When is enough, enough? For some time now, giving people the benefit of the doubt and trusting in their word has proven to be less than lucrative. Staying centered has been tricky at best. I mean, you don’t want to lose faith in people, right? You want to trust that one’s word stands for something. You want to believe that the action of one is not the overall reflection of the whole. It tests the lines of patience, I must say.
Even with all that I have experienced, I am still bewildered by it all. So when is it ok to say enough? I personally have danced that line far more times than I care to say. Do you say enough at the first sign of trouble? Or at the one thousandth time? No real way to know for sure, for it varies for all. In my recent experience, five years plus was enough. I can’t help but wonder, why so long? Was it EGO? Was it the idea that I can change the situation or was it simply the lesson I needed was not yet complete? Whatever the reason at this very moment, on this very day, enough is now. So I play witness in this moment and I notice that peace has come. Satisfaction has settled in and the green light to the next step in my life has turned on. I turn back for a moment to see that it was all in its perfect time as I whisper thank you to an old friend. The key to all this is to never hold a grudge, but to find the blessing.
