We spend our lifetime pretty much with the same people without unconsciously stopping to think whether the people we share our lives with are right for us. We assume they are without giving it a second’s thought.
It often takes a disagreement for us to recognise that the person we thought we knew, isn’t the person we’ve come to know. Moving on from people and situations takes guts, because they’re whom we’ve known. We’re comforted by what’s familiar, even if the familiar doesn’t always turn out to be right.
It’s what we know but it’s not where we want or need to be. Sometimes life is about making different choices to move on. So when would it be the right time for us to move on?
When the signs become obvious and we seem to be backing a one-horse pony. When we’re becoming more and more disillusioned. Emotionally we’re beginning to struggle and we have no support coming in from those we thought we had support from. When we have a sense, a feeling about someone or something, it’s definitely the right time for us to move on.
It’s a fact not all people will have our backs. The exceptions to the rule are our children of course, but generally speaking when we build our lives around people we may come away disappointed. It’s good to have people around us of course, life would be difficult without, but we must all work from the same page. Where we think we are, we sometimes find we’re not.
We hold on because we fear letting go, because to let go brings uncertainty. I would rather have lived with uncertainty, than continue to hold on to people that weren’t right for me. We must be ready to introduce new changes if we feel the need and it’s right for us.
