Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?

Of course! Who hasn’t?!

Not necessarily suicidal thoughts but I’ve definitely become so overwhelmed, underwhelmed, not satisfied or just confused, that I just wanted to give up period. Like, what’s the point? What’s the point of struggle if there aren’t any bright lights at the end of the tunnel? What’s the point of a challenge if your opponent isn’t challenging? What’s the point of giving so much of your time and dedication to a selfish and cruel world? If you keep thinking this way, you may just give up. But I can’t. I can’t let my parents down. THEY’VE struggled enough.

More importantly, I can’t give up because someone died FOR ME. How can I take His death in vain? The ultimate sacrifice. It’s like someone giving you a gift and you don’t say thank you. How rude.

I took communion tonight for the first time in over a year. Tonight, His death became real. He died so I didn’t have to give up because He is the hope. So I cling to that. For dear life, seriously.

Don’t give up guys. Your life is to be a blessing to someone else that may feel like giving up as well.

Cheers to living and living well.
