Admitting Defeat Doesn't Have To Be Negative

Sometimes, it's more important to admit defeat for the sake of your health and wellbeing. But, it doesn't always have to be a negative thing!! I am currently studying a dual bachelor's degree at University.. it, along with my family life and my recent sporting endeavours keep me VERY busy outside of work hours. I was averaging about 4-5 hours of sleep per night, and I felt like I was only doing everything at about 50% capacity, but I was determined to succeed. So I made the decision to admit defeat and cut back my study to part time for a little while, and make a few changes around the house, with dedicated family time. Well, it turned out to be the best decision I ever made! I received a High distinction for one of my assignments, and I'm able to be a better version of me. I'm happier, more relaxed, and able to be more assertive with my needs and goals. So sometimes, it can work out for the best! Have you ever admitted defeat and then realised it was the best decision that you've ever made?
