Relationships are like buildings, it takes time, efforts, attention to build, paint and furnish to your taste, it also takes the same and more to maintain and despite all these can be torn down in less than a mintue; just like that and it’s like it never even existed, all you have are just memories.
One may wonder why it doesn’t take the same time it took to build to be destroyed, but that’s just life. Life is not always; give and take, in that you don’t always get what you give.
You give love, trust, loyalty, attention and what do you get in return cheat, lies and betrayal.
People who remain in toxic relationships are always seen as cowards who can’t see beyond their nose but these are actually people who have seen what they want and not willing to let go easily, that’s why they keep granting second chances always hoping it will be the last.
Bob Marley once said “Truth is everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for”.
Autumn Kohler also said ” when a relationship gets bad it’s like standing on a broken glass, if you stay you keep hurting? If you walk away you will hurt but eventually heal.
One would wonder why people still venture into this connection called relationship and others keep granting second chances even when it’s obvious it wont be the last.
Could it be that they enjoy being hurt by others? Could it be that they are just weak? Could it be that one can only really love one person, that’s why you keep fighting when you believe you finally found that person?
Well life itself is a risk and only the courageous get to live it to it’s fullest. Same as relationships, you just gotta put your self out there expecting the best but prepared for the worst.
