A lot of the times we know the rules, we know to stay within our boundaries and to not cross certain elements. We know to stick to the rules in a game, in a match, in a tournament.
Yet, why is it that we end up challenging the norm? Why is it that we always feel like the grass is greener on the other field?
Rhetorically we know the answer but that sense of hope still exists. It is inevitable to allow your imagination go wild but the truth is far from that.
Is it competitiveness? Pride? Stubbornness? Are those the factors that stop us from taking a step forward? Or is it that expected disappointment we fear?
From the beginning the rules were clear, if all has gone too out of control then terminating may not be a bad choice. Withdraw. A sign of giving up, but also a defence mechanism to protect yourself.
