Don’t Give Up

Emotional level: 5

Mental level: 5

TODAY I LEARNED: One lightyear is the same as about 6 trillion miles.


Happy 2nd day of Fall! It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about our ability to keep moving forward. It’s important not to give up, no matter what. I’m not talking about the daily obstacles we run into everyday. Those are important to, but when I say give up, I’m referencing life itself. Continuing to live through pain, depression, and anxiety is an incredible thing for quite a few people.

It’s so tedious and difficult…but I promise it’s worth it. When they say all we can do is push through the now, they’re right. Because now is all we have and all we will ever have. The past is already gone and the future is yet to come, so be who you want to be right now.

It’s hard I know, believe me. Trying to be yourself and sometimes not even knowing who that is. Even pushing through a couple obstacles today was hard and I thought I was going to give up…but I stuck to it. I gave it my all and I came out at the end stronger than I was before…even though I didn’t want to do it to begin with.

I’m not saying you need to accomplish some great feat everyday. I’m just expressing that giving up, as tempting as it is, simply isn’t the option one anticipates. We have so much waiting for us around the corner. We don’t realize at the time that it’s going to get better because we can’t see past all the bullshit. But if we could break out of the lost cycle we end up in, we would see the better around the corner instead of having to just believe someone about it.

Breaking past that desire to stop it all doesn’t come easy. You have to really stick with the thought because the depression will gnaw at you. Meditate on it, learn it if you have to, but never forget it. Never forget that life IS worth fighting for and things are worth it in the end, the in between and all other parts of life.

Advice of the day: Be who you are and say exactly what you want. Don’t let others undermine how you feel and if they do, walk away. They’re not a part of your story if you don’t want to be. Most importantly, stay alive. Always choose to stay alive. Please. And if you ever need a friend or just a helping hand, I’m here for you, no matter who you are or what the circumstance may be.

Blessed Be )O(
