20 Reasons To Never Give Up, Even When You Want To

You're important. Never forget that.

20 Reasons To Never Give Up, Even When You Want To
Cassandra Romkey

There are days when you want to give up, when you want to crawl into your bed and just sleep because dreams are better than your life, or so you think. When these things happen and you wonder why you're sleep walking through your day, there are a few things to keep in mind:

1. You have come so far.

I know the journey has not been easy, but you have made it so far, why throw it all away so fast?

2. People love you.

There are so many people out there that look at you and see so much, so many people that love you, and just want to see you happy.

3. You are smart.

You are brilliant, you have common sense, you're smarter than most think, you're even smarter than you think.

4. There is no one else out there like you, and you cannot be replaced.

There is no one else like you out there; you are one of a kind, you could search high and low and there would still be no one like you.

5. Your life could change, if you want it to.

If you aren't happy with the way things are then change them, it's not about what's happening in your life, it's about how you handle it.

6. Nothing feels better than success.

Some days you may feel like everything you do is a failure, but those days that you succeed are among the best in world, and there is no better feeling than that.

7. You have been made stronger through this journey.

The journey may have been tough so far but it has made you stronger than most others.

8. You have learned so much.

You've learned so much through all your struggles, school teaches you how to add and subtract but real life has shown you how to act, feel, and handle difficult situations.

9. It could be worse.

It could be worse. It could always be worse, just look at it that way.

10. You inspire other people.

You don't know it but other people look at you everyday and you inspire them to move mountains.

11. Failure is inevitable.

The only failure in life is never trying.

12. Things can only get better.

You can only go up from the bottom of the ocean.

13. Prove other people wrong.

The only thing better than being successful is being successful even when people think you won't be.

14. Anything is possible.

People say it all the time, but it is true. You can do anything you put your mind to.

15. Because you can change the world.

Even if you change the life of just one person you are changing the world and I hope you know that.

16. You deserve to be happy and alive.

You deserve to be happy, you deserve to live and see the world in the most positive of lights.

17. If you give up you’re telling yourself that you never thought you could do it in the first place.

You should give yourself a chance, if you put faith in everyone else why can't you put some in your self?

18. You never know what will happen.

Life is a game of twist and turns, some days you're up some days your down, you don't know what tomorrow brings.

19. Anything amazing and worthwhile is hard.

You have to work in order to end up where you want to be but you're already on your way.

20. You are important.

Do not forget that.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
