How do you know?

How do you know that the path you have been travelling on for so long is now at a dead end?

How do you know that you are preventing yourself from being happy because you feel obligated to others?

How do you know when its time to say good bye to the past and hello to the future?

How do you know when its time to follow your head and not your heart?

How do you know if you are staying with someone for the right reasons?

How do you know that staying in a relationship is whats best for you?

How do you know if it is the other person causing all the sh1t and
How do you know its not really you?

HTF do you know????

The eternal questions. That my dear only you can answer and if you like me it's the hardest decision of your entire life and one you will only make when there is only one answer. It took me years and years to reach that point and even now when I KNOW I had to do it I still question myself and miss and mourn things. It is flucking hard man!!!

I don't think you always do... I for one always follow my heart... even when it causes me more pain...

I think one must examine the questions, find answers that fit comfortably and the parts that is not comfortable is where the issues lie usually.

There is no magic potion unfortunately.

The examined life is worth living I think.

Advice from a couple who has been through the tunnel and survived -

Lau: "Are you still happy?

Do you remember the good times?

When was the last time you smiled?

Does the thought of making the decision make you ache deep in your heart?

Are the sacrifices that you have made balanced with the other's sacrifices?

Have the words you long to hear coming from his heart been uttered?

If the answer to all these questions is no, the start your new life with your beautiful daughters."

Quin: "When you feel that you are in a rut, and the person just keeps putting you down, and never seems to help you get up and never gives you any motivation and never helps you in any sense, try separating yourself from the problem to make your decision with a clear head. If the support you need is still not forthcoming, your decision is made by them. If when they come that close to losing you and they still don't care, then you will know."

I don't know Tanya
If you haven't been happy for awhile and feel like it's time for a change, then I think the time is here. Life is too short to be unhappy. It can be taken away from you so quickly.

Plus a happy mom = happy children :)
