Do You Give up Easily?

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing opens the mind. I live in a foreign country learned a foreign language .

Be yourself to be happy

Giving up is not an option, it does not mean it's the weakness in me, nor does it mean insecurity and being less confident.

I had experienced and felt like giving up on challenges, but had to overcome these feelings with positivism. I must admit, there had been times when I felt powerless. Life had given me everything and one day it all disappeared.

I did allow myself to wake up and see the light rather than facing the dark vent and cried when I felt stressed. Stressful moments made me feel at my worst and had to do something for myself to be happy again.

People say and do what they want, but I had to do right for myself. Those who are supportive when at your weakest point are those you should be counting on; and are worth having in your life. I learned of that from my own personal experiences.

The little moments had taught me greater lessons. I did not know that until I saw the greater changes in my life. My freedom and peaceful surroundings have shown me to appreciate life.

Most people are not as brave or courageous enough to just pick up and move to another country. Without trying you will never know the outcome. It is better to have tried than to not have tried at all.

One is often affected by such experiences in a negative way. My supportive family helped me grow stronger in such times. To depend on others is not what my parents had taught me. I gained my independence and don't allow the opinions of others to affect me. I think about the good and focus on what I want and not on what others want for me.

I live with the choices I make and have made and not by the choices of others. To be myself and to prove to myself the best I have and to give to others. I laugh each day and that makes me feel great. I don't care about what others have to say about me.

Be yourself and be positive!

My focus has been on the most important, and the best is what I had to do in order to move on with my life. I am not a dreamer; I see the reality of life and wasn’t doubtful of my ideas.

Follow your dreams!

Having a dream and following that dream is a huge part of my life. To have a dream and to not work on it, that I will not have what always dreamed of. Also, I must make that dream come true. Just to think it will happen to me without any hard work toward that dream, is not the reality of life.

To have hope and dreaming is normal, but I have made it happen to myself to allow an open path to come my way. I am not the type to just think everything will happen in due time.

Laziness does not bring you success.

I dream of a goal and want that for me. Hard work is required for me to achieve that goal. In the end, I am the proud one of my achievements. I know to be myself and to achieve my goals and the sky's the limit.

I do what I feel happy with and free from the depressive attitude to life. Be up for a challenge. The climb felt easy after the hardship slowly took its turn in a different direction away from the path I wanted to follow.

I felt the difficult climb and I continued the difficulty climbing up the steep hill. Finally, I reached a point when I saw the lighter part of another tunnel. I knew then, as I do now. The only option for me was to try harder and I have tried and failed and tried again until I had succeeded. I couldn't avoid feeling awkward after I met a few local people, and those feelings became normal feelings.

Anyone can feel awkward, but that moment for me passed by easily. I did not let one or two awkward moments trouble me. Certain people can make one feel awkward either on purpose, or it is just the way people choose to interact.

I made my change in myself acceptable and that is one of my most important parts of my life. My greatest experiences have taught me more of another type of life.

I have identified with my circumstances, and do not fight with what I know is not worthy of my time and good energy. It sounds easy to give up on a dream or what you would want from life itself.

Life is precious and positive thoughts lead the way for other ways and for all tragedies. I knew what to focus on when I saw the different lifestyle in Croatia. To live a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy foods makes my life feel happier.

Do you want to surrender what your job?

Giving up is like letting go of you life. People have issues and deal with these issues. Often you will feel like giving up a certain hobby or something you have owned for life.

However, it doesn't matter what your life has become you can change that. Accept the situation and move on from that. Experiences are part of who we are. You can't change what it is unless you are magician.

You can’t miss out on opportunities to give yourself another opportunity rather than just give up. Do something meaningful and have patience. Sometimes you give up on a goal to provide for your family.

It is worth doing that but you can continue your goals even while you have a family Create time for you to pursue your goals. If you feeling drained out of your energy and depressed giving up that goal is a good idea. To be able to change your mind and create another goal that is possible to do for yourself is an option.

Irrespective of how you get on in life it is up to you to focus on happy moments and do whatever you can achieve a goal. It doesn't have to be the same goal. Change goals and consider your time to make that happen for you

Struggling with feelings can make you give up if you feel you are stuck in a corner. Challenges can make you want to give up. When you choose to give up on life that is different to giving up on a goal you have can’t fit in your schedule.

Life is precious and avoid making the wrong or selfish decisions. Nothing in life will be on your side you just have to go with the flow. There will always be another option to focus on what is your passion.

Try to feel happiness naturally and that will take you further in making the right decisions. You can be happy and cope with your life by feeling positive. Giving up is never an option and it isn't part of who I am.

Change the way you approach daily activities.

Do what makes you happy and continue with a different routine to allow for a better lifestyle. Remember nothing will change for the better unless you make that change.

shelpeare thank you kindly for stopping by great quote here.

shelpeare on July 26, 2014:

Great stuff! Recently I rediscovered the following quote from the greatest basketball player ever, Michael Jordan: "I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Yves on July 23, 2014:

I liked that you said, "People who support you when at your weakest point are those who you should be counting on and are worth having in your life." This is so true and I have certainly been able to discover this in my own struggles. Well, I must say, nothing is going to keep DDE down. You're a trooper, to say the least. Thanks for the encouraging words, and being there for me.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 21, 2014:

I don't give up easily either...though I don't think giving up is weak. It's just that it is wiser to pick your battles so that you have the energy to fight the important ones.

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on July 19, 2014:

Positive and inspiring hub. Giving up is all too easy, we must try and make things work whatever the situation maybe. Great hub.

Mel Carriere from Snowbound and down in Northern Colorado on July 18, 2014:

I can feel the passion in your words. When I was younger I gave up a lot, but now that I am older I guess I am more stubborn and I'm not going to quit chasing the dream because it gives me a purpose for living. Thanks for the meaningful words.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 18, 2014:

FlourishAnyway, ''Giving up is a choice. No one's going to tell me I can't it I have my mind set on something.'' Great words from you thank you.

FlourishAnyway from USA on July 18, 2014:

I'm glad you don't give up. I'm not a "giver-upper" either. I get defiant and seek new strength, a new way around, above, through the barrier that is holding me back. Giving up is a choice. No one's going to tell me I can't it I have my mind set on something.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 18, 2014:

Pamela99 so kind of you to say so. '' I have read your hubs for a long time and I know you are emotionally strong and no quitter. There is a very good message in this hub.'' Thank you very much for stopping by.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on July 18, 2014:
