don't bail.

if i were to pick a theme of what i am learning lately, spread out across all sorts of areas, these patterns i find woven into my life and my relationships, it would be this:

stick with something even
when it is difficult.


  1. But Sarah, what if there is something better?

  2. you're right. sometimes we cling to things simply because they are comfortable.

    but also there are these people who have abandonment issues, and sometimes they are so afraid they are going to be left by someone that they look for reasons to leave first--

    and that is bailing on something that could be good. really good. and if you flee intimacy all your life, you'll die lonely and without any meaningful relationships. and that is a tragedy, my friend.
