Shalom

Day 27 of 30

There are times in life when one has to put their foot down and say 'Enough is enough'. When the idea to persevere and hoping things will turn out better, is reduced to wishful thinking and will only cause more harm to oneself eventually

Like trying to salvage a relationship gone sour. Like trying to fit into a place where communication is like chicken and duck talk. Like trying to exercise your ideals where people rigidly stick to the status quo and any change is rocking the boat.

There is a time to bail out. It's not a sin.


The leaves have fallen
The long winter has come
A cold wind blows
And I long for home
The fire has stopped burning
The cinders cease to glow
I look back once more
And bid, Shalom

Peace and farewell.

its is day 27 of 30 already? time passes that quickly...

True true, i agree, there comes a point when one has to put the foot down and say, 'enough is enough'. Sometimes we care too much for other people's feeling and neglect our own. I'm still trying not to feel gulity whenever I turn down someone else's request and put what I need to do for myself first. Is that selfish? I dont know..

Wishful thinking is one thing
Hope is another
I guess we will never know when to stop until it's too late and well, when we do stop, it is often not pretty
