There are times when we find ourselves stuck in such a rut that we’d do just about anything to get out of it. We’d do anything for a change. Unfortunately, this desperation can make us blindly run toward things that make us worse off than we already are.
This anonymous quote reminds us to not go back to less just because we’re too impatient to wait for more.
However, sometimes our mental health is at stake due to our current situation. As a result, we welcome any change, even if it means going back to less. While it may be best to do so for the sake of our mental wellbeing, we should always ask ourselves whether we’re going back to less simply because we’re too impatient to wait for more. We should also always keep in mind the two likely possibilities with this option. First, we may find ourselves, yet again, looking for a way out; and second, we may realize we’re even further from where we want to be.
