We all have a breaking point were life seems hopeless and the easiest thing to do is to give up. At that moment the world is saying, "Don't try, it's not worth it." And there is agreement with that. We all go through times where we have exhausted our inner resources, and it's time to rest.
There's nothing wrong with taking a breather, getting some fresh air and/or a new perspective. We all need to gather ourselves to persevere. As long as we do persevere and aim to accomplish what we are capable of.
We are capable of pushing ourselves to the limit.
And going beyond that each time we are pushed.
