Choice, Chance, Change


She desperately wanted it to work… their relationship, that is.

But the more she tried, the more it fell apart.

She didn’t know why she was clinging so fiercely to this dead-end-relationship.

She didn’t know why she kept running back to him when she needed to walk away.

May be the hope that things would change for good, some day.

May be… yes, may be…

Today, after a decade, she wished she knew then what she knew now that some things never change.

And that she must make a choice to take a chance or her life will never change.

    • Yeah, sometimes, wish it was clear from the very beginning. But I guess, we do realize, sooner or later if something is good or bad for us! Thanks Shalini. πŸ™‚

  1. I have been in dead end relationships like that and wished I would have known ahead of time so I wouldn’t have had to wasted my time and went through the heartache. Oh well, you live and learn. Nice take on the prompt! β™₯

    • Oh yes, we learn from our experiences, some are painful lessons while some are priceless lessons! Hugs to you, Kathy! You are so strong! β™₯

    • Somebody said, ‘in reality, hope is the worst of all evils, because it prolongs man’s torments’. And it is sooo true! Thank you Stephanie. Glad you liked this attempt!

  2. A tough one! When do we say enough is enough and move on, when is the right time to make that big change…not easy questions, for sure. Especially when it is a long relationship. But sometimes the voice from the inside is so sure, then there is no stopping, no looking back. It is time to move ahead.
    A very good post, Shilpa!

  3. Sometimes, walking away is much harder than we expect. How much we need to let go of the hurt and the pain and the dashed hopes. But when we do, we can emerge stronger and happier. Beautifully done in 100 words, Shilpa. But then, you’re a pro, aren’t you? πŸ™‚

    • True that. Leaving the past and present behind and moving on in the new direction is truly a tough decision for most. But yes, as you rightly said, if we do take the step in that direction, our life could change, forever! Thank you, Shailaja. You are too generous πŸ™‚

    • Oh yes, it is a story of so many people around us… living in hopeless situations with that eternal flame of hope, burning strong…!!
