In my Opinion

The words of a coward: ‘I give up’

How many times have we all felt like, and said, “I am just going to give up?” Believe me I have said it many times. Then there is the old cliché, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Those words are hard to remember when something bad happens and you just want to cover up your head and stay in bed.

Young and old alike, we experience a lot of bumps in life. For young teens it could be, “Gee, I just don’t fit in.” Or it could be a break-up of a relationship that you felt was “the real thing.”

As we progress in life, we face the tragedy of losing family members and acquaintances. While some fail at business, others fail at college.
