I was gently reminded today that the same people you’ve come to care for and perhaps even love, may be the same ones you have to walk away from in the end. Steve Harvey stated that the same people you started your journey with, may not be able to go with you.
When you really sit back and think about it, the people you meet in your journey are all in different stages of their lives. Some are trying to figure out what to do with it, some don’t know what happened to it and others are wading through murky waters just trying to get some air. Despite who you meet, you’ll have to deal with some sort of personal and emotional baggage.
At some point, you’ll have to understand that you can’t help every person you meet, you can’t argue over every bad decision a person makes, you can’t will a person to change or sit around patiently waiting for change to happen. Hoping for the best won’t cut it and arguing over it isn’t always ideal.
The reality is, people will always be people; and people will always do what they want until it comes time for them not to. Unfortunately, that’s usually after someone gets hurt.
Sometimes the best thing to do is sit back, remove yourself from the situation as best as you can and let adults…be adults.
