Do you give up easily?

When things get hard, how do you react? Do you push through the hard times until is gets better? Do you remain positive nad confident that you can get through the situation? Or, do you tend to give up easily? I have always been the type to keep pushing forward. I may have a day or two where I allow myself to feel like I am giving up, but then I snap right out of it and tackle the situation. I think that it is okay to allow that brief period of giving up as long as we don't allow ourselves to stay at that point.

Of course not. I do not give up that easily. I always find solutions. Giving up is like saying you are not worth it. As long a person lives, the person should not give up if he or she wants to obtain something.

I dont give up easily because I know that whatever situation we are encountering right now is just a test that God is giving us and the least that we can do for HIM is to try our best to solve it .... the answer maynot be a positive one but I know that it is for our best because He will never forsake us ..... just hang on and have patience and our problems/concern will be answered....

There are times when I think of resigning from a job because of difficulty but I hang on.I look at the positive things it can give so I stayed.

No matter how hard it is you should never give up, just keep pushing through it. Once you've gotten it over with it's a great feeling. Quitting it just there and saying you can't do it sounds good for the moment, but in the future you will be put down by yourself and others.

I have the same attitude as you. When things get wrong, it is normal to feel bad and feel depressed. But after a while, as lonbg as you have the positive attitude, you will appease yourself and make things right. With our ups and downs, for the sadness and happiness. These are just siuations which would make us stronger. God is giving us some burdens in life and test us how we could manage those problems. Never give up. Life wouldn't be exciting and thrilling without any troubles.

It depends what it is and how important it is. If it's something little like say finding an item, no big deal..... if it's something important like say our mortgage then I"m on top of things.

I do push through but I do not force the issue. Basically, I do not give up easily. I mean, I know my limitations and if the situation really does not allow me to go on, then I will find another way to solve the problem. I always think positive in what I do, but when its not really for me, then I do not force the issue. I have always understand that we can't have it all. So if for that moment I fail, then I will slow down a little bit, think and fight another day. If after trying and still failing, then I accept that it's really not for me. But gladly life had been good for me. There were times that I stumbled, but I manage to go on, and so far, life is good.

Hi Everyone! My response is this, I'm a positive person life has its ups and downs and always will just except it, remain positive things have a way of working out and through the hard times try to find positive people and or family members or friends that can help you . I really don't think its in the human nature to just give up. I think people just get extremely frustrated when they can't solve a problem or situation. But if you notice in life with patients and time things get solved maybe not the way we want it to be, but in life we have things we can resolve or can't sometimes we have to get help from other to help us out and in other cases its just not in our hands. That's why people believe in god and why people pray.And that's why others also pray for others so I say hang in there be strong be positive. Cause negative is sure not going to do anything for you nether is giving up.

Hell no!When things get tough that is when you say "shite!" and dig you heels in harder!Owning a business is hard at the best of times, but then people start talking recession & the media start with their doom & gloom tactics, well what do you do? People are crumbling, big businesses are going under right left & centre, do you panic & give up? No way! You work harder & you work longer & you make damn sure that your business succeeds!We have come through the last six month showing a growth in our business; why? Because we believe in what we do, we care about our business & our customers, & we sure as hell are not going to let the government take us down just because they can't handle their business!Wow! I feel so much better now I've got that off my chest (no pun intended).

I think when things get hard we must stay positive. If we think negative the things will be worse. So always stay positive and enjoy life.

When it comes to relationships I do not give up too easily unless he ends things then I am not going to be the psycho girl who stalks him. But if there are issues I would do what I can to work them out.

i do not give up that easily as i dont get discouraged soon. people give up only when they feel that there is no one standing beside them to share their happiness or support them when they lose.

Everything depends on need. If the work is really neccery,struggle would be more and the opposite with the less wanted things.

Hi lynne that's a good principle. I do that, too. Right now things aren't really good but I try to think positively and push hard to be able to get through these financial and love life crisis. Though I have my moments when I felt like giving up even on my dwindling relationship but after a few days I get right back up to my old cheery self to push through it even with somewhat nil encouragement from the person I needed most...

Never, even I have no choice to make things easy. I prefer to wait untill chance come out. There is a tradition chinese motto "The boat would go straightly when come near to the ferry"

I don't give up easily but eventually I do give up on something or someone who disappoints me.It usually takes a long time to make me get to the extreme measure of giving up.Usually I tend to search for ways to get by without thinking about others. But if you want to accomplish a good thing you have to make sacrifices.Giving up is not one of them.we have to stay strong and keep our eyes on the prize.You never know,you might make it big someday!
