It’s time for Five-Minute Friday again! On Fridays, LisaJo gives writers a prompt to write on for five minutes straight. No corrections. Just straight-up raw writing. You can give it a try too!
LisaJo gave us the prompt: Fight
Fight is a big word. There are times when I think I have no fight left. There are times when I have to understand that the fight isn’t mine. That’s how I felt this past week. You see, I struggle with watching people that I care about getting the raw end of the deal. It’s even worse when they are okay with it. I want to shake them and scream at them. Then I have to remember that it isn’t my fight. If they wanted to change their lives, they could do it. It isn’t my fight and I have to let it go.
The problem is that I honestly can’t stand by and watch people self destruct so I have to stay away. I have to stop looking and stop being a part of it. I have to decide to love them from afar and ignore the choices they make. That’s extra hard when it’s someone you want to be close to.
