Quote of the day, Giving Up

Giving up means you that you have lost hope and trust in yourself. Giving up lowers your self-confidence which is a really bad quality. But knowing when you’ve had enough is understanding that the current situation is not what you want, or not heading in a direction that you want to go.

Giving up

Ever had trouble leaving an unhappy situation because you didn’t want to be a quitter? I understand. Everyone hates being called a quitter. We’ve all read quotes about giving up and are told persistently to never give up, no-pain no-gain, and a whole lot of other motivational mantras. But, there’s a big difference between giving up and knowing when to stop.

There’s a difference between giving up and knowing when you’ve had enough

Knowing when you’ve had enough

Giving up has negative connotations, knowing when you’ve had enough has positive. Giving up means that you have lost hope and trust in yourself. Giving up lowers your self-confidence which is a really bad quality. But knowing when you’ve had enough is understanding that the current situation is not what you want, or not heading in a direction that you want to go. Knowing when you’ve had enough does not mean losing hope or trust in yourself, instead, it increases your self-confidence and your decision-making qualities.

There is a big difference between giving up and knowing when you’ve had enough. Giving up means selling yourself short. It means allowing fear and struggle to limit your opportunities and keep you stuck. Knowing when you’ve had enough means freeing yourself from something that is no longer serving you. Giving up reduces your life. Knowing when you’ve had enough expands it. Giving up is imprisoning. Knowing when you’ve had enough is liberation. Giving up is self-defeat. Knowing when you’ve had enough is self-care.

Don’t simply think you have had enough you, make sure of it in your heart. When comparing the difference between these options understand what is good and what is bad.
