Hang it up versus Hanging on


We all deal with different situations in our life that will have us asking ourselves- should I hang it up or should I just hang on?  My general belief is that in most situations, you should hang on; especially in those where you have invested lots of time and energy.  But perhaps that was my youthful naivety.  As I get older, and I suppose, a bit more cynical, I can look at some things and recognize or rather, rationalize that I should hang it up.  Basically, I should count my losses, be grateful for the experience, and keep it moving.

Am I wrong here?  A bit cynical?  At what point do you decide to hang it up as opposed to hanging on?

  1. Youthful naivety should never totally be lost, instead it should be supplemented by real life experience and skepticism. It’s all about balance in these sorts of things.

    Personally, if it’s worth hanging on to, I’d hang onto it. Life is too short to be letting good things go. It’s just a matter of determining whether or not “it” is good. You’re really the only one who can do that…

  2. Hell nah you ain’t wrong Erin! That’s how it should be; good for you!
