One word we don’t know how to quantify as it’s got no value.
Picture gotten from-Icouldn’tkeep
We don’t always know when to say “enough” that’s why we always choose to accept. Accept whatever it is that is thrown to us. We settle, we concur, we say “yes”, we agree, we follow, we depend on, we refuse to fight, we don’t think long term, we don’t assess , we just accept that it is enough.
Let’s talk about ourselves, the sort of relationships we build with other people. If we all begin to evaluate our priorities and name the things we really need and not want, the list would probably be precise and straight to the point as they are urgent and necessary to keep us moving on, opposed to our wants or bucket lists. The sad thing about doing the same with people is that we fail to weed. We get on with the unnecessary, prioritize the unwanted, keep the wanderers, do it all for the selfish and what not. We choose to hurt and allow ourselves to be ridden on. Our self-worth begin to mean nothing, weakness and lack of self confidence and respect starts to kick in. Not that we do not realize ourselves and these happenings when they do, but the zeal to fight and say “it’s enough” is not there.
People are different and I believe part of the reason why “enough” has got no value is due to the society we live in. Some people were born to accept, some were born into acceptance, some don’t even know what it means to fight back and others breed in them silence that kills and stings. You can’t say enough because you are probably thinking “what will people say” or maybe you are afraid of being alone or perhaps you feel voiceless. Remember that, saying “enough” can also be done by the way you carry yourself, the way you see and present yourself, the way you oppose short-term happiness, pride and what have you. Saying “enough” with your mouth is never enough until you put it to action.
Choose not to settle for what’s detrimental, choose your own happiness (long term), self-worth and respect over what could possibly not be enough for you. Choose you before them.
Would like to know if you’ve ever been in a situation you had to say “enough” to or even scenarios in which “enough” is not said and done enough. Tell me dear bloggers. Thank you.
