On breaking up

I.
It is compassionate to let go
if hanging on leads to lifeless wounds

II.
The length of history is important
but not as important as the quality of future

III.
Walking away is not running away
if you faced the demons
and know they will remain

IV.
Do not shake the dust off your feet
but gently wipe your shoes and then wipe theirs:
walk away with compassion
