When you are navigating humungus waves, you have no option but to hold on.
When the tide eases a little, but you’ve not yet reached shore, you dig deep to find a reason to hold on.
When you have reached shore, if you reach the shore, then you decide whether that reason for holding on is still valid.
For only then can you see clearly enough to make your own choices.
