Sometimes we have to look past the entitlement we feel.
Not because we are not deserving of that which we feel entitled to,
But because the other person may simply not be capable of giving us what we need.
This could be mentally, emotionally, financially or, spiritually.
It’s easy to vilify people who can’t give us what we want.
It’s even easier to vilify people who don’t want to give us what we want.
Labeling things as good or bad is the quickest way for our minds to process situations when things don’t go our way.
Take a step back and look deeper.
See this person as a human being, with a past and with a perspective of their own.
Understand that people are far too complex to be constricted within the good/bad binary.
Just as your actions that you have taken have been based on your own complexity(that you may not even fully understand).
And sometimes, it’s okay not to understand exactly why someone can’t give us what we want.
It’s okay for things to be left unsaid.
It’s okay not to have closure.
Because things don’t necessarily have to have a definite beginning or a definite end.
People, experiences and relationships are always in motion.
The sooner we loosen our grasp on the ebbs and flows of life,
The more we are able to appreciate things when they come and eventually, when they leave.
Until Next Time,
