I know there are times when you may feel that life just isn’t going your way. This is when your mettle really gets tested. Whether it is being tested by God, or some other entity, is not for me to say. Maybe it is your own guilt and dissatisfaction that builds your load. It may even get to the point when you decide it is all too much to bear. Do you give in to your feelings of self doubt and loathing, or do you stand up to your own ego and push your self to do better, to be better. Times like this is when you/we really find out what you/we are made of. There should never be a time in ones life when they decide to throw in the towel. I am sure there are several reasons you should think about what you are actually willing to throw in. 1. There is always new adventures, new fascinations right around the corner. 2. In giving up on you, you are actually telling the people around you (family, friends) that you are giving up on them as well. 3. Being tested isn’t the obstacle, it is how you handle the test that counts. 4. The strength you need to believe in yourself is usually just a phone call away. A conversation with the right friend can do wonders.
5. The praise you will not only receive, but justifiably earn, is always an ego booster.
Perseverance, not always an easy road to trek. Very much worth the final reward.
