The most dangerous fact about giving up it’s how easy it is to do it. I’d be lying to you if I said I’ve never thought about it (many times actually), and I’m sure you have too; but don’t worry, it’s ok.
When you go through difficult times, you learn so much about life, yourself, and the people who surround you. You will find doubt in every direction you look, but at the same time it will allow you to explore new paths and eventually lead you to imagine how your life would be if reality were different, and that, for me, is fascinating (I explained why in the post “The privilege of doubt”).
You will never need more than one reason to start something but, at the same time, you will never need more than that to end it. You’re the only one who knows what that reason is, but whatever it is, it’s never going to be wrong for you.
When you think you can’t deal with something anymore, you’ll see how everything you see and feel will encourage you to quit, and it’s probably going to make you think you’re not worth it, but I promise you, if you are able to turn that feeling around and see it as one more thing to overcome and succeed, the energy you get it’s something you haven’t even imagined.
Lastly, whatever your decision is, remember that the feeling of accomplishment is felt with the same intensity as regret, and both last the same time (I say it from first-hand experience). Nonetheless, whatever your decision is, life will open new doors.
