I am really working on this Brule for myself at this moment. This is how it often plays out in my life; A difficult relationship - I don't see any way through it so the solution is to end it. My thinking is usually that its unworkable, I've tried everything so it's time to part ways. Well, as a good friend recently put it, as long as there are people involved it's going to be messy.
Messy as in imperfect, some at times prone to acts of unreasonableness and unaware of their impact on others. That about sums up some things going on in my life right now. Of course there are relationships it's easier to walk away from then others. But I am reminded of the fact that sometimes (ok most of the time) the common denominator is me. So what is my role in letting it get to the point that I feel I have to walk away? Don't get me wrong, of course there are times it is fine to end things. They run it's natural course, distance, you have changed more than both parties are comfortable with and so on. I'm not talking about those examples. More, things are blowing up around you and you just can't take the stress or the drama anymore.
I have to accept that if I had better boundaries, practiced detachment better they would not have gotten so out of hand in the first place. So, I'm working on strengthening those muscles right now. It's okay not to step in every time or even every other time. Things can fail, people can disagree without me trying to make peace and the world will still be fine.
I am working on letting things play out, without my interference then I'm not in the center of the drama looking desperately for the exit. I'm imperfect and will probably need lots of practice but at least I am aware now. With awareness comes choice.
