People Will Quit On You
So I want to talk to you guys today about how some people will quit on you. It is a message that we all need to hear because it is just a part of life. Sometimes it is going to happen when you do not expect it at all. There will probably be people in your life that you will be very close with and you will trust and they will pull the rug out from under you at a time that you are not prepared for. Now, some of you may have already experienced this, but there are probably a lot of you out there who are not prepared for this to happen. I do not mean to be a downer with this message but it is just a basic part of life. There will always be people that will quit on you for different reasons. Now when they do this in your life it is likely that you will be hurt by this, of course. There is no formula out there that is going to keep you from getting hurt at all, but I want to be absolutely clear on this: Just because people quit on you does not mean that there is something wrong with you.
I really want you guys to hear me on this point. Just because someone that you know walks out of your life does not mean that there is something wrong with you or even that it is your fault. If you start to push people away, of course that is a different story, but regardless of that there will be people that just quit on you. Now I know that that will hurt when it happens but I want to be clear on this. It is important to change our perspective when it comes to people quitting on us in our lives. You do not need to feel sad because they left you. If anything you should feel sorry for them that they lost a person that would have never quit on them. They lost a person that would have never turned their back on them. Understand that sometimes people will leave your life but sometimes it is just to show you that them leaving is what is best for you and your life.
Sometimes when people leave your life, it is just to make room for what is going to be right in your life. Trust me, it has happened to me before that I have lost people that I really cared about and did not want to lose, but it was their choice and eventually I was better off for it. Now I also want you guys to understand that just because you do not know it immediately, does not mean that what you are experiencing is not a gain. I have lost friends, teammates, and other people in my life and it ended up being a gain in my life. I just didn’t realize it right away because it hurt, and it sucked, but eventually I was better for it. So don’t get too hung up on the people that quit on you.
It all starts with you.
