Questions to ask before giving up

We've all been there...freaking the f*ck out, feeling the world will end, like we're a failure, capable of nothing.

Well at least, I'm happy to admit: I have been there.

That's why I can only highly recommend this amazing hands-on, practical, step-by-step guide on what to do when those moments of freak-out happen.

// First step?

To readily admit to ourselves that: Everything is awful, I'm not Okay.

There is no reason to be ashamed about this.

// Second Step?

Reading and adhering to this list of advice, here's a sneak peak of two pieces I particularly loved:

Do you feel paralyzed by indecision?  Give yourself ten minutes to sit back and figure out a game plan for the day.  If a particular decision or problem is still being a roadblock, simply set it aside for now, and pick something else that seems doable. Right now, the important part is to break through that stasis, even if it means doing something trivial.


Have you cuddled a living being in the past two days?  If not, do so.  Don’t be afraid to ask for hugs from friends or friends’ pets.  Most of them will enjoy the cuddles too; you’re not imposing on them.

For your convenience here is also a printable version of the list of advice.

// Third Step?

Realizing you indeed:

Are not alone.


Evidenced by the list above going viral...and in an odd way, doesn't it feel better knowing that probably half of the world is freaking out right now, wanting to give up on something?


Yes, it's not you.

It's simply an ambitious people problem, and thankfully, the above advice can work wonders.


What have you found helps when you feel like giving up? Do you usually admit to others when you feel like giving up?
