Why You Shouldn't Give Up

You never know what could happen if you try your best and don't give up.

Why You Shouldn't Give Up

Things might not be going exactly like you had planned or imagined, but that doesn't necessarily mean that things are wrong, messed up, or bad.

It doesn't really matter what it is. Whether it's a relationship, career, or even something as simple as a club or activity you had planned. If it's not going the way you thought it would, that could actually be a good thing.

Sometimes it's ok if things are different than how you expected them to be. Sure, in the moment it can feel frustrating and upsetting, but it doesn't always have to be that way.

It often depends on how you view the situation. If you try to find the positive in your situation, good thoughts and good things can come from it. You will start to see things differently and have a brighter outlook on what it is you are trying to accomplish and just life in general.

You might want to give up at times. It's not always easy to keep pushing forward, especially when things seem like they aren't working out. Several of the most influential, inspiring, and incredible people who have made a huge impact on others and the world around them have contemplated giving up at one point or another. If they had given up, they wouldn't have made these great accomplishments.

Sometimes, one thing doesn't work out so that a different opportunity could arise, perhaps even a better one. Don't let these opportunities pass you by. Try to just go with it and make the most out of things. The outcome can be better than anything you could have even imagined in the first place. Try to be open to new possibilities.

If you give up, you already know you don't really have a chance of whatever it is that you wanted to work out. But if you hang in there and keep going, you are giving things a chance to work out. You never know, if you really give it your all you can even surprise yourself in what you are capable of doing and achieving.

Ultimately, you have to believe in yourself. Only you can decide what will help motivate you and what will help you stay on track to succeed in doing whatever it is you are set out to accomplish. You can be successful, happy, and do something truly amazing. You just have to trust that you can do it and that things will work out for the best. Take things day by day, even minute by minute, and try your hardest to just let everything happen naturally. Things aren't always going to be easy, but hopefully, they will be worth it. You can do it. Figure out what exactly it is that you want to achieve and then try your best to make it happen.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
