Safely Remove: A Relationship

Safely Remove an USB drive? Sure, that’s what people usually recommend. But do we really do that? We just pull the USB drive out and hope that it really doesn’t matter. But then, we end up with a crashed USB drive at some point. Don’t we?

That’s what sometimes happens to a relationship. You think that you are in love with someone, but then it doesn’t seem to work out somewhere down the line. And then you think, maybe I should just safely remove it from our life and everything will be alright. Well, I thought the same. But then we just end up pulling the plug and eventually with a faulty life…a corrupt soul, if I may. 

A different perspective, perhaps, linking an USB drive to life, but a striking analogy. Don’t you think?

Sure, you can try to restore the disk/soul. But it takes too much time and you eventually figure out its not worth it. You just learn to live with the loss.

What do you think? Come on, be a sport for once. Share you experience, your point of view.

  1. removing a relationship safely… is that even possible? how would you do that? i was in a long term relationship. we were happy once. it didn’t work out. we grew apart. i grew up faster than he did. i had a plan. i found myself. whilst trying to remove the relationship safely and slow it broke into thousand pieces. it became poison for me. i had to pull the plug. and i have to admit i do not feel bad about it. removing it safely and slowly can hurt more than just to pull the plug. you had the comparison with the USB drive. here’s another way to see it: a plaster. a sticking plaster. we have to admit it’s easier to just pull it off at once. fast. sure it does hurt as well. but afterwards we feel much better.
    removing a relationship from our lives is hard. and does it really matter if we do it quick and at once or if we be gentle and take our time? pain will be there anyway.
    i hope it doesn’t sound too bad. thanks for posting this. i love posts like this one. i love when it makes me think about things. makes me want to write a roman about it. inspires me.

    xo, grey.

    • I agree with you, Grey. Removing it safely just isn’t possible. An ideal situation, sure, but not a practical one. Plaster analogy makes much more sense, I guess. One just needs to have the courage to pull it off. Thanks you sharing your point of view. It really helps. Happy Blogging! Xo, Anish.

  2. You know when we’d get hurt as kids and the wounds start drying up. But some stupid voice in the back of our heads would tell us to scrape off the dried skin on top, maybe to see if the wound is completely healed or to see if we can take some more of the pain and inconvenience.
    Eventually, even after all that peeling and healing, the wound evens out. More often than not, the dried skin would reveal the fresher side of the wound underneath. Taking even longer to heal.
    The leg, arm or where ever the injury is, gets fixed; only sometimes leaving a faint scar. A scar, which serves as a mark in time but usually, is harmless. 🙂
