If you are rowing your boat against the main*stream* of society, don't expect it to be smooth sailing. You will be met with choppy waters of resistance that will relentlessly test your devotion to the truth. Continue to row and the waves of ignorance and apathy will get higher and higher...BUT at the same time, your muscles will get STRONGER and STRONGER. If you give up, sure your ride may be smoother but you will be WEAK from lack of resistance and your soul will be lifeless. Step up and do what's RIGHT, not what's EASY.
