The Point Of No Return
There are a few things that have become very clear with the relationship work I have been engaged in recently, and one of these realisations is that sometimes a person is forced to make a decision to part not because it is absolutely true that there is no alternative but because they have convinced themselves/the behaviour of their partner forced them to believe there is no alternative.
Yet it is possible to see that even during those last few moments of the relationship's life, being at its most fragile as the person turns their back on their partner getting ready to walk away, they are actually still turning, in truth in slow motion, waiting without knowing for the word or the gesture that will have the truth, the honesty and the warmth that could stop them in their tracks, slow them down, and show them that their partner is genuinely still ready to fight for what they did not know they had until it was too late.
I'd like to think there is always hope.
It's just... is it really worth reaching the point where there is no alternative but just hope?
