On breaking up

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

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

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

Do not shake the dust off your feet
but gently wipe your shoes, then wipe theirs:
Walk away with compassion
