2. Walls and Doors
Have you ever spent a great deal of time and energy trying to change something or someone without much success? If you have, then you know that you can’t change everything. Coco Chanel expressed this fact perfectly when she emphasized, “Don’t spend time beating on a wall hoping it will transform into a door.” You have to know when to stop trying to make things or people change. You have to know when to move on. Moving on isn’t failure, it can be the wisest decision. It allows you to invest your time and energy in something worthwhile that will help you meet a goal or make you happy. No one can be happy trying to change something that won’t change, but they can be happy working toward a goal that is achievable.
