The Bigger Person
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Sometimes, well most of the time you have to be the "bigger" person in a situation. We never want to be wrong, we always want to fight. We never want to hear one another out, we always want to make our point. We never want to consider each others feelings, we always want to be right.

At some point you have to back down, throw your hands up and just let the other person take it! However, sometimes, we need to meet each other half way. We all have roles in a relationship, friendship but in order to have a 50/50 relationship there has to be a give and take kind of relationship.

One person can not always be the right one, and the other person can't always be the wrong one. Sometimes you have to really consider the other person's feelings, and try to understand just where they are coming from.

It's hard when people don't listen to you, our your heart. People that know you should know your intentions always. Things get complicated when feelings can't be put aside. people need each other, everybody needs someone to talk to, listen to them, vent to, cry to and just release all things without judgement.

It's hard to be the bigger person and relax with someone if you don't let your walls down. People tend to put these walls up when trust has been tested, or when someone has been hurt. Hard to get trust back until you trust yourself. Hard to forgive someone that has hurt your soul, and heart. I believe that all things can be regained if there is a true effort on both parts.

Effort meaning, doing what is needed to regain all things that were taken away, not feeling like your hurt is deeper than the other person. Putting all egos aside and just feeling how you feel, when you feel it. My experience with all things have been tough, but I realized that someone who can make you angry is worth the fight at the end of the day.

Each day is a new way to make things right, fix your mistakes, show someone you love them, and be true to whom you know you are. Each day is a new beginning, to let things go that you have been holding on to. To move on from things that are holding you down in some way, things that bring you no joy, love or happiness.
