Some people give up because the world has crushed out their will to live, to fight. They have fought so long and so hard only for everything to have come back crashing down on them and they can not take it anymore.

A person can only take so much before they collapse. Some can handle more than others. Exhaustion sets in; mental exhaustion, physical exhaustion… and they just can not go anymore. They keep hearing everyone telling them, “Oh, you can handle this, you can do this.” but they just can’t.

They lack the strength to try. Those encouraging words end up hurting like a bullwhip because you are beating them with “helpful encouragement”.

When they don’t, they further give up because they get told, “Oh, you must just be lazy or like being miserable.” No…. if they could garner the strength to go one more step or try one more time, they would. They are hurting so much already because they feel like they are not meeting expectations and demands of everyone around them.

To give up, it’s a last choice. It means just turning yourself off, going through the motions of being alive but you are dead inside. Your spark is dead. There are people out in the world who are still walking around, working, doing the bare minimum in their life to just get by…. but have been dead since they were young.

The world and the expectations heaped on them killed their spirit and with out that.. we die. Some literally, others figuratively.
