Questions of the No-Win Situation

What do you do when you can’t win?

What do you do when you know you can’t win?

What do you do when you go in thinking you can win, but learn in the middle of things that you can’t?

Do you keep fighting?  Do you keep fighting the losing battle on principle, trying to believe you’re fighting for something greater than yourself?

Do you call it a strange game, and decide that the only winning move is not to play?

Or do you decide that it’s better to burn out than to fade away?

What is to be gained by staying, and what is to be lost by leaving?

Will you seem petty if you quit?  Will you seem stubborn if you don’t?  And do you seek the approval of those that would call you such?

Can you rewind time to before you became trapped?  Can you take it all back as if it never was?

And what if you can neither win nor leave?  What if failure is inevitable?

How will you cope with loss when it comes?  How will you cope with loss before it comes?

Is the loss great?  Is the loss important to you?  Will the loss mar your record?

Do you blame others?  Do you blame yourself?  Do you blame God?

Does it even exist?  Is it just an excuse to give up when the going gets hard?  How can you tell when you can and when you can’t?

Which are right, and which are wrong?

{What is more important:  the question, or the answer?}
