Almost all the time I’m at the tip of giving up, I wake up, no joy, no happiness, nothing to live for, I want to just give up and disappear? Yeah, uncountable times! And the annoying part is that giving up is so very easy.
With so much emotional baggage, you might have found yourself in a tight place and it felt like everything is working together against you; you’ve lost it or you can’t hang on for minute longer. But, that’s the time, you should hold on tight and never give up, because trust me, that’s when the tides is about to turn for you.
What is life throwing at you that make you feel like giving up?
You don’t feel like doing anything neither do you have anything to live for.
You don’t feel like you’re good at anything .
In fact, You just don’t want to get out of bed… You seem tired, discouraged, vexed out or just feeling like you’ve lost that vision and motivation at the same time.
If you ever think you at some point feeling like giving up or lost your purpose for living, then you could use some grit today.
Here’s what you try to remind myself of when you feel like giving up…
1. Go Back To ‘why’
`Being here means that you want someone to give you a reason to keep fighting for happiness and create the life you desire so much.
Well that’s why I am here.
First, ask yourself a question and answer it
WHY DO I FEEL TO GIVE UP?
If you feel frustrated because of yourself then you need to work on your mindset. Because the mind controls how we feel.
If you feel frustrated and want to give because of someone else you need a mental reset.
You came to earth to live and thrive, you’re not allowing someone else to steal your joy and happiness.
At some point in time, you were alive and suddenly you started diminishing and started moving so away from it. And you end up, losing interest and questioning your decision and actions.
Everything starts with the “why”. You started your daily routine to look healthy or be healthy or you started writing for people to read your stories. So get back clarity. And every once in awhile, revisit your big “WHY” and keep a track on it til sink down your soul.
2. Your Mind is a Suggestion Engine
Our mind is a landing point for all kind of thoughts – negative or positive. That is, it’s left for you to process and determine which thought you give room to. So remind yourself that whatever thought you have is just a suggestion and an idea, not an order.
Whether your mind is suggesting that you should suck up and feel depressed or it’s suggesting that you should give up or suggesting that I take an easier path; It doesn’t matter!
The truth is that, if you can take a moment to pause and listen deeply, you’ll discover your mind is also suggesting that you’ll feel very good about living your best life and achieving your life goals.
But the problem is that at that moment you’re just looking to the side for whatever voice that’s ok with what you’re feeling at the moment.
Just remember, none of these suggestions are orders. They’re merely options. You have the power to choose which option you follow. And that is to get up and keep moving.
3. Learn to Feel Uncomfortable
Whatever discomfort you might be feeling, it’s OK! Just maintain perspective. Your life is good but not meant to be easy and your discomfort is temporary. Allow yourself to step into this moment of discomfort and let it build and strengthen you.
All you need to do is to remind yourself that things will get tough and it won’t always be roses so you can get mentally prepared for whatever that comes your way.
Remember its darkest before dawn; this thought will help you hold on when things seem difficult or you find yourself at the lowest point with your motivation.
Life is a summary of a hundred thousand daily battles and tiny decisions to either gut it out or give it up?
Our life is on a balance between giving into the ease of distraction and overcoming the pain of discipline. And the truth is that our life is defined in this delicate balance.
Of course, there’s a moment when you don’t feel like living. But, that’s not a moment to be thrown away. Whatever, the weakness you might be feeling, carefully remind yourself that this moment is your life as much as any other moment. So, you can spend it in a way that will make you proud. If giving up, is what’s going to make you proud then it’s Ok, but if not, get up and live the life that will.
4. Take A Look Back
Remind yourself your victories when you feel overwhelmed and tired and want to give up. The things you have learned and achieved. Remember and reflect. Then appreciate, celebrate and move on.
And if you’re like me still struggling to achieve something out of life. Then it’s Ok, look up to someone who has fought and won and tell yourself you can do much more.
So, what do I do when I feel like giving up? Don’t give up, Just breathe and keep living!
You don’t have to be at your very best. And it’s not for you to judge yourself either.
Life’s already hard and I don’t blame me or any other person who thinks like that… we’re all facing obstacles but YOU SHOULDN’T ACCEPT DEFEAT!
