I used to think that life was an all or nothing game.ย  โฃ

โฃ

๐Ÿ“I either get 100% of what I asked for or I am leaving.โฃ

โฃ

๐Ÿ“If you donโ€™t agree with me, I will not speak with you anymore (and I will make you pay for it).โฃ

โฃ

Life (and maturity, that thing!) came to the rescue of my misguided behavior.โฃ

The challenge is about finding that โ€˜constantly movingโ€™ fine line where we feel content and achieved, without having had to โ€˜sacrificeโ€™ something substantial to us.โฃ

โฃ

Defining our values and integrity, owning our responsibilities and being accountable for our actions, thoughts and behaviors – are our signposts to that fine line.โฃ
