Cutting It Off

One thing about me is that I have a lot of patience. So much so that for years, I allowed people to step over me or take advantage of me because of it. Mind you, I still have that patience...but it is gone for two people in my life.

Wow, I was even surprised at that. I've never been in a (physical) fight in my life. It's easy for me to love and I can't say that I have any enemies that I know of. And I don't really 'dislike' people. But I guess I do now.

The first person in my life my patience has run out in a span of about 2 years. That's pretty fast considering the second person in my life. But he continues to make choices that hurts the people around him. It's got to a point where we just have to say, "No more".

For the other person in my life, a member of my close family....I've dealt with being "patient" with her for over 25 years. But it has come to this:

Cutting her off.

That's it. I've been patient. NO MORE!

There's only so much you can take. So much of a beating that you can endure. So much of the hurt that you can take. So much of watching others get hurt by her unwise decisions. I can't anymore. I'm too tired of dealing with it. For the sake of keeping the peace in my immediate family, I have to do this. For the sake of my safety because now she's threatened violence upon my person.

Either way, I will always love both of them

For these two individuals in my life, I've got to say, "Stop".

And for me, all I've got now is prayer.

What really gets me upset is the fact that these people have been offered more help than anybody we know. Yet, they always find ways to screw it up. it is dissapointing and extremely sad. I guess some people are destined for failure.

Maybe. There's a reason for everything.

I never thought I'd find myself not wanting to continue a relationship with these two individuals.

That's why it does hurt. Because I still love.
