Why We Give Up
We give up because we feel afraid that we can’t do it
We give up because we’ve been told it’s impossible
We give up because we feel discouraged by the work
We give up because we’re afraid of uncertainty.
We give up because our peers have never done it before
We give up because we don’t feel strong enough for the fight
We give up because the voices tell us to
We give up because our parents never believed in us
We give up because we didn’t realize that our reasons to give up weren’t reasons to give up but voices to encourage us to make the choice to stop trying. Before they were our reasons they belonged to others and each listener had a choice to believe the voice or expose the lie.
