Top Ten Reasons Not to Give Up On Anything

The Top Ten
1 Anything is possible

If you give up, you'll never know if you would have succeeded. It's like walking the first 50 miles toward your destination, getting tired and bored, and then turning to walk all the way back. What a waste of time and energy that is. Why not push forward and continue to your intended destination? What's "incredibly stupid" IS giving up.

2 The satisfaction that the law of averages says you will succeed sooner or later

I wish that it happens sooner rather than later! Oh, I miss you a lot, Tina! I hope this whole thing gets resolved soon!

3 It gives you something to focus on
4 It can lead to greater things
5 People may be relying on you
6 Relieves boredom
7 Success tastes sweet

Keep pushing, and it will undoubtedly make a difference. The result will feel great.

It tastes like victory cheesecake! I'm hungry now...

8 You are too stubborn to give in

I am the master of my fate. I call the shots. I will not let fate dictate my actions!

That aside, welcome back! I hope the issue with the messages resolves itself soon.

Repeat after me: I am the master of my fate. I call the shots. I will not let fate dictate my actions!

9 You'll feel defeated

Giving up is such a terrible feeling. I remember watching a movie on TV called "Jewel Robbery," and I found out that it wasn't available in stores... after searching almost every film store in town! I sadly sighed and gave up, but then I discovered that I could buy it online. However, I'd have to purchase it along with seven other Hollywood classic movies for thirty dollars. But I didn't care! I bought it! Since then, it has been one of my favorite movies. Too bad, though. It's an underrated classic. And only like one other user knows and has seen it.

10 You will feel fulfilled that you at least tried

Really, I wouldn't be comfortable giving up on something without trying. Something good is still sure to come out of it, concrete or abstract.

So very true. Glad you're back, my friend.

11 It's one in the eye for the non-believers and haters.

Today (March 20, 2017), something I worked so hard on for a long time, and which some people said I would never succeed in, paid off! I am so flipping happy! :D

Thank you to those who never believed in me. You made me more determined to prove you wrong.
