Giving up has always been a sign of weakness, right? The last thing anyone wants to be is weak. Therefore, we should never give up on what makes us happy and what we want out of life.
When you want something in your life so badly, you will do anything and everything you can to get it, then hold onto it for as long as it is possible. Although, you can't always hold on to everything, unfortunately.
Even if what we want gets taken away from us, time after time of regaining it, we still refuse to give up. We can lose something a hundred times, but wanting it badly enough, we will try and try again until it's in our reach again.
Then, what if our want becomes wants, and there are several things we are striving for? What if our wants coincide with each other, and it's physically impossible to have all our wants right now? We may be selfish beings, but we do realize when it's time to stop.
You can never have everything you want at once. Our wants must come in singles, and we can only be granted one at a time. Though, if we hold onto that first want, we can strive for the next want and end up having two things we want.
No, you do not get everything you want in life, but why can't you have it all? I may want love, my own place, the perfect job, and a puppy all right now, but we know that life doesn't work quite like that.
If I can have one of those things and be working on the next, then I am set in life. I have accomplished one of my wants, and will strive to achieve the next one, while holding on to what I currently have. I am someone, though, who is not ok with losing what I have.
So we will fight for what we want, it's what we've done and what we'll always do. We'll be stubborn to hell and back, until what we want is ours.
Like I said, everything doesn't flow in at once. Eventually, you will get what you want, and even along the way, change what we want. Sometimes, changing what we want or putting it off for a bigger want, is what we must do.
BUT, never give up on your wants. You can always find a way to get them sometime, but maybe now is not the time.
So keep the wants you have and cherish them, whether it be a great job, a relationship, or your little apartment you love so much. Giving up your dreams is just silly.
With this said, never give up, and hold on to what you have.
