What Are You Tolerating?

I am a big music fan and was listening to Maren Morris’ new song, “The Tree” this week. If you haven’t heard the song, it’s about staying too long in a situation. In this instance, I believe it was a relationship, but it got me thinking about what we tolerate in life, whether it’s in our careers or our life.

We stay in relationships, jobs or life situations where we are no longer happy many times because it’s comfortable, we feel stuck, societal pressure, we worry about what people will think, the list could go on. Eventually unless the situation improves drastically, we reach a breaking point.

I have been there. I have stayed in relationships and jobs longer than I should have because I had the hope that it would get better if I just gave it more time. I am not a proponent of just walking away and do believe that many times things can improve over time if both parties work at it, but I do think there is a point where we all need to consider whether staying in the situation is really serving us.

In my work as a certified coach, I have come across many people evaluating the question of whether they should stay or go. It’s usually been around their career but not always.

Sometimes the hardest part about making a change is getting the courage to do it and taking the first small step.

I will leave you with a quote from Tony Robbins that I love. “Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change.”

If you find yourself in this place of questioning whether you should stay or go, please feel free to reach out. Together, we can help you uncover the answers and figure out how to move forward.
