A CHOICE I MAKE

TODAY I STARTED TRYING TO LET GO OF A FEELING FOR SOMEONE WHOM I GAVE A PIECE OF MY HEART TO. FOR THIS PERSON IT MIGHT BE EASY TO DO, BUT FOR ME, I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO JUST THROW AWAY THE GOOD THAT CAME FROM IT EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT HAVE SEEMED JUST A SECOND COMPARED TO A LIFE TIME.

 I HAVE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS THAT WHEN I GIVE THE GIFT OF A PIECE OF MY HEART TO SOMEONE FREELY, I MUST REMEMBER THAT THE GIFT THEN BELONGS TO THAT PERSON TO DO AS THEY CHOOSE. AND WHEN THAT PERSON CHOOSES TO MOVE TOWARD A DIFFERENT DESTINATION THAN MY OWN, I TRY TO REMIND THEM THAT I WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR THEM AND THAT I AM HERE IF THEY EVER NEED A FRIEND.

 THINK WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT ME BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO JUST THROW AWAY SOMEBODY THAT HAS TREATED ME WITH RESPECT BUT HONESTLY FEELS THAT THEIR PATH MIGHT LEAD DOWN A DIFFERENT ROAD. I BELIEVE THAT ONCE A PERSON HAS EARNED A RIGHT TO A PIECE OF MY HEART, THEY FOREVER DESERVE A “EMERGENCY BACK DOOR” TO THAT FRIENDSHIP SHOULD THEY EVER WANT IT. BUT THE CHOICE IS THEIRS ALONE.

I DON’T BELIEVE IN GOODBYE’S SO I LIKE TO SAY “UNTIL NEXT TIME”. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE WILL HOLD SO I FEEL I MUST GIVE THE PEOPLE I CARE ABOUT THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO BE IN MY FUTURE AGAIN SHOULD THEY EVER CHANGE THEIR MINDS, NO MATTER WHAT.

THE GOOD GUYS DON’T RUN AWAY FROM YOU. WE RUN TO YOU WHEN YOU NEED US.
