Your most worthy opponent is you

I was riding on the subway today and the guy sitting next to me was wearing a T-Shirt that said:

“Your most worthy opponent is you”

It got me thinking to how true this statement is!

How many times we don’t do something because we think we can’t?

How many times a woman gets abused by her husband and chooses to stay because she thinks she can’t make it on her own and decides to leave after it’s too late?

How many times do people dream of doing great things and when the first obstacle comes they just quit?

How many times a mother stands and does nothing knowing that her child is being abused by someone close for fear of losing her partner?

How many times ……..

It makes me sick how humans are so weak sometimes.

For me, I let my opponent win when I don’t speak up when I know I need to. I hate myselfs guts afterwards. But I am working on it and getting much better :).

Do you remember a time when your opponent won?
