In self defence training we often use the term BOGA. Back Off Get Away. Sometimes it means making the attacker back off, sometimes it means that you must back out of a bad situation coming your way.
Dear reader, please excuse the noisy writing, as I am very tired and mulling over a problem.
A dear friend is in such a situation. He loves a girl who is scared of loving him back. Scared of letting him in.
I’ve been there. One has to have very thick skin to love someone who keeps you at arm’s length. Its a lot of pain, effort and loneliness. It has its moments of beauty, and glimpses of incredible happiness. And that makes it so hard to let go.
Now he must choose.
My mind screaming BOGA! Yet its his choice.
The point… the point of all this. Point is, sometimes we should back off and get away, as fast as our legs can carry us. Maybe you are in such a situation too. If you are, back off, and get away! Some fights are worth fighting, yet most won’t be.
May you have the wisdom to know which you are facing, and the courage to do the right thing.
