Dear friend, never give up

It's only been a few weeks since we were all drinking to our new years resolutions, but now you're feeling burnt out. You feel like you've failed in keeping your resolutions, and maybe you're failing at juggling everything that life is throwing at you right now. That's okay, we all feel that way sometimes. Just please, please promise me you won't give up.

My friend, your failures don't define you, and they never will. You are more that the times you messed up! Even the best athlete will lose races, and even the best footballer will miss the goals from time to time. Your failures don't define you; the way you handle yourself after you fail does. Please don't beat yourself up about the times you haven't gotten 100% at everything. Be gentle on yourself, and don't give up. Pick yourself up from the fall, and make a comeback as a stronger, better you, ready to achieve your goals and reach your dreams.

My friend, you are stronger than you think. I know you look in the mirror and see someone who will never achieve their dreams, but that is not the real you, and it's not the you that I see. One setback, not matter how small or huge, is never going to be enough to stop you from achieving your goals. Neither are 10, or ever 1,000. You are a warrior, so please recognise this, and don't give up. You have the strength to achieve great things, so please don't put it to waste. 

My friend, you might have opposition. You might have opposition, because you are such a strong-willed person, who always proves themselves. You were never known as someone who is weak and gives up, so please don't ever even consider giving up just because some people are too narrow-sighted to see the bigger picture of your destined success. Prove yourself to the world, and to yourself. Please never give up, because that is the only time that you will truly fail.

Finally, my beautiful, strong friend, I want to let you know that I am always here for you. I will be here to push you on and encourage you, to celebrate with you, and to hold you and support you. No matter what happens, I will always be by your side... even if you do give up.
