According to wikipedia, the point of no return: « is the point beyond which one must continue on one’s course of action because turning back is physically impossible, prohibitively expensive, or dangerous. »
For me, the point of no return is not only the action that you can never play again, it’s more the moment when you realize that all your life will be upset. There are several examples, such as when you learn that you have been pregnant for more than 3 months and that it wasn’t necessarily desire. The moment you learn that your boyfriend is deceiving you. The point of no return is not always fatalistic. You can also take the example of a contract. Once the contract is signed, you can’t go back. But most of the time when the expression “point of no return” is used, it always evokes sadness and the end of the world.
I wanted to discuss today the point of no return for the simple reason that I am afraid to face it in a future. There are people who can be forgiven for everything, like grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters, best friends. I often ask myself until or at least until when our love is strong enough to face everything?
A few months ago, my father told me he was engaged. So far nothing very annoying, except that his “fiancée” at only 4 years older than me … is already less shining. You have to add up to that, I’ve only seen her 3 times in my life. It doesn’t seem to be a problem for my father that I didn’t know her. Since then, when I arrived in New York, he made allusions to the children, to his future children. Yesterday, he sent me a message that he would come to the United States to announce something that he wasn’t said on the phone. I think this “something” is a human being called a fetus. My father is a very unusual person, he is well known in Europe, which can make me think that a woman can marry him for bad reasons. Learning that he is going to have a child with such a young woman is my point of no return. It is the moment when his life is no longer connected to mine and where his choices are no longer in harmony with my values. In my case, the best solution I have found and that I intend to apply is to no longer be part of his life in any form. Is it a selfish choice? surely.
But ask you that it is your point of no return? Especially when it’s the others who make choices that affects you? Are you a viewer or an actor?
Finally, I think the point of no return determines who you want to be.
