come up again in the future.
What if ‘the right one’ is waiting somewhere else and all you’re doing is holding on to this wrong hope, right here and right now because that’s what you’re supposed to do? Then again, they don’t say the grass is greener for no reason. Is it really or are you just lighting up that grass to an unrealistic brightness with the doubts and insecurities you have now from your current spot on the other side of that fence?
Maybe you owe it to yourself to keep the fight going because of how things used to be and might be again one day. That may be the right choice. On the other hand, how much longer can you persist with something you have giving up on in your heart? It might finally be time to move on. Because after all, the end is just the start of a new beginning.
