While there are many easily attainable things or activities in life that people enjoy, all but too many give up on forming a stronger and ultimately more beneficial relationship to what they love because of the inconvenience and stress this may induce.
Whether it is a dream job, business opportunity, or the girl that seems to have gotten away, you should never give up on any opportunity that involves what you really care about.
The things that really matter to a person will constantly be in his or her head. I know that when something is important to me it seems to be on my mind 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

People are creatures of habit. When a person can just give up on what they seemed to care so much about, it shows a lot about their character. One problem or mistake doesn't mean a person's dreams are worthless or impossible to reach.

Ideas come and go everyday. It is important to realize which things in life are worth fighting for and which are only debilitating to your true purpose.
Yes, it may be easy to say, “Eh, fuck it. I don’t need this in my life” and drop whatever it was you were working on, but if something really matters to you, you should never, ever drop it. Never stop chasing your dreams, it's what life is all about.
