✴️ Keep going.
Even though we may feel there is no possible way out of our situation or we just so disappointed with ourselves we cannot move forward, Buddhism teaches we should never ever give up. Why?
Each day we move forward is a day that we have won over ourselves and our negativity. Plus, our true victory might be close at hand.
Buddhist philosopher Daisaku Ikeda writes: “When facing adversity, we may think we’ve reached our limit, but actually the more trying the circumstances, the closer we are to making a breakthrough. The darker the night, the nearer the dawn. Victory in life is decided by that last concentrated burst of energy filled with the resolve to win.” -The New Human Revolution, vol. 22, p. 160.
