Sometimes the strength is in giving up ! #MondayMusings

Everyone goes through that difficult time in life, when you are just stuck. Stuck in a bad relationship, or in a wrong job, or in a bad company. We feel helpless and don’t know what to do. The truth is we all have choices. We only have to take that first step and choose to change the situation we are in. If we do not change the situation and just keep grumbling, it is not going to do us any good.

  • If you are constantly unhappy about being where you are, take a step forward. Change is difficult, but nothing is more worse, then being where you don’t want to be.
  • If you are stuck in a wrong job, invest in improving your profile. A small step would go long way in improving your confidence and who knows, may be the change is just lurking in the corner.
  • If you are in a bad relationship and you are constantly forcing the relationship, it probably isn’t worth it. Sometimes, you just have to move on for your own sake.

Always remember, the first step is the most difficult.

Let go !! How many times have we heard this. Yet, this is the most difficult thing for many of us. How many times, we keep going, put up the facade just to please others, just because what others will say? We jeopardize ourselves our physical and mental health just because we fear change. Sometimes the most difficult decisions are the easiest. Sometimes the strength is in giving up.

I was that person a few months before, afraid to move out of the workplace which was too stressful for me and not at all for the type of personality i am. The pandemic made me realize I didn’t want to be in the same position forever. I called it quits, and for the past few months, I am happy enjoying the bliss of family life, doing things I want to do, working towards improving my work profile. Yes, I was afraid to move out of the comfort of known, of the pay-package. But the decision was totally worth. I am no longer stressed over that what I can’t control. Most importantly I am happy.

  1. True. Sometimes that’s the hardest thing to do.


  2. Hi Ruchi, how true! Thank you for a great reminder. I don’t know if you do this but I still beat myself up if I ‘give up’. I’m getting better at realising the strength it takes to also let go though. Like you, I let go of my job over a year ago and it was the best decision 🙂


  3. Hello there
    Oh how true this is, not only in the big things of life but little ones also. I left a ‘group’ because of the attitude of some members towards others – it took me a while to make the decision, I thought I’d miss some of the social activities but In the end I was so glad I did so.

    1. Yes actually, that does happen all the time whether it’s big things or small.


  4. Hi Ruchi,
    You didn’t give up, you just let go that which was not serving you and it’s so very important to do that time and again in life:
    To allow the things that no longer serve a higher purpose to leave our lives.

    Wonderful post and I’m so glad you are happy in your current space.
    God speed!

      1. I just popped over her from a wp recommendation. I don’t know your situation but if you need some emotional reinforcement, read the very short Dervish tale “Fatima”. It’s pretty easy to find online.

  5. Sooooo agree!! Far too often people “power through” a bad situation instead of realizing the Universe is trying to show them it’s time for a change to get to something better!


  6. They say change is the only thing constant. I understand about being in that comfort zone, i take my time too but I guess we all have to ‘coz that is the only way forward
