During a Hard Time Giving Up is not an Option

If there is anything worth living for it is definitely your own life. Life is a gift, and it is precious. Don't give up just because things are hard. Do you know how great you are going to feel when you have overcome obstacles? It is a grand feeling to be able to say, "after all these difficult times, I am still here. I am still standing strong." Giving up is not an option nor should it ever be. There are so many people who are not here anymore who fought for their lives, who fought to smile a little more, who fought to cry a bit more, who fought to see the beauty in this world and people who have fought to live in the world at it's ugliest times and still had hope for the next day. Live your life like it's golden, live your life as if it were your last. Get your favorite book of quotes, sit down, read and reflect.
