People love to say everything will be okay, but sometimes it's just not true. Sometimes you hit a brick-wall, a limit, a point of exhaustion, a boundary or your last straw. You may feel so strong and have every good intention, and yet still get mercilessly beaten-down and defeated. You just can't win them all, and when that time comes you will have to accept it. To not accept a defeat is to be defeated again and again without mercy. Sometimes mercy is simple acceptance. If you are exhausted or defeated, sometimes mercy is letting go.
