If you’re tired of fighting, that’s fine. Just make sure you’re fighting for a good reason, make sure you have clear intentions, and make sure your priorities are in check. I think if you have a reason to fight always at the front of your mind, you’ll see that the fighting doesn’t last as long. (Notice that I didn’t say it gets easier, but I actually think the fights grow shorter.)
Personally, I’m exhausted. Not to get too personal, but since this is my blog I can write what I want, right? Well, I’m tired of investing in friendships that don’t grow. I don’t like this about myself, but I always start question whether or not a friendship was worth starting in the first place. I try my best to go out of my comfort zone for my friends to show that I care for them, but most of the time I feel as though it goes unnoticed. Maybe I’m not doing enough, but of course it’s scary to further invest into a relationship after it didn’t work for a long time.
The worst part is that the world encourages people like me to move on, and give up on friendships that don’t “work out”. (Whatever that really means.) The world would tell people like me that it’s stupid to keep fighting for friendships if they’re not “meant to be”.
Thankfully, I grew up in a home that was all about not giving a rip about the world has to say. The truth is that love and friendships aren’t supposed to make any sense. They’re supposed to be completely selfless and sacrificial.
God help me, because I’m super selfish.
I’m also tired of people letting the world distract them from what they really want. Stop feeding into the lies of the world and start fighting for what’s right. I can’t stress that enough. I hate fighting, I’m tired of fighting, but I’m really glad that I’m not stuck in a hopeless circle of lies.
