While discussing relationship issues with a gentleman he brought up a very good analogy for hanging in when life gets tough. I’ll spare you the details of what this was specifically about, but he told me making decisions and giving up too quickly is like throwing away new shoes. My look of confusion most not be as common as i thought. This gentleman saw I had zigged when he zagged. He explained when you first put on me shoes they need to be broken in and can often be even painful the first few days. If you stick with then, however, they break in and become comfortable. Think of your job. How many jobs would you have quit if you had to decide after the first day? I know mine would at least double. So when life seems to be giving you lemons make sure you don’t just need time to turn them into lemonade. Need a reminder? Just look at your shoes.
