Puzzles


There’s often a moment when you are navigating a relationship where you have to stop, regroup and decide what you truly want from the relationship.  Is it possible that you are trying to push a square peg into a round hole and that the frustrating nature of the relationship is perhaps a sign that there is something fundamentally wrong?

Relationships are like puzzles with pieces that fit together and belong.  Each piece is an important part of the whole.  Together they, quite simply, work.  The problem arises when we try to put two pieces together that don’t belong.  Perhaps they seem like a fit; perhaps the pieces maybe, kind-of do. Unfortunately, no matter how hard we try, try to make those seemingly compatible pieces fit, there comes a point when one must decide it’s time to concede - to let go and move on to another piece of the puzzle...or another relationship.  No doubt a difficult thing to recognize but even more difficult to actually do.  Sometimes no matter how hard you try, no matter how much you want it to fit, no matter how perfect it seems, there is no will strong enough to fit that square peg into that round hole.  Realizing this and yes, moving on is the first step towards finding the two pieces that truly do belong together.
