“One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder.”
Saw this quote, and it was so timely for me.
I have been wondering why I didn’t just walk away…my therapist told me that I was not capable of quitting…and by that she meant that I lacked the capacity to do just that. I am not built that way. But that is how I saw my dilemma…quit, or try harder.
Walk away…now that is a different thing. Because then you aren’t quitting anything. So from now on, one I am going to seek is to view situations thru this lense rather than the one that involves a value judgement called “quitting”.
And this way, I can always be me: resolute, firm, but yielded and surrendered in how I make my way to my various destinations…just like water.
