‘The minute you think of giving up, think of the reason why you held so long” Quote
Life is full of ups and downs.. This is exactly what makes life worthwhile living.. Once a friend of mine told me that if lit weren’t for the so called “downs” in life, we will never learn to truly appreciate and value the “ups” that we come across. In simple its these bad times that make us really feel how wonderful life is when the good things happen.
However when the worse (in my case worsest) happens to us, we always tend to think “why me?” “what have I done to deserve this?” and we tend to give up, we never see tend to see the “big picture”.
Its mostly the bad experiences in life that makes a person strong, teach him/her to face the worst fears and to get back up. Through my personal experience I know that if it weren’t for those dark moments in the past, I would not be who I am today.
We learn by seeing what happens to others, but what better way is there, than learning from your experience. You can either live life safely, that is to take a straight path with out any barriers or a path that you make for yourself. This can be very tough and at times you will really feel like giving up (believe me when say that I have felt like that countless number of times).
Giving up is easy, holding on is difficult. It takes a lot of determination and courage to not to give up, but to keep fighting. The way I see, the most common cause of suicide is because they give up on life. But if they had the patience to hold on for a bit more, surely they would have seen the sunshine through the dark clouds.
Always remember that today is the tomorrow, that you were grieving about yesterday.
