Nowhere Left to Fall

Most people have one person that they tend to run to every time they need someone to lean on, but what happens when that person is no longer around?

Nowhere Left to Fall

I feel I've hit a brick wall,
Nowhere left to fall,
You're the one I used to call,
But this time you've dropped the last ball.

You told me what you thought I wanted to hear,
But it came nothing near,
Because all I wanted was the truth,
Instead all you gave me was abuse.

Watching you self-destruct,
Especially so abrupt,
Is something I can't stand to see,
So watch as I walk away,
And please don't follow me,
And I hope one day you find who you're meant to be.

Unfortunately some people can't always see what they are doing to themselves. No matter how much you try to help them realize this, sometimes they won't. It's important to understand they need space and in time they will hopefully see what is happening. As hard as it can be, the best thing you can do for yourself is to remove yourself from this person's life completely.

So much truth here!! We can only help those who want our help. And people will only grow and change when they are ready. Sometimes we have to leave people to go on their own paths. Sad, hard, and very necessary.

People come and go in our lives for different reasons. Letting go is usually harder than on one than the other. Good insight.
