Never Give Up!

When I was a kid I met someone who were always saying “I don’t wanna hear you say «I can’t do it» because if you really try hard you can do everything. The girl had been inspired by a basketball movie and she really seemed to take it serious.
Later the girl told me that that mote could be used for everything because we should always try to be better and stronger. So I tried to apply it to life in general and then the doubts started to emerge. What seemed so perfect before had now won a different figure in my eyes, because life can be so rough sometimes…
For a while I try to guide my life through that rule but that never seemed to work… I remember I used to admire that girl wondering how she could always follow that mote. I established objectives and marks and then I couldn’t achieve them and it was really frustrating…
I took the mote literally so it started to work in an opposite way, because in my head, if I had try and still I had failed it could only mean one thing – I was too bad! If everyone that tried could do it why could I? For some years that feeling followed me and I felt really bad and weak about it because I couldn’t never reach what I had propose my self to. As the time went by that feeling lost some strength and now it doesn’t consume me anymore, but still sometimes I think about it…
Give up and let it go isn’t, in some circumstances, a much braver act than keep on insisting?
Can’t this ideal of life make us suffer more? Because if we never considered something finished that could give us false hopes…
And, I still wondered if it is really possible for someone to live an entire life by this “Don’t give up” rule. Because if there is, in spite everything, I have to say: congratulations!

Não há ng no mundo que nao tenha estas duvidas, sabes ng...
Ainda que seja na frente de tdos, os que elas apenas surgam no silencio do nosso quarto, enqto choramos as escondidas...tds temos essa duvida e as vezes estamos apenas cansados e tb temos vontade de desistir...embora no fundo saiba que ha sp algo por que vale a pena lutar, nem que seja plo sorriso de quem nos ker bem, mas somos humanos tdos e temos sentimentos, duvidas e angustias..é td saudavel...axo (ker dizer nao axo nda pk ng perdeu pa eu axar looool pessoa rula lol) penso (axim xim) que a solução sera mm fixar os olhos em algo da nossa vida que nos de prazer, que nos alegre os dias e ter consciencia de que ha sp quem esteja pior que nos, que ainda k a vida n se revele akilo que esperamos que vale a pena lutar...afinal vivemos tds os dias e nao temos de sobreviver...temos de lutar pra viver e viver bem ;)
I miss you my little girl :D :D :D
