When Giving is Good and When It is Not


Reasons not to give up on life

There are times, occasions and circumstances when you MUST #GIVE-UP.

Then there are times, irrespective of the compelling situation you JUST #DON’T-GIVE-UP.

Then there are situations, when things feel too overwhelming, that you feel that, there is no hope whatsoever and you need to end the suffering by choosing to quit on life, YOU MUST #SEEK-HELP.

In many situations, giving up could be the best that you can do to yourself and maybe others around you.

Yet in many of the contexts, it is necessary to #rough-it-out by going through the most #overpowering-odds.

Our Facing the #difficult situations, in spite of all the #threats, #fears, #anxieties, #uncertainties, #risks – is the only sure shot recipe of long-term #happiness, #success, #growth, #development, #relationships, #satisfaction and #memorable and #meaningful-life.

Our society teaches us never to give up, it is just not true. Sometimes the #resulting #stress, #pain and other accompanying #experiences are not #worth going through them.

Many times, giving up could actually be the signs of your #courage, #power and #control.
