Don’t give up

We’ve all had these moments where giving up seems like the only answer.  Living in a foreign country can make this seem like an ongoing struggle.  I would often think that I would never understand the language, the people, or the culture.  It’s normal to feel like this because it’s so far out of your comfort zone.  Anything worthwhile in life will always bring a point of extreme frustration.   That moment when you feel stuck and nothing that you put a great amount effort towards is going anywhere.  This is when you need to say to yourself, “Don’t give up!  Keep on trucking, Susan!!”  Well you wouldn’t say that unless you have the same name, of course.  😉

Whatever it is you are working towards, a new career, a baby, getting a driver’s license, a new house, getting a novel published, learning a new language,  a new business venture, making new friends….oh the list could go on and on.  Just don’t give up on yourself.  I think of the words that this lady, Marie Forleo says “Stay on your game and keep going for your dreams.  Because the world needs that special gift that only you have”.  If you aren’t familiar with her, check her out.  She helps inspire people to move forward on their businesses but her advice also can apply to life.  She is also super hysterical.  I just love her style.  Her tagline is perfect for days when you think you’ve had it.  Remember you don’t know what might come next;  the right friend, the perfect job opportunity, the right publisher, or the house of your dreams.  Just don’t give up!

About Self-Love life coach

I moved to the Netherlands to be with my husband. After several years living here and getting through some struggles and obstacles, I decided I would help other expats work through these same things by becoming a life coach. I offered these services under the name of the Life Coach for Expats. Some time later I've taken a deeper look into where my coaching can be most effective. Now you can find me as Susan de Vriend, Self-love life coach at I am the coach who coaches with compassion to support Business Moms find their inner confidence & voice allowing a profound and joyful life to be created on purpose.
