Standing on the edge of a dangerous cliff,
I try to determine how best to resist,
The urge to leap off now, ending it all,
As more pain results from such a great fall.
Not just for me, but my loved ones especially,
If I let this defeat me, who will respect me?
I see this grand vista, take a deep breath and start,
To find ways to bring this view home in my heart.

We all face tough moments at points in our lives, experiences that make us want to throw in the towel, whether this represents life itself, or our acceptance and subscription to a troubling relationship or situation, it’s a decision that you often can’t take back or come back from.
In these troubling times, we are usually not the only one who will be affected by such decisions, yet these impacts are furthest from our minds at the time. Even if this is the eventual chosen course of action, it is advisable to properly consider the entire potential pain that would be created, before choosing to jump (so to speak).
Rash, swift, emotional decisions rarely work out the way we had imagined they would, it is better to first regain your composure, look at the challenge from all angles, seek advice if possible, and see if there is a positive outcome or outlook you can take away from all of this.
Sometimes all that’s needed is a new way of viewing things, maybe drawing from the blessings, or having a more positive environment for discussions and exchanges between those concerned, learn from the lessons and make them count, either in the current situation, or whatever may come next, should that be your choice.
Love and Respect always,
