I must be honest; I often will encourage many individuals to press on, push through, never quit and keep moving forward. But there are times when it is important to recognize when something has ended and is now beginning to drain you, affect you negatively and you must decide to end it and move in a different direction. Let’s take a moment to discuss, “When it’s time to move on.”
Perhaps you are like me, you have pushed through something and decided you would not easily quit just because something became difficult. But at some point, you began to feel and see warning signs that this is no longer something you should push or press on toward. I cannot stress this enough on how important it is to pay attention to when you can sense these warning signals.
I have learned this lesson unfortunately the hard way. I am someone who believes it’s important to give your 110 % to anything you do. I can remember being a part of something and really enjoying it so much in the beginning but there was something I felt regarding the leadership early on. Out of respect, I felt it necessary to continue there but warning signs increased as I began to see how it was impacting not only my health but my family too. It came time to release myself from this and it was amazing how free I felt when I did.
Now the lesson in all of this was that it took awhile to feel completely better. The leadership had a way of being very controlling and manipulating and it was important that I recognize what was truth and what was error. Removing myself from the situation, caused me to open my eyes to see differently and pay attention to future endeavors.
I do not believe you should compare every situation to one experience but rather learn from the experience and pay attention to warning signs to know when to leave something and not continue in it just because you feel obligated or coerced. I believe everything we do, should be done purely from your heart and genuine intentions. Otherwise, you must ask yourself why did I begin to do this and why am I still here involved in this?
Just as important it is in pushing through something and getting passed delays, disappointments, insecurities, miscalculations, etc.; so it is with knowing when to move on. It is not quitting to move on or end something. It is making a genuine decision to do what is right for you. If you genuinely experience warning signs and a lack of peace, please pay attention. This is such an important real-life lesson.
Thank you so much for taking moments with me. Share what you have had to move on from. How has it impacted you? Did you sense warning signs? Did you quickly pay attention? Are you good at recognizing when to push through and when it is time to move on? I love hearing from each of you.
