I have no easy answer for this one. If you're looking for one from me you can quit reading now.
When things are going against you endlessly, you can do one of two things:
- Give up.
- Keep fighting
Now, remember, we're talking things going endlessly against you, like they're never going to turn around. If it's just a tough stretch, then #2 is your easy choice. But endlessly going against you, you've got to give #1 a fair hearing anyway. Because we're not here to be tortured by endless disappointment. What would be the point of that? No, we have intelligence and dignity enough to turn down that scenario.
But it's like I said earlier, I have no easy answers for this one.
