Sometimes we need to know when to abandon ship. It’s pointless to fight the unwinnable fight, expending a lot of energy we may need later. We can’t bail out when the hull has been breached and all we have is a Dixie Cup to do the bailing. When all is lost, all is lost and there is nothing that can be gained. There will be more battles to fight, that’s for sure, so conserve your energy. A wise man once said we can only reach something by letting go. Only a fool hangs on when the flag is being lowered. Maybe today wasn’t your day but maybe, just maybe, tomorrow will be. You had a bad day. Everyone does from time to time.
