What is the difference between ‘to surrender’ or ’to give-up’?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Don’t worry about surrender just relax and feel at home.
When you are angry or frustrated you say, ‘I give up’.

But when you say, ‘well this is very important but I can’t do anything about it. Let the divine take over. Let a higher power take care of this.’

With this feeling when you relax, you may call it surrender.
