The option to come back.

When you’re trying something new, something creative, and you want to have something to fall back on, something you can come back to, a safe spot, an option move back in with your parents, an option to go back to your old job,…
When you get to the hardest point of the thing you’re trying to do, and all you need is to push through, to go pass the deep, you most likely won’t. Because you have that thing to go back to.

If you’re a creative, the option to come back has a negative value.
