Bridges

Knowing when to say goodbye can be the hardest thing you’ll ever have to figure out. Right after realizing that you need to. And it’s tough, especially when you’ve invested yourself fully into someone. Understanding what it means to be without them can be painful even when you consider the pain of being with them.

The old cliché Don’t burn bridges comes to mind. In general, I agree with the philosophy of it. There are those relationships however that, maybe don’t warrant a burning down of the bridge, but rather a decommissioning. Because bridges left unattended can become unstable and dangerous to walk on, eliminating trust. And trust is crucial in traversing a bridge because if the bridge fails, the fall can be disastrous.
