Somethings work... some don't, it's okay!

Something’s work and some do not, whether it’s the new pair of pants you bought in the hope of rocking or a business venture or a relationship that was filled with thrills and sparks in the beginning but could not sustain its own, or that appliance you had to return to the store. These along with other things are testament to that....some things work and some don’t.
I always question what is it about human beings in general that makes them want to hold on to melting butter? Why do we put ourselves through the hardship, heartache and all those damned it because we are optimistic or straight up naive? I am a firm believer in moving on to the next thing. How will the new come into your life when there’s absolutely no room for it because you are still holding on to the ill working...? Do we hold on because we are too blind to see what’s going on or maybe we have been making it work ignoring all the brokenness so we don’t know any better or maybe just maybe its fear, fear of being without that which we so desperately hold on to. Or fear of starting over, venturing into the unknown or fear of not knowing who you are without.

Letting go... does not mean you weak, it just means you strong enough to be without, but sometimes we make excuses and prolong a toxic situation with questions like... "when do you know if it’s the right time to let go?” and we downplay ourselves, “if I let go it means I have accepted defeat”. There is so much power in the statement “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference”.

Fact still remains no matter how sad or debilitating letting go and accepting may be... something’s work and some don’t. To a certain degree there is truth in the saying “patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish”...but one must be careful that the essence of who they truly are does not vanish along with the obstacle and difficulties when exercising perseverance and patience...losing yourself is a dire loss . So forgive if you have too, quit if you must, return the goods if you still have the receipt and do not be bitter... bitterness is not a good look, it works for no one.
