This is easy. ” I never give up.” – Janice Tindle
For me, giving up just isn’t an option. I posted this on my LinkedIn profile. It’s something that I say to myself daily. Why? Because it’s easy to WANT to give up. Especially when things look hopeless and you may be in a lot of pain. When others give up on you. When you’re told you have an incurable condition. When you’re left behind. When it looks like the whole world has forgotten about you. When you feel that that you are out of options.
You’re not. And suicide is NEVER an option. When you think suicide IS an option, then that is your brain telling you that it’s looking for a way out, and because there’s doesn’t seem to be one, it makes one in the form of a suicide thought. That’s a message from your brain to get help and find another way. At least that’s what I think.
Even though I get depressed, I’m still an optimistic person with a strong spirit. I believe that I don’t know everything and that the people I’m getting advice from don’t know EVERYTHING, no one possibly can, only God knows everything. And He can always make it way out, so, I ask Him to do that for me, and He must, because I’m still here, fighting the good fight.
It’s okay to rest, regroup, recoil and re-evaluate, but, don’t ever give up. Ever.
This is how I think, because tomorrow might bring a solution and tomorrow may give you what you have been waiting for your whole life, so, be patient and wait.
