There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you
this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don't want
you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you,
caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never
tied to anybody that left. The bible said that, they came out from us that it
might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no
doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19] People leave you
because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't
make them stay. Let them go. And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it
just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when
people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when it's dead. You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it.
