As an army brat I grew up all my life moving from one place to another. Hence leaving behind relationships and friends as we went along. It wasn’t easy leaving friends behind but it wasn’t earth shattering either. We moved along and friends came and went. Some relationships really stuck and have seen many postings and years. Some just withered away with time. We moved on as defence personnel’s family and so did relationships. Time and we didn't stop for anyone.
Today it’s a different story. It is so difficult to say good-bye, even if the relationship or friendship is harmful for self. Its like your left brain and right brain are just not connecting. Your heart has malfunctioned. It’s not responding to emotions. You are sticking on to things that are toxic and rotting.
Friends who haven’t got the strength anymore to take you for who you are, weak partners, pretentious relatives, jaded colleagues, boring jobs, people who are not strong enough to stand by you. Then why am I not able to get out of this toxic situation? It’s not just me thats in this quandary. The more I look around the more I see the same with the world around me. We just want destiny to make those hard calls for us. We are on bended knees taking the weight of useless meaningless relationships, routines, jobs, people...
Aren’t our choices supposed to add that extra zing in our lives…then why is it weighing us down? Do we weave such tangled webs around us that the very webs that were to be our safety nets, become our emotional deathbeds?!
A seed for thought for the emotionally parched?!
