It Goes On
Even though you think you are braced for negative impact, when it happens, it tends to knock you for a loop anyway.
I am fairly certain we all have at least one person ( usually a family member or “Ex” ) in our lives we simply cannot please no matter what we do. In my life, it is someone who will go for years without speaking to me on some trumped-up charge or whim. Then one day they turn up, turn on the charm, and I am back in the web.
I’m not looking for trouble. I’m just a sucker for forgiveness and re-do’s.
I truly believe in the healing power of love.
I trust my heart and in my heart I always know – it’s just a matter of time before they turn on me again. Inevitably they do. I’ll say or do something displeasing to them. Something anyone else in the world would not bother to blink at.
Some people are too damaged and therefore easily offended. No matter how lightly you tread you are going to mis-step. It’s a set-up and it’s just plain sad. Sad and ugly and we will forever be at a loss as to just what to do about it.
“Ya can’t please ’em all!” This is what we tell ourselves. Doesn’t make it hurt any less. Doesn’t make the going any easier.
We carefully make decisions and somehow muster up the courage to honor them. If you enjoy life better as a pretty peace. Then it’s your duty to keep that peace. Constant or even occasional drama and damage control is not peace-filled. I don’t enjoy throwing people away. If they happen to be in your family or the parent of your child it really is tough and it doesn’t seem right. I almost always let people “back in” after they have messed up terribly.
It’s like this: Sometimes, ya just gotta let ’em go. There is no shame in good-bye if your sanity requires it.
It is not our job in life to make lovely storytale endings out of personal nightmares.
Consider the source of your disrupted peace. If you have been around the “crazy block” more than twice with this person it may be time to accept what you cannot change.
Mr. Frost isn’t the only poet that knows how life goes on. This poet believes it will go on with or without the one person I simply cannot please. Only took me a few decades to learn this lesson. Hey, I’m not proud! I’m just peaceful.
