Not all of life's trials are built alike. Not everything you turn your back on looks the same either.
Most of the time, it's simply self-preservation. Other times, it's a "trimming dead weight" kind of rationale.
But there comes a time when we have that one person in our lives that we need to decide if we're going to turn our backs on or not. When it comes to our own livelihood and survival, the path of least resistance would lead us to turn our backs. But you need to be sure you have all the information, all of the back story before you ultimately burn someone in your life and sometimes, someone you actually care about.
So choose who you turn your back on wisely: you really never know whose struggle you're making better...
...or maybe even worse.
