Why Should I Continue?

A year ago, I was ready to give up on life but I'm still standing. Now, I'm writing to folks who might feel they are ready to do the same. If you find yourself at such a point, just take a couple of minutes to read through this and take things from there.

Are you at your wits end?

We’ve all been at that point where we feel like the walls are closing in on us, and that nothing is going right in our lives. For some (like myself), it can get to a point where it is all so overwhelming that you just want to roll into a ball and wish the ground opens up and swallows you.

This is for those people who have all but given up and ask themselves

“Why Should I Continue?”

It’s very easy to get a negative mindset and look at the future from where you currently are (especially when things aren’t working out) and that can kill any type of hope you have.

It’s not that people are doing it purposefully, it’s just that when things aren’t working out; there’s no reason for anyone to be cheerful of anything.

It is because of this that I’d like to encourage people to try their very best to remind themselves that where they currently are in life is not where they going to finish off.

Personally, if I was to look back at the past years, I’d have never imagined I’d end up where I find myself. Things are always changing and how you take that change is entirely up to mindset. Regardless of how messy the situation is, I try to take things in stride because I know (or at least hope) that the future will bring a new opportunity for me to get back on my feet.

You folks probably know the story of that Persian fable where a king asks some wise men to make him a ring that will make him happy when he is sad. In my opinion, the words those guys inscribed on that ring are representative of all things in life:

This too shall pass.

Personally,I've grown to like facing difficulties in life: they give me opportunities to prove myself wrong about what I thought I can or can’t do. I find they are fantastic for killing self-doubt because you’d find yourself in a position where you’d have run out of worry and just do it because there was nothing else to do. I'd like to encourage people to do the same.

Keep in mind that struggle builds strength so the next time you find yourself taking on another difficult situation, you’d find that it’s just an anthill instead of the mountain you took it for.

I’m not going to say giving up is a selfish thing to do and that there are people that would be disappointed because that’s just bull. Guilt tripping a person is a terrible way to make a person do things because that adds more pressure and expectation on them to succeed.

What would happen should a person be ill-equipped to deal with expectations and failure? That’s the type of thing that can put a person on a dangerous path to self-destruction or worse.

Don’t be afraid to feel pity for yourself or thinking about yourself. If anything, take the time to feel sorry for yourself. Eventually that too shall pass and you can start rebuilding. I know I’m repeating myself by I’d like to reiterate that you focus on yourself and what makes you happy because in the end, your wellbeing is the most important thing.

Speaking from experience, if you can keep the things that make you happy close (and cherish them), they will make the suffering and distress worth it and you’ll soon start looking at things in a manner where you won’t be looking at the storm clouds but rather at the rainbow that follows. Furthermore,once you are in a better space (in a more positive frame of mind), you can start planning your triumphant return to the top.

Finally, I’ll just urge people who find themselves in such situations to just have hope that things will eventually work out. Now I know that faith and hope are closely related, and it’s hard to be definitive about the difference but I’ll try my best to differentiate between the two.

According to Hebrews 11.1 (New International Version):

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

From this we can see that faith is a complete confidence in something and that it will happen whereas hope is sort of a quiet confidence that something that hasn’t happened yet will happen e.g. you can certainly hope for things without being sure they will come to pass, but having faith means being sure.

Try to keep your expectations reasonable as this will keep your hopes up. This is so that when you work towards said expectations,your hopes will turn into faith.

To quote a Black Coffee song:
“Even though I get low sometimes, I always stay strong”

Take pride in how far you've come and how much you’ve survived and use that as fuel to push past your next obstacles.
