Hey, cyberspace. So, today’s all about standing your ground once you’ve made your mind up about something. You know, when it’s clear that you need to take your own stand in a situation that seems beyond your control but really isn’t. You can choose to stick around and agonise over whatever it is, or you can choose to shrug it off and let it be. Similar to letting go, yet different in its own way.
At some point you have to ask yourself, “Is it worth it fighting to regain what you’ve lost if you’re the only one fighting?” In other words, if you’re the only one who perceives a loss, chances are you’re also the only one bothered by it, and so you’re just working yourself up for nothing. I think you’ll find such circumstances fruitless exercises, no? I mean, why set yourself up for inevitable disappointments, right? “Because you care”? “Because it matters”? Sure it does, but no else sees it that way. Just you. You may not be able to control your emotions, but you can definitely control your actions.
So you can decide to wallow in misery and discontent while curled up in the foetal position, or to stand tall and spare yourself the hassle. Your call. Which’ll it be?
