whatever

It's tempting:

in the face of resistance

repeated resistance,

complaints, problems layered over by complaints,

in that moment where it all settles, thickens into stagnation:

and frustration replaces everything,

it's more than tempting, it feels right to just go:

whatever

and walk away.

It seems easier

than staying.

It probably is easier than staying.

So, yeh — whatever.

And then what?

Where are you then?

What have you accomplished, teed-up, decided with that whatever? Because opting out is still a decision, it's a choice, a direction.

So, where are you headed with that whatever? In a line of how many

whatevers?
