What You Don't Want To Do: Commitment When You Want to Quit




Sometimes I feel like throwing in the towel. I'm beat down. I feel like I've done everything I can do, and yet it isn't enough.  So I want to quit.

Maybe you wouldn't blame me for quitting. Maybe if you knew how hard I've tried, you'd understand and you'd say that it was okay. No one would think less of me for walking away.

No one but me.  Because I would know. I would know that I walked away. I would know that quitting wasn't being the person that I wanted to be. Maybe I wouldn't fail you. But it would be failing me. It would be not being the girl I want to become.

and so instead of walking away from what I want to quit, I pick the towel back up. And I don't quit. and I stay. And I persevere. Not because you deserve it, but because I do.
