When You’ve Done Your Best, But Still…

At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and it’s not like you shouldn’t try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours will eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be. — Unknown

  1. When I was confronted with a job opportunity I wasn’t in good health. I need 1 month chemo and I would beb100% fit!
    But my employer did not allow it… To get healthy I would be 100%
    Then I got fired for not being able to give my best due to my sickness…

    Perfect world hey. Just another number in a big company I suppose

    “Stop…leave them along…walk away” is definately one of the options on the continuum of choices.

  3. Sharing some of your FB posts. “LIked” you. Thank you for making a difference.

  4. There is a line that you draw, beyond which no self-respecting adult should cross. But the line is objective and depends on each person’s tolerance and generosity.

  5. A helpful post, as I have from time to time felt guilty when I have felt it necessary to walk away from some I have tried to help. There is a strength to be gained in realising ones own limitations and accepting them.
