“There’s only so many times you can allow someone to let you down before you will no longer tolerate being disappointed. When things go wrong between two people, something has got to give.
You get to the point where you get tired of being the only one trying to fix things, it’s not giving up, it’s realizing you had enough. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts.”
~Brigitte Nicole

    Thank you!! What a message delivered right on time. I am sitting here now, very upset about a few things. One being a friend continues to let me down time and time again. Once again though, they are not available. I am very disappointed in them because they continue to let me and this friendship down. I guess it is time to Let Go and do what is best for me.

    Goodbye friend…

    Love your site. As i sit here reading this, about to turn 49 in less than 15minutes, i so can relate to this from a marital point of view. 24 years of doing anything and everything for someone that only seems to care about themselves. What an eye opening read.

      Doris, you sound as though you are a very kind and loving person, that has wasted a great chunk of their life on someone that doesn’t deserve you. Well, you definitely DON’T deserve that person either. You should be allowed to live your life in the way that you want to, without any restrictions. Not merely to exist, but to live a life of YOUR choosing. Try and get some help from friends ( if you are allowed to have any ), family or a charity that can help with emotional / confidence setbacks. You don’t appear to be happy at all in your current situation. So make it your mission to make your 50th year YOURS. I really hope that you can find the help and strengh to change your life for the better.

    It’s true, but I think if it is a real friend then it is worth and help to understand each other more. It will consider as a test, if it’s easier to break down, it is not what a friend are for. There will have a way right for both, and how treasure the other side.

    This is especially hard when the person who is disappointing you is the one you love. I wish it didn’t hurt, but I guess that’s when you know you are doing the right thing for yourself. Thank you for this.

    I so totally agree~~ there is only so much we can “put up with” and then something has got to change. Usually it is “us” that do the changing~~moving forward, and with GOD on your side, anything is possible!!!

    This is probably the hardest lesson to learn in a relationship, friendship, and especially marriage. I’ve struggled with it, and I’ve known others who have as well. It’s hard to move forward when your still looking back at the past, but the past is such a hard thing to let go of. You’d much rather try your best to make things work and hope and pray they will, rather than realize it won’t work, and deal with the pain. Find support, open up to them, let them be there for you, and you will grow stronger and find something better.

    When someone close to you keeps doing hurtful things over and over again, with no remorse or acknowledgement of the action, that’s when you need to realize that no matter how many times you forgive them, they are not going to change. That’s when it’s okay to cut ties without feeling guilty about it. They may try to make you feel guilty, but that’s just more evidence of their narcissism and meanness. They need to hurt people because they get a temporary charge out it that makes them feel good. It has nothing to do with whether or not you deserve it. They will find someone else to hurt when you’re gone.

    This was just what I needed to hear. I’ve been stuck for 10 years and enough is enough. I loved him so much but my kids and I deserve to be happy for once. I thank God for giving me the strength to get through this and hope he can overcome his addiction .

    You have very rightly said, there are some tough situations in life when it comes for making the right decision. But we still have to take the steps even if it hurts some one.

    I actually learned we consider the truth for false and then we might reconsider it, but it’s too late.
