A collection of the best ‘when you feel like giving up’ quotes that’ll lift your spirits and remind you that you are strong enough to overcome any obstacles life throws at you.

It can be difficult to keep trying especially when life seems to keep hitting us with one problem after another, one failure after another, or one heartache after another, without barely even giving us the chance to breathe and stand up.

During those tough moments, I know how easy it is to feel like giving up is our only option. I know how easy it is to believe that we are just not good enough to turn our lives around and make our dreams a reality so we might as well just give up.

I’m definitely no stranger to that feeling. When I was at the lowest point of my life, every day I felt like I couldn’t breathe from the problems that I had to face, I wanted to throw my hands up and just scream ‘I give upʼ.

I thought that I was not strong enough to push through and turn my life around for the better, but I was wrong.

Because here’s the thing, when we are going through difficult seasons it’s easy to forget just how strong and brave we actually are. It’s easy to question our capabilities and start doubting ourselves.

But one thing I’ve learned from hitting rock bottom is, we are strong enough to get through anything. You have within you this invaluable strength that will push you through any obstacles and challenges that you will face.

Believe in yourself and in what you can do.

If you want to change your life and improve it for the better, know that you might face obstacles that will test you along the way, the important thing is you keep believing in yourself and remember that you are so much stronger than you give yourself credit for.

Don’t give up. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. You will get there.

Whenever you feel low and defeated read these when you feel like giving up quotes below to give you the encouragement that you need to keep going.
