Closing doors/Tueren schliessen

October 2018

I think that was one of my first blog events I took part. I think Rachel does other things now. But I need to research…

Sometimes you have to close the doors to people that have been very close to you. Either you have grown into different directions or you realise that they are not good for you and never have been but you just never realised it.

Depending on what kind of life and background you come from this can be very difficult and stressful. We are so trained in making everyone happy and/or are so trained in feeling guilty if we do not adhere to common habits or laws that we feel like something terrible will happen if we decide to take care of ourselves and do not to let others affect our happiness any more.

It hurts as well to close the door on nice memories we have with those people, to close the door on what we gained from them. It is sad to close the door on a part of our life that these people inherited.

But how does the saying go: For every closed door god opens another! And usually, it is a much brighter, bigger and better door than we expect.

Ich denke das war eines der ersten Blog events bei dem ich jemals mitgemacht habe. Ich denke Rachel macht jetzt andere Dinge aber ich muss das  mal nachfragen…

November 2011

Manchmal muessen wir die Tueren von Menschen, die uns einmal sehr nah waren, schliessen. Entweder haben wir uns in unterschiedliche Richtungen entwickelt oder diese Menschen sind nicht mehr gut fuer uns oder vielleicht waren sei es nie und wir haben das nur nie gesehen.

Abhaenig von welcher Art von Leben und Hintergrund wir herkommen kann das schwierig und stressig sein. Wir sind es gewohnt andere gluecklich zu machen oder fuehlen uns schuldig, weil wir nicht allgemeinen Gepflogenheiten folgen. Es kann sich so anfuehlen, als ob etwas schreckliches passieren wird, wenn wir beginnen fuer uns selber zu sorgen und nicht mehr unser Glueck von anderen abhaengig zu machen.

Es schmerzt auch, die Tueren vor den schoenen Erinnerungen, die wir mit diesen Menschen hatten, zu schliessen und auch was wir von Ihnen hatten. Es ist traurig die Tuer zu einem Teil unseres Lebens zu schliessen, den diese Menschen inne hatten.

Aber wie geht das Sprichwort: Fuer jede Tuer die sich schliesst oeffnet Gott eine neue! Und fuer gewoehnlich ist dies eine viel hellere, groessere und bessere Tuer als wir es erwarten!

  1. Shutting the door has been so hard for me at various times. We don’t want to, but we must. Thankfully, when we do (as you say) a new door/window opens and we experience something new and better. Thanks for participating in the study! 🙂 ❤

  2. Dear Rachel closing doors is really difficult for me as well but sometimes it just has to be and knowing another door/windows opens really helps.
