They really mean: “It’s not worth it.” As in, it’s not worth re-prioritizing my life, not worth the risk, not worth what I’ll have to give up to get this, not worth raising my standards to get this.
Do you agree? Yey or Nay?
One thing I’ve learned up to this point in life is that the mind has a memory. And it’s damn smart; it “subconsciously” recognizes patterns. Once the patterns become a habit, it’s hard to stop. It requires extra mental strength to break the habit.
