I won’t give up

So this song.. I won’t give up by Jason Mraz has been stuck in my head for weeks.. I am obsessed. So for those who don’t know the song here are the lyrics. I will post a link to the song at the end.

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not
And who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up
Still looking up.

I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

I know this is a song about love but this can be so much more. It’s about who you were, are and who you have yet to become. We all transition, we grow up, we change and sometimes it requires work to keep things going. Sometimes you let people and places go but it does not mean you quit. There are times we need solitude to figure out who we are and what we want. Even then it may not be the perfect answer.
We all have hopes and dreams, I think the biggest point I am trying to make is DON’T GIVE UP. It’s easy to give up, don’t do it there is more for you, for me, for other people. Put your all into it, it may not happen over night as our lives are complicated but DON’T GIVE UP. You are worth it. Worth fighting. Worth challenging yourself to reach new heights. Worth going out of your comfort zone and discover new and great things.
Sometimes what we want the most doesn’t work, no matter how hard you try. DON’T GIVE UP. Make the best of it and adapt. Maybe it was meant to only be seasonal, maybe it wasn’t meant to be at all. Maybe it was just supposed to be different. No matter what though.. life is tough, skies are rough, you can make it. You can succeed. Maybe not instantly, but you have a lot to learn. Your time will come, be patient.
I hope this helps you as much as it does me. I am still dreaming to this song but it is definitely an inspiration.
