People may give up on you, but never give up on yourself

I woke up this morning with a question for you. But to gain from it, you have to answer it honestly. Here it is: What have you given up on… because someone else gave up on you?

In life, you will face many obstacles. Not only the ones that you have internally, but also the ones that you have with other people. As a result, there’s no doubt that people will come and go in and out of your life at various points for various reasons. Sometimes you grow out of each other. Sometimes life just happens. But other times, it’s because someone’s opinion of you, hurt you.
At first, it can be harsh. Then, kind of sour. And finally, it may even cause you to believe what they said about you, causing you to not believe in yourself. Their bitter words ring in your soul so true, making you doubt yourself and all that you dream of becoming.

But like motivational speaker Les Brown is known for saying, “Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality.” People may give up on you, but don’t you ever give up on yourself,EVER.
You have to become your biggest advocate. Sure, you may get knocked down at first, but the good part is, the human spirit is far more capable of rising above anything, should everything, come its way, even those who stop believing in us. As five-time Olympian and renowned tennis player Venus Williams once said, “You have to believe in yourself when no one else does. That’s what makes you a winner.” Yep, it sure does. You have to believe in yourself with everything that’s inside of you. Look, you don’t need anyone to believe in you to accomplish anything. However, you do have to strongly believe in yourself.
Decide that you are going to keep believing in yourself and in your dreams, even if you are the only one who does. Your great belief in yourself can far outweigh any negativity you face. Keep pushing forward and choose to only surround yourself with those who lift you higher. Never give up on yourself.
