There was a loud clunk and in the blink of an eye, everything came to a sudden halt. I knew it was only a matter of time. There were warning signs. But I chose to ignore them. I took for granted that everything would continue to run smoothly until I felt like dealing with the issues, in spite of the forewarnings. And now, just like that, my car is sitting stranded in a parking lot a few blocks from home.
I can’t help but feel like this is a metaphor for life. And not just my life. How many of us ignore the warning signs in our relationships? We think “it can’t happen to me” “our bond is unbreakable” “things like that don’t happen to couples like us” I’m here to tell you that every single human connection is fragile. You’re a fool if you think otherwise.
The brakes seized up on my car. Like I said, I clearly had ample warning but I chose to ignore the signs. Had I maintained my vehicle, everything would still be running smoothly. Don’t make the same mistakes I’ve made with my car in your relationships. Regularly work on yourself, continue to grow and better yourself so that everything continues to run smoothly. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 💙
