Essay About Never Give Up
There once was a girl name Tima. She is the type of girl who will keep it real with you 100% no matter what, prideful, loyal to a fault, headstrong, born to rule, spontaneous, lover at heart, speaks fluent sarcasm, and will knock your lights out in a heartbeat when she feels threatened. She was born on July 1995 and she is a LEO which makes her a LIONESS.! She doesn’t like anything to be forced whatsoever. She doesn’t like forced conversations, forced friendships, or forced interactions. She simply doesn’t force anything at all. If we don’t vibe, we don’t vibe. To her, it didn’t matter what people thought of her. Her focus was never on small talk. She had bigger and better things to do with her life, like be a better woman/ mother than she was yesterday. She didn’t care what people said behind her back because most of them never had the balls to say it to her face anyway. She didn’t care if people believed in her, or if they would just get up and leave her. What she offered was more than good enough and anyone who wanted to walk away from that… Well that’s on them. One morning she woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, against her, or walking right down the middle because they don’t have the balls to pick a side. She was done with anything that didn’t bring her peace. She realized that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn’t a word but a lifestyle. It was this day that her life had changed for the better and it was not because of a man or a job but because she realized that life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.
I have been fighting since I was a child. I am not a survivor; I am a fucking warrior. You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. I started with nothing, now I stop for noting. Everyone wants to eat but few are willing to hunt. Don’t consider my kindness as my weakness. The beast in me is sleeping, not dead. If they stand behind you, protect them. If they stand beside you, respect them. If they stand against you, defeat them. It’s so fucking hard to beat someone who never gives up. Worrying doesn’t take away your troubles, it takes away your strength to fight. No guts. No glory. No legend. No story. We fall. We break. We fail. But then we rise. We heal. We overcome. When you really pay attention, everything is your teacher. I used to cut myself and I am so proud to say, “I used to cut myself,” because my scars tell a story and they are my reminders when life tried to break me but failed. Teach your demons how to roam your mind without damaging your thoughts. Don’t just think about the one million reason why it won’t work out. But think about the ONE reason why it will work out. It’s not how many times you have to try, but what you learn when you try. When I look back on my life, I see pain, mistakes, and heartaches. But when I look in the mirror, I see strength, learned lessons, and pride in myself. One of my favorite talents that I possess is I NEVER GIVE UP, I JUST NEVER QUIT.
You don’t know this new me. I put back my pieces differently… the people who consider you WEAK have not yet noticed the LIONESS hiding behind your eyes, nor the flames inside your soul. Let them think you are WEAK and do what LIONS do best, surprise them when they least expect it. I am not the jealous type; I am just territorial. Jealous is when you want something that’s not yours. Territorial is protecting what’s already yours. Never lie to a LIONESS, she has a natural sixth sense for detecting bullshit and it’s rarely wrong. I will ask you a question I already know the answer to just to see if you’ll lie to me. Mess with me, I’ll let KARMA do its job. Mess with my family, I WILL BECOME karma.! Look into my eyes and you will see how bad I want it. It’s okay to be scared because being scared just means your about to do something really, really brave. When you know who you are, your stillness threatens the enemy. Never be ashamed of a scar life left you with, it just simply means you were STRONGER than whatever tried to bring you down. In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you but the ones who are truly IMPORTANT are the ones who bring you JOY and bring the BEST OUT OF YOU. These kinds of people are rare and amazing people who remind you why it’s all worth it in the end.
I am THANKFUL for EVERYTHING that’s happened in my life so far. The HIGHS, the LOWS, the LESSONS, the BLESSINGS, the SETBACKS, the COMEBACKS, the LOVE, and the HATE, I mean everything. When life puts you in tough situations, don’t say “Why me??” but say “TRY ME.!” Sometimes I want to just give up, but then I remember that I have a lot of motherfuckers to prove wrong. I didn’t come here to PARTICIPATE; I came here to DOMINATE. Be STRONG when you feel WEAK, be BRAVE when you are SCARED, and HUMBLE when you are VICTORIOUS. Never become sad when life pulls you back because LIONS also take ONE STEP BACK when they want to go for a long jump. I am not PERFECT and I don’t claim to be.
