"Never allow someone to be your PRIORITY while allowing yourself to be their OPTION"And it had me pondering over it. I'm thinking these might seem like just mere words but they carry a lot of meaning. I can think of several situations and so many ways I have given major IMPORTANCE to certain people who never gave me the same treatment back and I let it seem like it was okay. But how can it be okay for you to invest your time to make someone a priority whilst you are being treated as just a mere option, whenever it suited them? Exactly!!!
All of us, at times, will have people who leave our lives for one reason or another. Beyond family and the commitment of marriage, there are some relationships that are meant for just a SEASON. It may be something you weren’t expecting. You may not even understand it. But if you’ve played your part to walk in love and forgiveness, if you know in your heart you’ve done your best and given everything and that person doesn't TREAT you well, that’s when you have to trust that God knows who needs to be in your life.
One time, I heard somebody talk about the "gift of goodbye". It means when somebody chooses to leave, you may not realize it right away that they just did you a huge FAVOUR and sometimes even you, may choose to give someone that sort of gift or love yourself enough to gift yourself on behalf of that person hurting you. Maybe that person was holding you back. Maybe they were keeping you from spreading your wings. Maybe they weren’t a good INFLUENCE or just didn't appreciate you enough.
Whether its about your career or your relationships, you should never give anyone the POWER to play with your time or your emotions or even treat you any LESS than you treat them (Forget deserve) because we only deserve what we have EARNED. So if you have earned the right to be treated in a good dignified way but never get it, then perhaps its best to have some dignity and distance yourself for good.
'Goodbye' may seem a very painful way to SOLVE a problem but most times its necessary and ultimately for better, because you should never let anyone twist you into thinking you can't live without them.
Give the people who do not value and appreciate you, a fantastic gift....Give them The "GIFT of GOODBYE".
And while you're at it, never look back...because "goodbye" most times, opens another door for you to walk in to your DESTINY. A much better door to move into PRIORITY and create the next chapter of your life.
