Someone recently asked if loyalty or “the right thing” was more important. It was a pretty open question, but I answered the best that I could within the limited scope of the conversation. But, what I know now has me thinking even deeper regarding this comparison, since I have been dealing with it over the past few months. At times, my life was similar to some Dr. Suess type of scenario with Thing 1 and Thing 2, Alice in Wonderland with Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Romulus and Remus. So alike, but strangely different.
I started the above several weeks ago. It is still relevant today – still living in some kind of bizarro land and trying to learn to navigate these odd shores. Things that were the same for years are suddenly different. Relationships that were tried and true are over. All, believe it or not, these relationship splits were no fault of my own.
There must come a point in everyone’s life, I assume, where you evaluate where you are in the whole frame of your life and make the decisions. Do you want to continue in this, or do you want to just say “Thanks for the experience, but I will continue my journey without you.” To continue on my journey, I have had to let some important people in my life go. Why? Because of those forks in the road. My journey no longer includes them, but thanks for the time we shared and the lessons we learned.
