No matter how hard we try. No matter how much we plead. There are people who are not meant to be with us. And there is nothing we can do about it.
How easy is to lose people! We lose them sometimes because of our insecurities, sometimes because of theirs.
Lose them because of unwanted misunderstandings, sometimes by letting out too much and at other times keeping too much inside. With risk comes responsibilities and without empathy everything is apathy.
Love is not easy. Life is not easy too
But the easiest thing to do is to give up
To give up on yourself, to give up on our relationships and to give up on people who meant the world to us.
This easiest thing is not as easy as it seems. We pay it with regret. With pain which shall keep stinging our hearts forever. And with a painful conscience guilty of curbing our own happiness. .
Hence it’s indeed in our hands. Whether to fight for our own happiness or to live with a burdened soul.
