Don’t Say It Isn’t Over

In life, there are many things that make us want to quit. For example, I quit music at the age of sixteen when I found out that I was just accomplishing my parents’ goals and not mine. Also, I declined going to the top University choice they wanted me to go to because if I did go, I would have to give up on my dream and follow their dream. Hence, why I decided to stay home for the first couple of years and go my own way in life. However, this situation is difficult because of the fact that I’m financially tied to them, and they won’t let me officially go on my own way. But that doesn’t mean my dream career isn’t over for me. The same thing goes in relationships of all sorts. There’s always something that makes you wanna say “I quit,” or “It’s over.” But is it really over? Or are you just hiding from the fact that you don’t want to face the curveballs that life hands at you? Say what you want, but unless you try to solve the problem, it’s technically not over. You’re just taking a break from the situation until you have the guts to face it again.

Don’t get me wrong, I hate confrontation like the next person, but if you’re going to quit something, at least have the decency to share the truth to one person. I’m not talking about if you want to quit your job for whatever reason, or quit your monthly subscription of Netflix, because you can do whatever the hell you want in those situations, but I’m talking about quiting something that involves more than one person. It’s especially harder when it involves multiple people in the situation, or it affects the way things work in an environment, however, just pull the bandaid off and let it be. Why let the pot stir to a point where it boils over and ruins everything? Get it over with and keep living life. Life isn’t worth losing sleep over something that doesn’t even involve you, but it does at the same time when you’re put in the middle of situations causing you to be the middleman of the problem.

If you just decide to give up or quit on somebody, or whatever relationship there is involving other people, that’s totally fine. That’s your problem you can deal with on your own time. But causing a ruckus in the process is not acceptable. Give your reason of why you’re quiting and let that be that. Hurting a village is worse than hurting one person. A single person can recover. A whole village however, may not.

But that doesn’t mean you should just give up and quit. Try your hardest to see how you can fix the situation. Or just politely take some time away from everything and work out your own inner problems before going back to the situation. Make sure your head and heart are in the right place before coming to a conclusion. When you are caught in the moment of serious situations, sometimes, your emotions and what you are feeling inside could deter your thoughts of thinking logically in the situation. I’m not saying that it’s wrong to feel two different things within yourself, however, make sure that when it is time to decide on that situation, that you have a clear mind so that there won’t be any regrets or rash decisions that occur.

However, you don’t need to reminisce on the bad moments forever. There is always a positive upside that you can take away from every experience that you go through. There is a purpose in everything in life. Whether you decide to make the best of any situation, is up to you. No one can control how you feel, unless you let them. No one can take away your happiness, unless you let them. No one can take away your pride, unless you let them. It’s time to take control of the situation that we all face in life: which is in fact, life itself. So before you say “It’s over,” just know that life will go on, and how you want to live the rest of life is up to you. You can either hold on to it and never let it go (which is really common for us girls, which is pretty petty if I do say so myself), or you can find the hidden positive within the negative and move on.
