Quote of the Week- ‘And if it gets rough, it’s time to get rough’


Who better to say it than the all-girl group Haim? In their song ‘Falling’, the three sisters explore how it is so easy to give in to something difficult. Whether that is an essay where you are miles away from the word count or another stress-related challenge, we can all resonate with this feeling.

However, despite pressure to give up, their empowering stance to accept that ‘if it gets rough, it’s time to get rough’ serves as a reminder to simply accept the obstacle that is in our way and go through with it.

I don’t think that such challenges should be avoided. Just because they are a big test of our faith to cope with them shouldn’t mean that we should go with the easy option of not doing them in the first place. That sense of feeling after rising to that difficulty is definitely worth all the strength you took to start the challenge in the first place and all the hard work it took to complete it.
