The term giving up has always been really confusing to me. Is it a good or bad thing? Because surely if someone is doing something they don't like & take the initiative to stop doing that thing...that's good. But others might say they've "given up". Okay, well I'm here to challenge the thinking that giving up is a bad thing. To be honest, I think giving up on some things could be the best decisions some people make.
(This is not to say you should just quit everything you don't like & do nothing. I'm saying if you can foresee a different future on a different path, with different opportunities, take it. Giving up on the old, hopeless, sad routine is good.)
Why is it "giving up" if I'm stopping something I don't enjoy & doing something else. If that's what it means to give up, then I'm going to say it's not a bad thing.
I think we as humans are more in tune with the things we don't like than the things we do. We are 100% sure we don't like the things we don't, but we're not completely sure of the things we do. Therefore, if I'm sure I don't like something & I've given up on it to pursue other things I think that's good. It's easier to not give up, and not think hard about what you really want to do. Giving up on things is a leap. It isn't easy jumping from one degree to another, or quitting the job you hate to move to another. Hell, quitting is one of the hardest decisions a person can make. It's brave. I'm challenging the thinking. Giving up requires a ton of freaking bravery.
Maybe I've got it all wrong, please leave your opinions down in the comments. See you very soon!
