Keep Going, Never Give Up

Updated on January 16, 2018

No matter what happens in life, there's always one thing to keep in mind: that you must keep going, must keep striving, must keep pushing forward, no matter how hard it is, no matter how big of a wall is in front you, no matter how much you wanna give in to what's really going on inside you. You can never let something hold you back from looking at the bigger picture, from looking forward to the future, instead of reminding yourself of what's already passed. Sometimes you feel like giving up, on everything. You feel like you can't go on anymore. You can't go on telling yourself that everything will be fine, that it'll all work out in time, because you don't even believe it anymore. But then you have to ask yourself: is giving up really what I wanna do? Do I really wanna be a quitter, and let myself down, let the people who care about me down? You have to keep going. Because there is something out there for you to find, that'll bring all the happiness you've been wanting this whole time. The path to happiness is never a smooth one. It's full of twists, turns, bumps, ditches, walls, boulders. Every type of obstacle you can think of, it'll always find it's way into your path, testing you to pick your next move. Over, around, through it, or turn around and run away. The toughest challenge is the one you have with yourself. You could be feeling terrible inside, at the bottom of a pit. But you put on that smile, you keep living your life as if everything is fine in your world, when really you just wanna curl up into a ball and disappear from the world. You wanna just scream at the top of your lungs until they collapse. Until your body collapses. But you choose not to. You choose to hold your head up high, push your chest out, and walk forward with strength. It's always said that things get better in time, and they do. They do. But until you reach that point, be prepared for a battle within yourself. Within your mind. Within your heart. Be prepared to use all the strength you can seemingly gather just so you can wake up and get outta bed every morning. Be prepared to use all the strength to smile. Be prepared to use all the strength to hold back the tears you just wanna let out. Your heart tells you that you can't do it, but your mind tells you that you need to keep going. Your heart hurts so much it's almost unbearable. But then your mind reminds you, that pain is temporary. Keep going, until your heart thanks you for not listening to it. Just. Keep. Going. No matter what.
