Solid Reasons Why You Should not Give Up

“Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?”
 Haruki Murakami

Life is ever evolving; change is the only thing constant. When circumstances give you thousands of reasons to doubt your abilities and forget your dreams, DON’T GIVE UP.

The vision of the future might be blurry as you face huge obstacles, keep on trying and pushing.  You may not have all the answers to your questions but one day you will.

You may dread waking up and facing another difficult day but DON'T GIVE UP. Longfellow said, “Every person has a secret sorrow that the world knows not”. It can’t always be a rainy day; one day the sun will shine.

If you see nothing but failures and you are overwhelmed with your ability to succeed, DON'T GIVE UP. Think of the lesson of time- to everything there is a season; and a time to every purpose under heaven.

If you are drowning in sorrow, DON’T GIVE UP. Time and pain are relative. By allowing your soul to linger on the pain, you are inadvertently growing the wounds inside you. There is a ray of hope if you will start swimming on the surface. 

If your will is weakened by discouragement from others, DON’T GIVE UP. Ignore your naysayers and draw strength from within. It is only through deep introspection that you would realize, life is worth fighting for. Unless you are dead, there is no justifiable reason for you not to fight back.

Don’t drown in the sea of nonsensical thoughts. You are needed. You are wanted. Your life has a purpose.

The instinct to fight is within you.


  1. When you're fighting for a cause, a dream, or something greater than yourself you will find the enthusiasm, passion and joy that makes life a great adventure. The key is identifying your cause. Read 25 laws for doing the impossible to identify your cause.

  2. I love this and can relate to it in so may ways. I have felt like giving up on so many levels in life, but I just keep on going.

    1. I read your blog and it touched me so much beyond words could explain.

  3. Just keep swimming and keeping your head above water. That's all we can do to not drown. Always remember things that you should be grateful for and that'll pull you out of your funk. At least, it works for me.

    1. I know. It's hard at times but life is worth fighting for.

    I love the affirmation in this. Giving up should never be an option, there is always something to fight for!

    I really love this post, it short but very powerful. It also reminds me to continue to hold on and to fight most especially if there's a lot of people rely's on you.

    This is so true. Every single person has had their share of trials, some of which can literally knock you down into the throes of desperation. However, giving up is not the solution. We must always hang on to ou faith and give face these obstacles head on.

  7. I can imagine that there are situations where I think there is no way out - no way out off misery and dispair. I'm lucky having a very good, fulfilled, happy life - however, I find there are situations where life can bring you down.
