This may be useful, or useless to many of you who read this. As of today, there are many teenagers, not just on CCG, but anywhere you can think of, that are going through some hard times. Even if the problem is small or huge, we/they decide to give up. The only valid excuse you have to give up is if you are dead lol. 1: As long as you are alive, anything is possible As long as you are alive (and healthy and free) you have the choice to keep trying until you finally succeed. You don’t want to be known as someone that is weak and gives up. Go out there and prove yourself to the world and to yourself. You CAN and WILL achieve what you set out to do. The only time you fail is when you give up. 2: Believe in yourself and your dreams Don’t sell yourself short. In life there are going to be many people who will try to bring you down and tell you what you want to achieve is not possible. Don’t let anyone destroy your dreams. 3: Let the haters hate There will always be haters. There will always be plenty of naysayers and people who try to tear you down. Don’t pay attention to them and don’t take what they say to heart. Let the haters hate and you keep believing in yourself. 4: You deserve to be happy Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise. You deserve to be happy and you deserve to have success. Keep that mindset and never give up until you reach your destination! 5: Inspire others Be an inspiration to others by refusing to give up. Who knows what someone else can achieve because you never gave up and in turn inspired them not to give up. "When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." -Harriet Beecher Stowe Hope this did something, even if the slightest, for anyone. Even if it was just one person.
