Everyone needs to know when to cut their losses.
No matter personal or professional we all have losses that we all need to cut. It sometimes takes us getting our feelings and pride thrown up in our faces, but we need to have it thrown in our faces sooner than later.
In your professional lives if we keep an employee on staff for too long because we like them, we end up bleeding money on someone because we have blind hope that it will work out for the sake of our own pride, as well as the desire to see your employees succeed.
In our personal lives if you are not losing friends, you are not growing. True friends will understand your growth and will be only a phone call away. This is very true and it takes a lot of guts to realize this in our personal lives because our friends and personal interactions are what keeps us centered and bring us comfort.
If you have the same best friends for 10-20 years, you likely haven’t grown. Try to make yourself change and adapt. Change is necessary for growth, as a seed does not stay a seed.
