You should give up
You should give up if you have worked so hard that there is nothing more you can do, if you have given it your full shot, with your full heart, and now you can rest knowing that you did your best.
Or you should give up if what you do does not make sense to you at all, if the work you put out there serves nobody, and yet, it takes your soul, and you know, deep down, that you belong somewhere else.
Or you should give up when you’re hurting, a lot, and for nothing, and you know that you deserve better.
But I hope you do not give up because you’re afraid.
I hope you do not give up without really trying.
And I hope you do not give up because you are ashamed of your dreams.
