It’s almost always easier to throw in the towel and give up. Trust me, I’ve taken the easy way out plenty in my life. You know what it’s taught me? First, the easy way is boring as shit. Second, when I look back on those decisions, it’s usually with regret that I didn’t stick to my guns. Regretting sucks. Giving up sucks. Stay strong and persevere, and come away with a story you’re proud to tell! Some of these are tongue in cheek, while others are more serious, but they all send the same message.
