Nobody likes any kind of break-up and everyone hates a messy break-up.
There are a lot of things or situations in life that give us that certain feeling, the feeling of squeezing out the last drop, knowing there soon will be nothing left but to toss it in the bin.
My mom always said that you should never leave a man or any situation until every single bone in your body is completely done with it. This is the only way you will never even consider taking a short walk back memory-lane, when you´re done, you have to be all done!
But when are you truly done? Should relationships be treated like favorite shoes and worn till every stitch has loosened up or should they be appreciated enough to be put away in time, in peace while they are still in good shape and still capable of being adored for the happiness they brought
Sometimes you see a relationship falling apart piece by piece or maybe it was never even built right and you are only starting to accept it and so you are forced to question whether you should quit while you are ahead, before the boat completely sinks, while the good memories are still intact.
It's a bittersweet decision and I´ll swallow the bitter so I can remember the sweet
But when you love someone, you don't want to ever completely lose him or her, even if it means letting them go before the candle has finally blown out.
I don´t want to end up hating someone I love in order to be sure I tried my best to make it work. I don't want to feel disgusted every time his face pops up on my wall, just to know that I had squeezed all the drops out. I still need to be able to see him as the great person I fell for, to still be amazed at his smile and feel the warmth in his embrace … even as just a friend.
But do you end up regretting too much if you don't stick it out until every bone in your body is fed up? See that's the part I'm not too sure about but in the long run, I would rather regret that than not trying to save the beautiful parts of ‘us’ that are left.
What are your views on this? Quit before the big fall or stick it out until the bittersweet just becomes bitter and there is nothing left to contemplate about?
