Sometimes, the moments when we feel we need to flee are really the moments we need to just stay still.

Sometimes, the moments when we struggle the most are the moments when we experience the most growth. And the moment that we’re about to give up is the usually the moment when the miracle is about to happen.

Instead, what I am suggesting is that we stay still for a bit before we immediately jump ship.

We’re so quick to respond, so quick to act, and so quick to react that we don’t really think of the long-term or the consequences of our actions. We don’t understand the virtue of patience.
