I really am unsure of what exactly that means.

I guess perhaps throwing your life into addiction would qualify but aside from that how does one give up in practical terms?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

 What do you mean?  Giving up on life?  Giving up on a dream?  Giving up on a relationship?  What sort of giving up, exactly?  I think the answer depends on what sort of giving up you have in mind.

I guess I didn't see the post this is a spin-off of because I don't know what you mean.

People say "Youre strong, many would have given up"  It has been said to me and I have seen it said to others.

Thats the context I am referring to.

emotionally give up?  or physically?

emotionally.....give yourself over to just existing, where noone matters, you eat, you wake up....but you really arent here.

physically....suicide

Quoting survivorinohio:

In that context....suicide.

I dont know for certain....but the thought of any of my children dying has made me think I would give up on life.  I dont think Im that strong mentally and I dont think I would be worth having around (see my other post about emotionally being vacant)  for my other kids.

Hey now!! I know what you are talking about ;-)

Excepting your circumstances and not trying to move up or forward. Doing nothing to better your situation.

Suicide.
