sometimes you just have to walk away. we all hate to fail, hate to give up, hate to give in. we love the challange of life and want to keep on until whatever we are trying to win has been overcome, vanquished, beaten, or won. but sometimes it just ain't going to happen and we need to learn to recognize those moments to learn how philosophically shrug and walk away with our pride intact and our dignity high.

if a relationship is coming to its end, instead of playing out long and complicated and potentially hurtful end games, learn the art of walking away. if it's dead, don't digging it up every five minutes to check if there's a pulse. it's dead, walk away.

you may want to get even - don't get mad, walk away. this is much better than getting even because it shows you have risen above whatever it is that is driving you crazy. and there can be no better way of getting even than to ignore something so completely it can be left behind.

letting go and walking away means you are exercising control and good decision-makin powers. you are making your choice rather than letting the situation control you.

The arts of when to let go and when to hang on, I don't know if I will ever master that.
