And Light

Sometimes it's like we walk around with the shadows of our past relationships hanging over us, setting us up to fear things that haven't even happened yet, somehow inviting them to happen so that we can be proved right.

Maybe we need to remember some of the good things we got out of those relationships instead of focussing so hard on the "bad" things.

My past relationships have taught me so much that I need to remember.

I also like to think that each one that ends is bringing me that much closer to the one that won't.

Shadows aren't dark without the light. It just takes time, sometimes, and distance, to remember and see.

I totally agree. Past relationships can totally make you realize what you want, and what you don't. Mistakes are great to learn from.

You're completely right. What's the point of a relationship if you don't take something away from it? If it doesn't make me grow and change, I don't want it :)

I have SUCH a hard time thinking about anything except the negative and how stupid I was to ignore the red flags. At some point I need to forgive myself and acknowlege the positive things. Why is it so hard?

I know exactly what you mean. I don't know why it has to be so hard. Maybe it just work? To help? So we'll learn?

Sigh. : )

Perspective is probably the most difficult thing to obtain, and nobody bloody tells you, do they...

You're very right. But it's not easy to not just focus on the negatives...Learning from one's past mistakes is a very hard way of learning.
