I never knew when to stop until recently. There’s something about the slow aging process or perhaps “general wisdom” that guides you to a point where battles can be lost without grief. This is knowing when to stop.
A dad’s mental clutter can inhibit this process. If you can shed these “battles”, which really are just normal everyday things not going your way, you start to see the world with great alacrity.
Simple has never felt so right. We all have struggles and issues, as a dad, I have plenty. But when I set them aside and allow myself to focus on what’s in front of me, my life just makes so much more sense.
A sign of the times? Perhaps. However, as the title states, knowing when to stop is a LIFE skill and I believe it comes only with pure life experience.
This topic came to me suddenly after I said this out loud with an ongoing “battle”. It just resonated with me as if someone important said it to me. If you’re not paying attention, you can miss these kernels of condensed and profound knowledge.
I hope this topic makes your feel a certain way, or even sparks a little introspection. I think it’s healthy to ask yourself these questions and approach yourself on these topics.
