Over the years, FOLLOW YOUR HEART is what determined the birth and outcome of most relationships. Funny as it sounds, this is what even the most educated and exposed people tell each other. Sadly, many still operate by the beating of their heart or some kind of instinct. It’s difficult to say how but the ardent supporters of this practice believe that the heart somehow finds a way to communicate the decision and course of action to be taken.
Blind as it seems, the practice has continued without a challenge or concerns over the inability of the heart to discharge such a task with a far-reaching effect. Many have died following their confused heart and many others are living in regrets, simply for following their supposed all knowing heart. Actually, our ignorant hearts didn’t ask for this, we did force such a burden on our poor hearts. Easily, we forget that literally the heart is incapable of reasoning and metaphorically the heart can see no wrong but chooses to see good in everyone; including the worst of the society. Today, many are in relationships that they have no business being in. Some are busy holding on to toxic relationships that have broken, bartered and shattered their lives. Yet, they’re still holding on to such a deathtrap simply because their heart says so. Even in situations that holding on does more damage than letting go, still the heart says don’t let go and the madness continues until the worst happens. At what point do we consider that it is the sole responsibility of the concerned party to know:
- WHEN TO ENTER A RELATIONSHIP AND HOLD ON
- WHEN TO GIVE UP A RELATIONSHIP AND LET GO
- THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN REACHING SUCH DECISIONS
The big question is:
- WILL YOU KNOW WHEN TO ENTER A RELATIONSHIP OR NOT?
- WILL YOU KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ON OR LET GO?
- HOW DO YOU REACH SUCH A DECISION?
- CAN YOU MUSTER THE COURAGE TO DO THE NEEDFUL?
- WHAT PREPARATIONS ARE NECESSARY?
These are just a few of the stresses that come with ending up in the wrong relationship, meanwhile at this point irreparable damages may have been done, sometimes leading to death and destruction of property.
WILL IT NOT BE BETTER TO AVOID TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS CAPABLE OF SUCH SAD OUTCOMES?
How do I make it clearer that claims such as “it is not my portion” and “my case is different” are nothing but wishful thinking, whereas the reality before us is that anything with a smoke is most likely to create a fire irrespective of our wishes and desires.
Why not find out what a smoke is? Why not find out how a smoke is formed? Why not find out the various forms of smoke? Why not learn the signs and how to identify a smoke? Will it not be better to avoid all forms of smoke as a measure of avoiding a fire? If smoke is inevitable, will it not be better to know how to categories smokes and know the requirements to put out the different sizes of fire created by the different categories of smoke? Will it not be better to find yourself a fire extinguisher and know the capacity of the fire extinguisher you have? If you know the details of the various categories of smoke out there, knowing the size and capacity of the fire extinguisher you have, will you not be safer and more comfortable if you properly choose the kind of smoke to deal with that you’re certain you’re capable of proper handling in the face of any eventuality? BE A KEEPER is simply about emotional quotient, it’ll help you improve on your decision making capacity. Remember, it’s your decision that determines your actions and inactions, and your actions and inactions will determine the outcome of the relationship with your chosen partner.
