I know how you feel sort of like life is a really long marthon that never seems to stop and you just want to give up on the race because you're so tired? I get that way, but if you keep pushing a bit further that second wind kicks in or you turn a corner to see something you've never seen before. You know what really helps me when I get like that? I go to a plant nursery, seeing all the color and life and possibilties of the world makes life beautiful.
At times I do, sometimes I grow weary of the constant things I have to do on a daily basis to get by. Granted I actually enjoy my work and co-workers, but it can get overwhelming at times. Then with all the bad news on the economy, the world at large, and my own health issues I tend to get super stressed out.
Hey, everybody feels that way every once in awhile. It's a normal emotional outlet for us humans. The test is whether you're strong enough to pull yourself up and out of that hole before you hit bottom ....and ya know what? ....the odds are in your favor that you are!
Depends on what you're talking about. Sometimes you have to walk away from things to preserve your own sanity. Sometimes you look around and see that you are committed to the cause, even if nobody else is, and you keep trying. Sometimes life gives you struggles in order to teach you something else about yourself and you emerge stronger on the other side. Personally, I'm stubborn as heck and I'd hate miss an opportunity to grow, so I'm a stick-it-out person. I have trouble not finishing books even, no matter how terrible!
I think everyone feels that way sometimes. It usually happens when I'm overwhelmed and life is not going as planned, but I have found by pushing forward or at times just going with the tide you get through it and everything seems much better than it was before.
Sometimes luck seems to turn in such a way that I feel like I'm running in circles. Every good thing that happens seems to be shadowed by five rotten or not-so-good things.
I'm able to pick myself up and dust myself off and keep on walking for the most part. Life isn't about who makes it to the end on the easiest path and I know that.
Every once in a blue moon I do give up though. Not on life or myself - but I give up on trying to make things work in a world of bad. It's a moment when you want to raise your hands and just scream, "I give up!" to whoever would listen. So I retire to my room, turn out the lights and release every emotion within me.
It drains me, but I'm able to recover by the next day so I can face the world again.
