要走的,留不住。要留的,走不了。

I still remember my friend telling me this phrase many years ago while I’m still at polytechnic. “要走的,留不住。要留的,走不了。” (If the person want to leave, you can’t make her stay. If the person want to stay, you can’t make her leave.)

I always believe in this statement. And many times in life, I let this statement decide what the future will be like.

There is nothing I can do now. The decision is not with me. I know that nothing I say or do can change your mind once it is fixed. I give up trying to convince you to see from my point of view. I’m the optimist and you are the pessimist.

Am feeling unusually calm now. Perhaps because I know that there is nothing I can do now but wait.

So in the end, will you stay or leave?
