Giving up may be exactly what you need to thrive
There is pure magic in being passionate about something. It is amazing to have something that makes your soul shine and motivates you to move forward. Unfortunately, sometimes life has other plans for you. The one thing you so desperately want to achieve slowly slips away. Your dreams start to seem more and more impossible every day. No matter how hard you try, you are still too far away from your goals. You eventually find yourself on the verge of giving up.
One little voice in your head tells you: “Don’t give up, keep trying!” But what if giving up leads to something even more ambitious and beneficial for you than being stuck in one place, trying to fulfill a dream that might never come true? What’s better- to feel miserable while trying to reach an unreachable goal or to focus your energy on what truly matters?
Sometimes giving up is the key to opening a new chapter of your life.
As they say, beginnings always hide themselves in ends. What if the end of you trying to achieve the unachievable is the beginning of you reaching heights you were never bold enough to dream of? Besides, who said that giving up on something that used to make you happy but doesn’t anymore is wrong?
The truth is that letting go of goals that no longer make you feel content often clears the air and helps you see better opportunities. It makes you realize that it is much more valuable to stay true to yourself than to stick to a plan that doesn’t feel right anymore. While giving up on such a significant part of your life may seem terrifying, it could turn out to be the best thing you could do for yourself.
When you leave behind a dream that no longer adds value to your days, you make enough space for a new one that makes you feel whole again. In a way, it helps you let go of the past and welcome your future with open arms.
During this life-changing transition, you are able to appreciate all the lessons you’ve learned while chasing what you thought will make you feel complete. This brings new meaning to everything you do. You become wiser, braver, more experienced, and more determined than you were before.
Giving up can serve as a character-builder that turns you into the person you have always wanted to be.
Some people spend their whole lives trying to find who they truly are, holding on to the same goals, failing to realize the value of change. Every single one of us has a unique path, but change is always inevitable. So instead of defying it and stubbornly wasting energy on a dream that makes you feel miserable, you should try to be more open to new beginnings. It is a journey that requires getting out of your comfort zone, but this often turns out to be exactly what you need.
One day you will see the power of quitting. Learning to let go of what’s holding you back at the right time is the key to finding what you’re looking for. Accepting that sometimes you need to give up in order to thrive will help you go through life with the right amount of self-awareness you need to fulfill your true potential.
Remember that beginnings always hide themselves in ends. Sometimes giving up is exactly what you need to grow.
