Life Tips

When is it finally time to say enough is enough?

by Kellie Strausser

When is it finally time to say enough is enough? Work, relationships, bad habits and endless other options cause unneeded stress in our lives. Obviously, there are things that cause stress that we can not avoid, such as illness and death, but anything else in our lives that is eating at our existence can be shoved out the front door.

Obviously, I have had personal issues with this topic, but I know there are more of you like me. There have to be. Every day the same drudgery and emptiness. Each day debating and hoping that something better will come of your life. The funny thing is, most of the time, it does not just happen (there are those lucky people who have things fall into their laps), but…usually, you have to make it happen and that is, like I said, the most difficult part.

I’ve recently been working in a specific line of work that I just hate. Everything in me screams NO! when I think about the work week and everything that needs to be done. It has never been something I have enjoyed or felt I had a natural ability for and just now in this 37th year of my life I am realizing that I have wasted so much time doing things that don’t make sense for me.

I’m back pedaling just to get through and forcing something into my life that doesn’t fit for me. If that doesn’t cause stress, I don’t know what does.

So here we have a choice to make. Do I stay because I want to do the responsible thing, because I don’t want to let anyone down, and because my loyalty should be so strong to this company?

Or do I for once in my life do what it takes to get me on a path that makes sense for me and my abilities and natural aptitudes? I think I am answering my own question. The latter makes more sense, now doesn’t it?

It’s your choice. YOUR choice what you do with your life. Don’t let anyone dictate or convince you otherwise, not even yourself. I’m trying my best not to let that happen, and I think I am on my way. Life is so fleeting. A blink of an eye. Doesn’t being happy make sense?
