Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Anyone familiar with Adele should probably be very familiar with this line. If you are to be asked the same question, which one will you go for? In fact, when you find yourself thinking about the situation if it’s a win-win or win – lose thing, you could not really figure it out. And then you started to pretend not to care about the situation, but it then it does not work at all. And never will it. Sooner or later, you will realize that this should be dealt with. Otherwise, you will get stuck or worse than that, haunted by the thought of it.
In every relationship, there comes a point where you get clueless on what is happening. A point where your partner seems to turn its back on no any obvious reason at all.
If loving meant withdrawing the battle and you end up feeling that unbearable loneliness or sadness, you know the love was worth every penny of its price. And you know for a fact there shouldn’t be any regrets. But then, some disappointments remain, and are too numerous to be talked about.
If someone walks away for no apparent reason, I don’t think you should present yourself available when he comes back with any explanation.
Letting go is not always an attribute of weak but can also be a great feature of a strong character. It is not giving up. It only means that you have understood things beyond your control. There are times when you need to accept the fact that your partner made a choice and you have to make a choice too. If he chooses not to make you feel your worth and choose to echo the sounds of silence, what made you think chasing pavements will do well to the relationship? It may be the very last thing on your mind but things just have to be the way the way they are and it doesn’t favor your desires at all times.
When everything is blurred and you see that both of you is in the losing stream, it may be best to let go and stop chasing pavements.
If the pain has come, how we wish it will come so fast because we have a life to live and we should live it to the fullest. If you must make a choice, do so now. Don’t stay in the corner and ask the same question. Paulo Coelho said that to wait is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing what to do is the worst form of suffering.
Are you now going to give up or still keep chasing pavements?
