However, I also believe that relationships can work if there is willingness to work at it from all parties involved. Here is where I get a bit tangled up. How long do you work at it? How long do you go through the same situations over and over again? Are their types of situations that you bi-pass and then others that are deal breakers? How are those determined? What about the impact to the others around? How does the reconciliation or dissolution impact them?
It's funny, that I ask and even as I list these questions and concerns, the truth is, it doesn't really matter to the person on the outside looking in. It's the person on the inside looking out that has to make these decisions regardless of the impact. While I used divorce as the base for the topic, this can be applied to any scenario, to a job change, a relocation, a divorce, even a marriage, whatever the situation is, it will always be the person inside looking out that will have to deal with the decisions most.
So why am I writing all of this, I am sharing this to get to two points… 1) As the person on the outside looking in, you have a perspective, and whatever the other person decides to do, respect it. 2) As the person on the inside looking out, you have a perspective as well, and whatever you decide to do, make sure you do it with all of the best information possible to help you make the decision, after all, you are the one that will have to live with your decision.
So what is the life empowered moment today… Big decisions require careful consideration. Consider carefully and then make the best decision that you can for you. And know that you can LIVE with the decision that you make.
