They say strong people don’t quit but what they don’t tell you is that the strongest people are those who know when to quit or let go. Somethings are just never meant to be and keep pushing on doesn’t make you strong it makes you miss on other opportunities at hand. Life gives us red flags everyday and we keep missing them because we pretend to be strong and keep holding on.
Take for instance marriage, because you don’t want society to see you in a certain way, or what your friends or family will think about you and therefore you hold onto that gruesome marriage, at the end of the day it’s you loosing, it’s you in pain and you come first, your happiness comes first.
Are you happy with your job, yes/no or you think if you hold on It will get any better, no it won’t because that is what you settled for and since there is nothing you can do about it therefore that’s the best you can get. Looking for better opportunities has never been a sign of weakness, instead it shows that you can not settle for less.
Letting go of friends is a big achievement they will gossip here and there but they will finally let go. In life we need people to support us, to teach us things that we have no clue about, to socialize with us, to correct us when in wrong but not to bring us down, if you have friends who constantly bring you down in any way, you need to know when to let go of such friends.
If you are in a situation and you sure know that you have the power to change it , then go ahead and change it. Life moves everyday, day by day something new comes up and the old gets down you cannot live in the same situation everyday, otherwise you will never see yourself develop.
When it comes to school the situation is the same. I have a younger brother who joined university to study a degree in pharmacy studies, 1 year later and he couldn’t take it anymore all he did was to struggle with books and lectures and he knew it was time to give up when he couldn’t take it anymore. Lucky for him it was still early and he changed to Medicine. 5 years down the road now and he is a great doctor.
I just thought I would share with you a few things, been there and I’ve lived it all…..
