“The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride”. (Eccl. 7:8)
Is it really over? Have you finished talking about it? Are you done with that chapter in your life? If the answer is yes, then put a period at the end of it. If it’s over, then it’s over. Stop going back there and reliving it. "Whatever you feed will grow."
So many times when we say we are done talking about something; we bring it up again and again. If you have made your point in a conversation and you have clearly presented it where you know the other person heard you loud and clear, then put a period at the end of that point and move on to something else.
If you say you are done with a toxic relationship and you know that person is not good for your life, so you pack up and leave, don’t go back. If you say you’re done, be done! Don’t allow anyone to convince you, manipulate you or threaten you into staying in a situation that does not add, love, joy and peace to your life.
Remember: hurting people, hurt people and misery loves company, but don't you be the invited guest.
This also applies to your past. If you have had a painful past and you want to move on, then put a period at the end of it. Stop thinking about it and allowing it to affect your present life. If you can’t move on from it, pray and ask God to help you, talk to a trusted friend, or get some professional help. But whatever you do, don’t get stuck there and allow that picture or event to play over and over in your mind.
God has given us only one life to live. He has also given us power, authority and free will to live our life and enjoy it to the fullest. When you don’t put a period at the end of people, places and things whose seasons is over in your life, then you’re putting a coma. Which means you are just pausing for a moment and you are going back to it later. Don’t do that to yourself. Be assured in your mind, if it’s over, then it’s over. Put a period at the end and start fresh creating the life you want to live.
