Never Give Up
Bear Grylls is a British adventurer, a survival instructor, and host of the exciting "Man vs Wild" series on the Discovery Channel. His entire life story is one of daring courage and life adventures.
But, due to a parachuting accident that broke his spine in 3 places, he was told he would probably never walk again. He overcame all obstacles to achieve even greater feats and amazing adventures.
As I read his life story, I was especially impressed with one of his quotes.:
"Survival can be summed up in three words - NEVER GIVE UP- that's the heart of it really, just keep trying."
This quote gave me insight into his strength of character. But I was drawn to how those words can be spoken to everyone who suffers a loss. "NEVER GIVE UP"!
There may be days you want to give up. You may feel you have reached your limit of suffering. It may even cross your mind how easy it would be to "check out" or "quit".
I challenge you, when you feel this way...reach out to someone. Tell them you NEED to talk, make sure they are aware that you NEED them. If that person cannot hear you for any reason, find someone else who will hear you. But, above all, NEVER GIVE UP!
You can private message me. Encourage your friends and family members to follow me on Facebook. I am always open to new friends. There are times each of us NEED to talk with someone who cares.
Reach out! NEVER GIVE UP!
