Those are deep questions Pankaj. My article focuses on a more narrow aspect. We gravitate to those who don’t need us and feel indifference to those who are needy.
I won’t pretend to know the answer to the larger life questions like dealing with setbacks and giving up on a goal.
My own experience tells me each case is unique. We need to be committed to stick to something when faced with setbacks. But we also need to be honest with ourselves and flexible enough to adapt when circumstances dictate. It’s a delicate balancing act.
