The easy way out...?
Sunday, October 07, 2012
Giving up is easy. It's what most of us think when we embark on a journey that involves overcoming certain obstacles. To give up and throw caution to the winds when we've simply had enough is SO much easier than persevering and never letting go. But in the long run, IS it actually easier to let go than to hold on tight, grit your teeth, and keep on going? I'm not so sure. I think it's worth the sweat and the tears to keep on fighting, because there WILL be results! Isn't it more satisfying to win a race than to keep on losing?Doesn't it take twice the amount of energy to relift yourself after every downfall rather than knowing you're finally on the right track to change things? Isn't that what should make you smile everyday and be happy: the fact that you know you are on your way to achieving something? It's not always an easy thing to accept. I know, because temptations are everywhere, I know what its like to have that day where you would just want to sit in your room, cry over how you hate yourself while stuffing your face with all sorts of food. I've been giving up all my life, and I've finally reached the point where I've simply had enough and want to change myself for good. I know it won't be easy. I've spent too many years having secret binge moments due to self-loathing (which clearly made things worst), and my relationship with food won't heal overnight. But I'm wiser now, and I have this amazing place to go to in times of need. Next time my hand will be reaching for the cookies, it will be reaching for this website instead! Promised.
