Want to give up on life? These 5 Ways Can Prevent You From Doing So
Life is the reflection of our own thinking and reactions, we often have heard this phrase, but not everyone keeps it remember. That is the reason “giving up” still exists in our lives, whereas it should not. Because no obstacle is as big as our dreams, but unfortunately, we overestimate the hurdles and underestimate our strength.
As the result, the feeling of giving up arises and we forget our value and the purpose for living, because we are so occupied in just demoralizing ourselves and giving more attention to life’s hard challenges.
It’s normal for wanting to give up at times because we humans always expect the frequent positive outcome, and when the expected outcome doesn’t come up, a feeling of being defeated and being unvalued brings up in mind, and this badly triggers the feeling of giving up.
Why We Should Completely Discard the Option Of “Giving Up”?
“Giving up” should not be on our options list, but whenever the situation compelled you to do the same, then simply pause for a minute, and think, would you be happy in the future about your current decision of “giving up”? After some time, won’t you think “I wish I didn’t give up that day”?
And if you currently feel even the slightest chance to be regretful in the future because of your giving up today, then you need to think at least a thousand times before giving up on anything, because the elapsed time never returns.
Always remember – your current activities and decisions have a full influence on your future, so it’s your responsibility to make your future bright, rather than making it regretful.
And if your feeling of giving up is more stubborn than expected, then before coming to any decision, think once about the top successful people in the world, and whenever possible consider viewing their biography, you will get to know that your difficulties are too less, compared to those struggles which they have dealt with in their lives. If they thought like you, could they ever succeed?
Below are some basic points to remember, whenever you feel like giving up.
