For me, the first time, second time and even the third time I read this quote, I believe it is asking me to not giving up on the thing that I have hold on so long.
What if, I like the guy, treating him good all the time, do my best to let him fall for me, not giving up on waiting him to fall for me? But end up, he has a girlfriend now. Should I give up?
What if, I am kind of feeling annoying on someone’s attitude, and I tried to let him/her know about their problems, and they choose to remain their bad attitude? Should I give up on advising them?
Not to say about studies, career, because it may be easier because it is a personal stuff, you just have to spend more time on it. But, saying those which involving the other persons, maybe your friends, or family.
When you meet something that is uncontrollable, will you give up?
Read this quote again, think of the reason why you held on so long, it doesn’t mean to encourage you not to give up, but I believe it is asking me to rethink again about the reason. Is the reason worth to let me continue hold on for so long? Did I actually miss out some other better choice?
Rethink, whether it is worth for you to continue holding it.
If you think that’s not worth to continue, then, please be brave to give up, after making a decision.
Since you can persist on holding it so long, you can also give up when you think you need to.
