On Perservering


I think that at one point or another, everyone has had the urge to give in. Be it education, friendships, a relationship; we all at some point get to the stage where we feel we can't give anymore. It is not our job to give the world, it is however our obligation purely for ourselves to persevere.

In life, nothing worth doing is ever easy. If it were, we would not feel such a huge rush of achievement when we finally cracked it.We need to keep pushing however. It is so worth it, all we have to do is try and with a little hope we can do anything.

Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.
