There are times when enough is enough and there are times when enough is not good enough. And then there are those times when enough is too much.
I have in my life a dichotomy – on one hand I have someone with whom the enough is not enough scenario applies and on the other the when enough is too much. Is there ever a time in life when enough is just enough and we are happy and contented, or are we always looking for the more or less to balance out the equation? We have in our lives people who care too little and this can be a frustrating and agonising experience and then we have those who care too much which creates a claustrophobic, suffocating atmosphere from which we struggle to escape. Depending on which of the ‘enough’ situations we may find ourselves in, we look upon the other as being more ideal and we bounce backwards and forwards between the two. This in itself is ultimately soul destroying and the highs and lows come and go with alarming frequency until the only solution is to have neither.
Life is not about having what you want, but rather about wanting what you’ve got. And how many of us can truthfully say that we have cracked that one?
