Is it really over? Have you finished talking about it? Are you done with that phase of 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.
So many times when we say we are done talking about something, we bring it up again at another time. 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 no one to convince you, manipulate you or threaten you into staying in a situation that does not bring, love, joy and peace to your life. Remember: hurting people, hurt people and misery loves company.
This also applies to your past. If you have had a painful hurtful 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 stay there mentally and allow it to ruin you and rob you of enjoying the life God intended for you to live.
God has given us only one life to live and He has given us power, authority and free will to live our lives and enjoy it to the fullest. When you don’t put a period at the end of people, places and things whose seasons are over in your life, then you’re putting a coma. Which means you are just pausing for a moment and you will allow that misery to remain. Don’t do that to yourself. If it’s over, then it’s over. Put a period at the end.
