It is better to die fighting than living with guilt that you could have fought and won. Our limited life on this planet puts us in multiple scenarios where we can fight or escape taking sides on a personal or professional front.
Those who run away from regret for life while fighting even after losing live with peace.
Guilt is a disease and kills us slowly. It’s better to lose by trying rather than keep guilt for the life of not trying enough.
I have been part of many battles on a professional and personal front, lost gracefully. I have ensured living without any guilt.
