53 Hang in There Quotes

Everyone needs a little encouragement every now and then. We need our friends and family to give us strength, pick us up when we are down, and believe in us when we don’t believe in ourselves. Whether it is a hug, a shoulder to cry on, or a few kind words; it always brightens our day to know someone is there for us.

When things get touch, everyone you talk to tells you to, “Hang in there,” or “Things will get better.” I use to have many quotes in my cubicle when I was a Customer Service Representative. Some quotes were about kids, love, strength, hope, and some were funny. Looking at those kept me positive when I was on the phone with a difficult or angry customer.

What better way to stay positive and keep you out of your funk than to have some hang in there/inspirational quotes to read? Keep your chin up and make sure to note your favorite quotes in this list.

All of us, at one time or another, in our lives will need inspiration. We will need encouragement and hope. We will need someone to tell us, in their own way, to hang in there. No one’s life is perfect, no one gets everything that they wish for or want. We all have hard times to get through, some more than others. We all handle diversity and tough situations differently; some are positive and some are negative. It is all in how we were brought up, what we were taught as children and young adults. Nothing in life is easy or free, but you do have many sources that will get you through any tough times that you may face.

We all have someone that is there for us whether it is friends, family, co-workers, or even strangers.  Someone to hold us, comfort us, give us words of encouragement, or be harsh to make us realize that we can get through whatever is being thrown at us. All of us have been there for someone in our family or in our circle of friends who have gone through a tough situation. It is what we do for the people that we care about and love. We don’t want to see anyone hurt or suffer. We want to make them feel better, we want to wipe away their tears, we want to beat up whomever hurt them. It is all instinct when we love someone.
