These two very similar expressions have different meanings and at times they can be quite confusing, I must say.
But I just wonder whether is giving in equal to giving up?
But remember, there are times when you just need to take a step back and protect yourself from getting hurt too deep. So deep that you can’t even feel the pain and take it by mistake that it is pleasure.
Stop getting yourself involved with friends that only see you when they need you and will be gone off whenever you need them.
Stop hoping that your family will understand what you actually have been keeping to yourself. They are used to the thought that you can absorb it all. No. You got feelings too. You can feel the anger, sadness, joy, everything. Sometimes you get mad too.
Stop thinking that you don’t deserve someone you truly love. You might have said that you will always be there and you have already proved your worth and promise. But they failed to see it. Stop and just stop as they are blinded by their needs.
Walk away, and if you need be, run. And let them be happy. If your presence has never been appreciated, then there is a possibility that they would not even notice your absence.
Protect yourself. Because you deserve to be treated better.
