I Give Up

“I GIVE UP,” are words we hear when people are at their wits ends. They are tired of hurting, tired of fighting, tired of pushing, tired of hiding, tired of being misunderstood, tired of being mistreated, tired of being undervalued, tired of being unheard, tired of it all. They have sought help and been refused, been turned away and treated unfairly. They are seriously over it.

What they fail to realize is that sometimes you have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired for YOU to make the proper changes in your life that YOU need. You were so busy focusing on how tired you were that you missed the fact that you haven’t done anything to help yourself.

Are you advocating for yourself?

Are you adhering to the doctors orders?

Are you taking your meds on schedule?

Are you exercising?

Are you taking the time to do things you love?

Are you taking proper care of yourself?

Are you clear in your communications?

Are you speaking loud enough to be heard?

Are you doing anything to help yourself?

If you are going to GIVE UP, then give up your bad habits of not following doctors orders and not taking meds on time.

Give up your bad attitude and be thankful for those who are trying to help you.

Give up your stubborn behavior thinking those behaviors will change your circumstances.

Give up the self pity because it isn’t helping you get better.

Give up your pride and allow those who love you to care for you.

Give up your unrealistic expectations and set achievable goals.

Give up everything that is hindering your progress.

Give up the mentality thinking if you give up you won’t hurt because truth be told you’re going to hurt yourself worse.

Give up the negativity and focus on the positive.

It’s perfectly okay if you give up, but give up your hindrances and not your fight and watch how fast you will win!!!!!
