Many people believe that all relationships should last, but that is just not possible. Some people are supposed to come into your life and then go. You may not want them to go, but they are supposed to. Both of you have lessons to learn from one another, and then you are supposed to move on. It may hurt, but you will survive . Too many people are hanging on to the wrong relationships with the wrong people and trying to make them work. Not all relationships are supposed to work out, some are meant to end.
The reason they will never work is because they were never meant to. For those of you that believe things are meant to be, you must also then believe that some things are not meant to be as well. To keep holding on to a relationship that was not meant to work shows that not only are you not learning from your mistakes, but you are repeating them.
There are people who are right for you and people who are wrong for you. In order for a relationship to work you need to have both people on the same page, wanting the same things, and have compatibility as well. The drama, constant chaos and butting heads is not a fight you are destined to overcome just because you want it to work out. There are some battles worth fighting for, but not all battles are worth fighting for. Choose your battles wisely, and know when to surrender and give up.
Instead of wasting month after month, year after year on a relationship that was supposed to end a long time ago, learn to let go. Stop focusing on what could be with that person, but what has been with that person. The future and passage of time does not change things for the better, so stop thinking that it will. We are not all-powerful beings that can make everything work out the way we want if we just hang in there. We also have to accept that in life we will not always get everything that we want. This relationship you have tried so hard to save is not necessarily worth saving. They all can’t be.
Not every date must lead to a relationship.
Not every relationship must lead to commitment.
Not every relationship will grow and reach another level.
Not every relationship will get better.
Not every relationship is meant to last.
There are people in your life that are meant to come and go, if you won’t let them go, you are doing a disservice to yourself. Let go, learn your lessons, move on, and get closure
