if i told you that I’m giving up, don’t believe me. I don’t mean it. I just have to tell you all the negative thoughts running through my mind to have it be refilled with the positive ones
When people say they’re giving up, do they really mean it?
Perhaps we just get a little worked up. Consumed by our thoughts and feelings that we get to the point of saying this. We really don’t want to. It’s just that, we want to feel reassured that someone out there still cares and that we’re not doing this alone.
We just need someone to tell us that things will get better soon. Someone to give a little light in our situation.
Perhaps we’re just tired of trying and we need someone to constantly encourage us not to stop chasing for what we want. Someone to tell us not to settle for less.
We’re silently shouting for help. We want someone to tell us that they’re not leaving. We just want a pat on the back, or perhaps a really long tight hug.
Perhaps we just need someone to tell us that we’re being too hard on ourselves and have a little break instead.
I want you to know that only because I told you I’m giving up, it doesn’t automatically mean that I would. I may tell you how frustrated and sad I am, but no, it doesn’t mean that I’m depressed. I’m honestly always trying so hard to be optimistic about things and I sometimes have to tell you all the negative thoughts I have as to have it be refilled with the positive ones.
I hope that when someone tells you that they’re close to giving up, never think twice, just stay. Never think that they’re being so dramatic, weak or what not because that’s the time you’ll know they really need you.
