History Yelds to Instinct, Not the Other Way Around

Having a history together isn’t reason enough to have a future together.

For two people to thrive, there has to be more than just pile of memories. We have to know, in our hearts, that there is a rightness to the relationship.

That’s a key word, rightness. I remember at friend's wedding about three years back, the mother of the groom toasted to the “rightness” of the couple.

Sadly, I looked over at my date and saw nothing of the sort.

Plenty of history, not enough rightness.

Shortly thereafter, it ended. Abruptly. Hardest decision I’d made in years. But few years later, my dad told me something I’ll never forget

History yields to instinct, not the other way around.

It’s kind of like those public service announcements at the subway station, “If you see something, say something.”

Except this time it’s more serious.

I might change the wording to, “If you feel something – or in my case, if you feel nothing – say something.”

Otherwise you’re just winking in the dark.

Are you depending on history or instinct?
