Sometimes in life reaching an intelligent decision doesn’t come easy. When we are faced with a dilemmatic situation to take a tough decision of when to burn a bridge and when not to burn it, it often happens that priority gets misplaced somewhere along the line. One bridge might be new to you while the other is one might seem too familiar to you. Nonetheless, it is of pivotal importance that you learn to never burn a bridge that brought you over, because you might need that same bridge just to get back across.
I thus disagree with the phrase that one should never burn bridges. All that matters is to know which one to burn and which one to keep alive. Also, remember never to bury yourself in a tunnel just because you wouldn’t be able to get out. This indicates that if something or someone is perilous to you, it is best to leave them and close all ways that lead you in that direction. In short, burn the bridge that will bury you in a tunnel from which you will not be able to escape. Look at life through the windshield, not the rear-view mirror because the hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which one to burn.
In order to have a sense of when to burn a bridge and when not to do so, one must know what to allow in his/her life and how to prioritize the components of their life. Burning bridges ensures that there is no way back to our previous ways. While burning a bridge may take one day at a time, make sure you have the Power to be who you want to be, plus the Power to do what you truly need to do. The bottom line is that once you have burnt a bridge, you have made a change that ensures there is no way back to the lanes of the previous mishaps of your life.
This is your life and it is you who has to make decisions, but while making your choice it is important for you to learn when to burn a bridge and when not to burn a bridge. Know that when you are taking an important decision, you are calling the shots and must take total control over your life. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone, you are stuck with the outcome of being in the dilemma of whether to burn a bridge or not to burn a bridge. You have to know the difference now or you are going to be stuck with the ‘Did I do something wrong?’ feeling forever. You have to be confident with your decision or you will bury yourself in a tunnel you wouldn’t be able to get out. So keep in mind that you ought to know when to burn a bridge and when not to burn a bridge and remember, never burn a bridge that brought you over because you never know when you might need the same bridge to cross over again.
