Turning our backs

The hard part is knowing when it’s time to turn your back on something or someone. There are two trains of thought here. Understanding what we’re turning our backs on and when it is time to give up.

If it’s someone we’re struggling with and they’re continually making us stressed, then it is right to walk away. However, much we try to help others, unless they want our help, they may not accept help. Not …
