“We have to do or change … to edify our relationship, not break it down”

Now I get the word and its full meaning.  So many changes that I have to go through to edify myself resulting in an enlightened self.  It is time to put old ways behind and finally grow up.  I have been playing this game for too long that I have become one with the game.  Time to  move on to another chapter in life.  It is time to rectify my thoughts and actions or inactions.
