Who would have thought that something or someone that we love so much can also bring so much suffering in return? Which begs the question when these moments happen --- should we quit or keep quiet?
We’ve all been there. We love something so much that we just can’t give up. So we learn to be quiet and endure all the pain. It can be a job, a friendship, a relationship or a life. We derive a form of happiness from it, but with it also comes a little spice. Some drama here and there or even questions that leaves us to doubt our decisions to ever choosing that in the first place.
Sometimes, it pays off and we keep on moving forward. There will be times that it will be bad again and then we are left with the same options. So maybe the real question here is --- when do we quit? When do we say that this suffering has to stop?
They say quitting is for losers. I say quitting is when to know what you really value in life. It doesn’t make you less of a person if you do and it doesn’t make you more if you didn’t. After all, there are some who didn’t quit and saw it through the end, but even then, there are incidences that they don’t feel fulfilled. Why? Because they have found out that they never valued what they won in the first place.
At the end of the day, it is about your willingness to spend your life’s fleeting moments to something that has value to you. So before you quit, ask yourself --- do you really value what this situation is giving you or is there another value greater than what you get from it? If it’s the second one, quit and seek that greater value immediately. Life doesn’t wait for people who wait for it to happen.
