Dare to GIVE UP.

Sometimes giving up is the best thing to do. Everybody always tells you giving up is weak. That it is the wrong thing to do, no matter what. But sometimes giving up is the best thing to do. Sometimes you need to give up something to get something better. Sometimes you have to give up something that makes you unhappy, to get happy. It takes a lot of courage to give up something you feel you should do, or everybody else thinks you should do, but that doesn´t make you happy. It takes a lot of courage to admit that you can’t do something, that is not within your capabilities. Giving up can be weak, but it can also be brave.
I know there are a lot of people out there who wish they could travel the world, who wish they could have that awesome job or who wish they could be an artist. The truth is that most people do not get what they want, because they are too scared to give up what they have. They are scared to quit their jobs or their school. Giving something up means that you have to start something new and that is scary. You could fail, you could fall flat on your face. You might even regret giving up. That’s life. Chance is, however, that you get what you want.  You could travel the world, get that amazing job, be an artist, or whatever it is that you want to be. But even if you fail, you get something in return for your bravery. You don´t have to ask yourself: “What would have happened if I would have had the courage? What if?”    
So work hard at what you want, don’t quit if it gets hard, if you know that it is what you want. But if you feel you are in the wrong place, doing the wrong thing, working hard to get something you don’t want to have, have the courage to give up.
Dare to give up.
