Time To Give Up

I am hoping you might know Richard Bach, he, being an American like you. In case you don't, he authored the 70's bestseller, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions: The Adventures of the Reluctant Messiah. I am sure you already read both, if not one of these books. Again if for some reason or another, you weren't able to read any of them because you were busy with extra-curricular activities when you were in highschool, let me tell you that from one of those books, the famous quote... “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were.” was lifted.

I really do not know if I need to explain to you these words or not. Dude, they are so freaking simple and easy to understand that you can swallow them verbatim, take them as they are. No hidden meanings, no underlying implications and message. This quote is a no brainer and you do not need to burn even a few neurons to fathom the essence of it. Obviously the other person wanted to restore normalcy rationality and sanity in life, can't you get it? Somebody from your past bid you farewell and never came back and I reckon you have to accept and live with that fact. The person NEVER became yours, ever. Sure, you had your share of good times together but can you not dig it, those are passe already, those are things of the past and mind you we all should not live under the shadows of our past, be it good or not.

A true gentleman humbly accepts defeat. A true gentleman knows when to back off and let others have a normal, peaceful and quiet life. A true gentleman is not deceitful and treacherous, doesn't offer his shoulder to cry only to grab the opportunity to later on satisfy his lust for worldly things! That's not a mark of a true gentleman and I seriously believe you are way too far from being one, even if you die trying to be one. Oh, by the way, I almost forgot....

Your time is up, next victim please....
