Letting Go of That Which Does Not Serve Us
"You know, we’ve seen much conflict in the relationships today, but the people here are stating who or what they want. It gets me to thinking we often know what we want; we just don’t always know what’s best for us.  At least not initially.  
We are led by the heart, emotionally drawn and attached. Sometimes the relationship can be downright destructive. But we rationalize away the faults, blinded by this emotional dependency and we try and hang in, no matter how obvious it may seem to others that we ought to dump our mate. 
The truth is, whenever the senses are involved, what is most pleasurable or intense isn’t necessarily good. 
Life IS like a box of chocolates. No, you don’t always know what you’re gonna get.  But even if you did, and it’s exactly what you want and it tastes great, it doesn’t mean it’s good for you.
Sometimes you’re better off without it.”
—  Jerry Springer, “Caught Playing Dirty” Episode

Sometimes wisdom shows up in the darndest places!  Have a great week!
