Sometimes there’s no winning. That sucks, of course. Maybe it even hurts. But wallowing in the hopelessness of a losing situation is aimless.
Instead, exit. Take off the jersey, surrender the king, hang up the phone.
Unless your life is on the line, there will always be another opportunity to make better choices and avoid a lose – lose situation entirely.
Remember, it’s your own decisions which ultimately led you here – no matter where you are.
Your circumstances may well have limited the choices available to you, but it was your own action which put you where you are here and now.
Live with it, or change. It’s always up to you.
