E = ENOUGH

There comes a point in everyone’s life where they have reached a certain limit and feel like they need to blow their lid or just go crazy. I know from experience what this scenario feels like and because of this, I would like to mention that it is okay to know when you have had enough of a certain situation, relationship or even a certain experience and take the necessary steps to prevent yourself from ever reaching your breaking point.

If someone has not been treating you the way you deserve to be treated, confront them, make a change to the situation. Be brave enough to admit to yourself that you may deserve better. If a job is wearing you out, try to take steps to make your situation better, if it still doesn’t help and it is possible, find another job that might make you happier. Do not be afraid to say that you have had enough. Admit it to yourself and try and take action against it and hopefully you will feel like there is a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. I had an 'enough' moment. It was scary to stand up and say it, but it's made everything else since that much, much better.

    I'm glad you were able to stand up and say it too :-)

  2. Excellent advice!

    It is scary to to say it, but it's important to be able to do it when needed.

  3. I've learned that there are phases in the cycle of change: confusion, hesitation, irritation, frustration, and finally you get to the breakthrough phase: "enough is enough." A lot of people move back and forth between frustration and irritation, before they're ready to act.

  4. Annalisa - I know that feeling. I had another enough moment at work with my new colleague and it was not pretty or nice, but it had to be done. Well done to you.

    M.J. - You are so right. If we don't draw a line, people will just keep on taking advantage.

    Myriteofpassage - So true, I know I do that. I keep things in for so long instead of saying something right away and I end up exploding and making things worse.

  5. Good advice. Except now I have Donna Summers and Barbra Streisand singing "Enough is Enough" in my head and they won't stop.

  7. Once was at a seminar that said that if you were clear enough about your own opinion, there would be less conflict, because once you saw things weren't suiting you, you'd #be out of there'. !

  8. This is so very true.
    I became a single parent after realizing if I didn't change something in 30 years I would be as bitter as my mother in law. I said 'ENOUGH' took the leap of faith that I could make it on my own. I have never regretted that decision
