Maybe I’m just wired differently. 🤔 This post may irk some people. That’s okay. I’m having a moment and I have to say it without pouring sugar on it.
I’ve never once thought about giving up on my goals. Not when I have seizures. Or Lupus. Or MS. Or this stupid autoimmune skin disease. Masses on lungs. Knee replacement? Nope, doesn’t matter. A stroke didn’t either. Oh, this tumor that was recently found? DON’T CARE. (There’s more, but hey, gotta draw the line somewhere.)More than full time job, going to school.. you know.. I guess “reasons” why people just quit. Not just fitness, but quit anything. 👏GIVING UP ON YOURSELF IS NEVER OKAY.👏 👏The reason you ARE or ARE NOT where you want to be in life is because of YOU.
I guess I just never wanted to have to start over. Or maybe I’m so focused is because if I focus on making myself better, then I don’t have to focus on the health issues.
But I’d never give up on myself, if that meant waking up at 2am because that’s the only time it can get done l- it was never a question! It just happened. I know because I’ve done it.
What happened to people staying strong when it got tough? You want to take care of your health or you SAY you want to “look better” but “OH SHIT CHEETOS DAWG!” Oh, you’re marriage is stale? “Guess I’ll find someone else to bang, instead of breathing life into mine!” You say you want a better job, but you won’t take classes to finish your degree to get that job because you say you don’t have the money but you’re out getting your hair, nails, and lips done in your $95 leggings you have 17 colors of...🤯 People, please. Stop giving up when you have to put in a little sweat or time (And secret time: usually it takes BOTH!). You say you want it, but what you really mean is you want it HANDED to you. That’s not the same thing.
Either you want it, stand up and you’ll make it happen. You will put yourself there.
Or you’ll keep quitting on yourself. But if you continue to quit on yourself, sit down and don’t continue to complain/whine about it. You put yourself there.
I’m tired of seeing people give up when the emotion is gone, or when it starts to get difficult. I just wish they BELIEVED. at Raeford, North Carolina
