“When you find no solution to a problem, it’s probably not a problem to be solved, but rather a truth to be accepted.” From curiano.com
At the end of the day, only you really know if you’ve exhausted every possibility for solving a problem. It often requires a great deal of strength to answer that question honestly, as many of us will give up before the end. There’s no judgement in this comment. Change your mindset and remind yourself that you did everything in your ability set. If you feel like you can’t live with giving in, remember that it’s not giving up to ask for help. Maybe you can’t solve it by yourself.
Why not look at giving up as sending a call for help up into the universe? Then you get to move onto the next phase of the solution search. It’s up to you how much help you choose to seek and use. The truth here is to remember that alone, we only can see and react to the world through our own experience, but with others sharing our journey, we gain the perspective of their life experiences as well. Accepting that you can’t solve a problem doesn’t mean you quit or are a failure, it simply means you can go on with help.
