Sometimes the greatest victories in our lives occur not when we persist – but when we give up.
We constantly hear the phrase “never give up!” – as if this one piece of advice will somehow make our lives better. But that is not necessarily true. Sometimes giving up is the best way to improve your life.
I mean, think about it. There are somethings that we should just give up on – things that will only drag us down and ruin us. Giving up is in itself a form of detachment. Attachment only leads to suffering – so detachment leads to peace. Therefore, by giving up, we sometimes come to our greatest victory – peace.
