Just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean it’s worth it. Just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean you should give up.
I have issues in deciding which route I should take. There are benefits and disadvantages in both and always will be. To choose simply one route would be to open a door onto new possibilities, while also closing it on others. These are opportunities that we perhaps will never know because without consideration we let the door close because a better option came into view. Down even the worst paths lie some kinder, better things that sometimes justify the pain of a bad path.
We could have lived lives we never imagined.
