What do you do when a situation or an association deteriorates to a point where it is seemingly irreparable? I believe in keeping ‘hope alive.’ However, if you’re dealing with an irrational mind, it’s not easy. When further communication does nothing but aggravate the situation or give the person additional ammunition to escalate the battle, then it should become obvious that their real interest is simply to do battle with you and not to resolve anything and certainly not to live peaceably as God’s Word instructs to do. Let’s face it… some people just aren’t happy unless they have some type of continuous drama. Keep in mind also that some actually aren’t even playing with a “full deck” and really can’t help themselves. Between mental and serious emotional problems and extensive drug use, legal or illegal, it becomes almost impossible to reason with them. Seriously. Don’t get caught up in it because it will drain you physically and emotionally. It’s best to simply move on and continue to pray

After all, we’re not to called to wrestle against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12)–we’re not called to fight one another. “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses (Matt. 6:14-15).”
“And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him (Luke 17:4).” We are to forgive but I don’t believe you need to keep going around the same mountain. Yes, forgive continually but don’t continue to put yourself in the same situation. If, for example, you had $100 in your wallet and sat it down, went to the ladies room, and returned to find it was no longer there and only two of you were in the building, would you leave another $100 the next night and the next? All things being equal, I would hope not. You’ve compassed that mountain long enough… turn ye and go northward. Move it!
