When the fact that beating a dead horse is futile eventually sinks in, we would eventually learn to move forward and leave futile attempts at a relationship behind.

When it actually dawns upon us that our attempts at conversation and connection are unwelcome, we should eventually recognize a lost cause for what it is.

We might not move forward immediately but this realization is crucial, it plants the seed for eventually being able to leave an inert situation behind.
