Sometimes in life, you’ve got to quit the fight and battle.
When it comes to important things like, taking care of your health or paying down debts, you mustn’t quit. But when it comes to other things, walking away and giving up on a situation or person can be incredibly smart.
Consider the person who has tried for so long to make a broken marriage work.
Consider the person who is trying to get a friend sober or get the person help with other issues all with no effort being done on the part of the other party.
Consider the person who has tried so hard to make a relationship get off the ground while the other person does nothing.
In those situations, walking away and letting go and seeing what the universe has in store for you is the best thing you can do.
If you’re that person putting in all the effort into a relationship while the other person does nothing– give up!
If you’re the person trying to get someone to get help for an addiction or problem, yet the person refuses to get treatment … give up!
Beating yourself to a pulp or putting all this effort into people who don’t want to change or don’t want to try is a worthless battle.
You will walk away empty with nothing. There is nothing wrong with saying, “I did my best, I tried to help someone or save a relationship that mattered to me, but it’s time to give up.”
Why should you or anyone else work so hard to save something when the other person doesn’t care about you
The other person isn’t willing to get help and fix him or herself in the case of addiction, anger issues etc.
If you tried your best and gave it your all, that’s all anyone can ask of you.
If you tried to love someone, care about someone or help someone, good for you!
That’s love and compassion.
You can lead someone to the water but you cannot make him or her drink. If the person will not drink, stop leading the caravan to happiness. Let that person learn on his or her own the hard way– because that is probably the only way any change will occur.
You did your best. Good for you.
Now let it go and see what the universe has in store.
If that person doesn’t try to fight for your relationship– he or she isn’t worthy.
If that person doesn’t get sober, at least you tried.
You catch my drift.
