Today I am thankful for the ability to move on. I have come to realize that arriving at the conclusion that it’s time to move on, be it from a relationship, a place of residence, a career path, or some other major situation in life, can certainly be a challenge depending on the circumstances. And even though reaching that conclusion can be substantially challenging, the difficulty involved in reaching that conclusion pales in comparison to the difficulty that generally accompanies taking the actual steps to move on.
Most people tend to arrive, at some point or another, at the conclusion that a given situation no longer serves them in a positive way and that it’s time to say goodbye to that situation, yet very few people, in the grand scheme of things, actually take the necessary steps to remove themselves from the situation. They may find themselves being held back by emotions, memories, expectations, or any combination thereof. Or they may lack sufficient motivation to leave that situation, motivation that would overshadow the fact that it may be easier to just stay in the situation despite the presence of clear indicators that the situation has run its course.
We have all been there. And we have all either made the choice to leave situations or stay in situations. For those of you who have decided to stay in situations that were unfavorable, what made you decide to stay? For those of you who have decided to leave situations that were unfavorable, what made you decide to leave? What fueled those choices for you? #lovebythedrop
