When a relationship isn’t meant to be, it just isn’t said to be.
That’s a concept that a vast majority of us have to learn to stomach – no matter how hard it might be. Just because a relationship is off to a great start doesn’t mean that it’s going to be destined for a happy ending. It doesn’t work like that. There are just too many factors to take into consideration when determining the strength and longevity of a relationship. Sometimes, even when the love and effort are present, the relationship still fails to go all the way. And as sad as that might be to comprehend, it’s the truth – and we all have to come face to face with the truth if we want to be mature about it.
Relationships aren’t easy. Love isn’t easy. Don’t believe those who tell you that true love is always going to be easy. It’s not. But that’s okay. Nothing in life that is worth having ever comes easily. So you still have to make sure that you are exerting as much effort and commitment into your relationship as much as possible. Don’t be so quick to run away just because things get a little harsh. Don’t get discouraged only because things get real. In fact, the moment your relationship starts to go through a few speed bumps, that’s when you need to step up and double your efforts in your relationship. You need to fight for your love. Because if there’s one thing in this world that’s worth fighting for – it’s love. So always be willing to fight for your love.
But also be willing to walk away from love if it’s just not meant for you. You can’t be forcing yourself into situations that aren’t intended for you. Love isn’t something that you can push. It’s not something that you can manipulate. Love isn’t something that you can manifest out of thin air. Love comes for you when it wants to come. And if it’s not meant for you, it’s never going to work out. And that’s why it’s essential for you to recognize when your efforts are futile. It’s essential for you to understand when it’s time to call things quits – and there’s no shame in admitting when something has broken and you can’t fix it.
