Giving up is when you have a chance to change things, but you think it’s too difficult or not worth the trouble or just stop pursuing something and just give up on the spot.
Moving on is when you realize that you can’t change things or that it’s better that you don’t try any longer giving up or failure isn’t the best option. Moving on is another thing, moving on as in that you wouldn’t look back to the past and that you would be more successful than failure.
I can’t tell you why the people that have meant the most to me pop up at the weirdest times. But I have a feeling in my heart that those people are meant to be in my life, because no matter how long we don’t talk, no matter how much we argue, things go back to normal no matter what.
Every relationship has it’s ups and downs. You have fights. You have arguments. There’s always going to be some sort of problem the two of you have to face and deal with together. But the thing is, that’s what being with someone is all about. The Journey you two are taking side by side. What makes a relationship last, is actually the commitment and the effort it takes for you to go through all of the hardship with the person even when you know it wasn’t going to be easy.
“When you are in a relationship, you are aware that it might end. You might grow apart, find someone else, simply fall out of love. But a friendship isn’t a zero-sum game, and as such, you assume that it will last forever, especially an old friendship. You take its permanence for granted, which might be the very thing so dear about it.”—Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed (via simply-quotes)
