Bridges of opportunity, or bridges that hold you back?

“I never wanted to set the world on fire. So I never had to burn any bridges behind me.”
— Dinah Shore
Bridges represent connecting you to opportunity, and represent your path.
The key in life is to find which bridges to burn, and to not burn.
Don’t keep yourself from opportunity, figure out what will serve your best interest and the interest of others, before you burn or keep a bridge.
Don’t keep yourself from opportunity by burning bridges out of emotion or thinking fast, ruining a job opportunity and so on.
Perhaps this is what Dinah Shore meant, “Never burn bridges. If it’s a faulty bridge then close it off and let it fall on its own”. Gregor Collins. To let it be and it will work itself out. But then there are toxic relationships and opportunities and so on, that is when you should burn a bridge to protect yourself and others: “Stop telling me not to burn bridges. Some bridges are meant to be burnt, some roads are never meant to be traveled again.”
― Steve Maraboli

This is also true, we use defense mechanisms. We need to learn boundaries and assertiveness to master this skill. “We build too many walls and not enough bridges”.

  1. I have a toxic relationship in my existence that I can’t always avoid. Although Dinah Shore’s words are worth TRYING to live up to, it can’t always be done.

  3. Hey,

    Paperback edition of my debut poetry collection “Swinging Sanity” is going to be published soon.

    As posts get lost in stampede on wordpress, I am preparing my email list to inform my readers about important updated related to my book(s).

    I don’t plan to do hard-core email marketing and spam your mailbox and will only be emailing you about availability and promotions that would be 3 to 4 times a year, max. Promise!

    Would you like me to add your e-mail address please?

    Thank you 🙂

  4. I used the following line the other day… after posting this month’s online magazine – build the bridge of friendship and they will come… my attempt of inviting others to join our fun! 👍😁
