When you are tired of an exchange – with a colleague, your partner, a friend, your kid – it’s ok to be the one stopping it.
We always want to win, but sometimes, oftentimes, sending the ball back to the opposite side of the court is just not worth it. Grab the ball, say that you are sorry, and move on.
Almost nothing in life is a battle with winners and losers. Renouncing is a viable option.
