nie jou brood aan altwee kante gebotter he nie! kan
My girlfriends and I normally use this saying when one of us likes two guys and wants both. I’m normally the one that say: “Jy
nie jou brood aan altwee kante gebotter he nie.” This is the same as saying: “You can’t chase two rabbits at the same time.” You can’t have everything. kan
You can’t always manipulate things the way you want to, and sometimes everything can’t always go the way you want them to, it just can’t. Some things in life you can’t control, you just have to go with it…you know, go with the flow and take it one step at a time.
The same with tasks or assignments, you can only tackle one thing at a time. I know we all want to kill “twee vlieë met een klap”, but that just makes a mess. It is not like you can cut yourself into two halves and say: “YOU, left me, go get that rabbit!! And YOU, right me, go get the other rabbit.”
If you can manipulate and change things like you want to, great, good for you, do it. If you can’t, leave it and deal with it.
