There are times in life when you reach a stalemate.

Things are going neither here nor there.

You are stuck.

Maybe it is within a relationship, or at work. It could be an argument with a friend or a landlord.

It could even be an internal issue, where you are almost battling with yourself and not able to make your mind up.

This is where an ultimatum could come into play.

That whole, “Right, either this, or that,” kind of choice, is sometimes the only way you can move forward in life.

Ultimatum – seems such a harsh word, but you probably use them so often, you don’t realise that you are doing it. To the kids ” Right, either you eat your broccoli or there’s no computer games tonight!”; to your partner “You drink that next beer, and there’ll be no nookie for you tonight!”.

Okay, so they are tame examples, but types of ultimatums.

The more serious ones, regarding a job, or a relationship, financial demands, live or die…. they are out there too.

Sometimes the only way to move forward in a situation is to issue an ultimatum, Or to be the one making the choice.

And often, the choice made may not be the one you were secretly hoping for, but once it’s done, there can be closure for that situation.

It can feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders…



See you tomorrow!

Living life with a chronic illness is definitely not easy. But I do my best to push through all the barriers this illness puts in front of me! In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
