Don’t Give Up.
I say this both as an encouragement to myself and others who may receive it.
It is difficult to move on or muster the courage to try again when you’ve been doubted, discounted, discouraged, insulted, marginalized and devalued by people who know you and those who don’t. Everyone isn’t your friend. Everyone will not share your vision. Everyone won’t care or consider. As difficult as it is for you not to lose it, keep it. Save that energy for your victory.
You’ll overcome, even if there’s no one there to cheer you on or celebrate the accomplishment. You will make it.
Sigh… I know. Just whisper it to yourself when know one is looking. Don’t Give Up.
