Relationships make up the better part of our lives. Yes, relationships! Relationships don’t necessarily have to be intimate or romantic, we’ve been building relationships from the day we were born. Relationships with our parents, siblings and other people along the course of our lives.
We’ve made friends, we’ve lost friends. Maybe they pushed us away or we pushed them away. Regardless, it’s been a cycle of loss and gain. I believe pride, egos, insecurities, self-esteem have all played a part in this one way or the other. We might not want to admit it to ourselves or the parties involved but that doesn’t change the fact. Sometimes, we can let things go but we choose not to. We’d rather walk around with hurt and resentment for a person we know we still want in our lives just because we can’t bring ourselves to be the bigger person and iron things out.
