Turning the Table
Turn the table is a term used most frequently used in the restaurant industry as the act of moving from one set of customers to another on the same table. They need to turn the table as in how many times they can service the table with new customers.
You also can turn the table in your own life. Sometimes you have to just to turn the table and move on even if you haven’t come to a conclusion or closure in your relationship or career. It can be a difficult decision to make because so often you want some type of closure and there just isn’t one coming.
It’s the times when you stay in a relationship hoping that things will change for the better or the career path you’re on just isn’t panning out. Most often when people look back at those times they wished they would have made the decision to move on a lot sooner. Fear of the unknown is what keeps a person hanging on.
There are so many ways to say it, move on, get over it, get out while you still can and turning table is just another way. When the taste for the endeavor already leaves a sour taste in your mouth you should have already turned the table otherwise you just end up building up resentment. And who do you have to blame for that, yourself for not moving on sooner?
Are you in a situation like that now? Trust your gut feelings and do what’s best for you. It’s the only way you’ll feel good about yourself.
