…I am ready to throw in the… (towel).
…I am at the end of my…(rope).
…I am just a bundle of…(nerves).
…I am at my wits…(end).
…I feel like resigning from the human…(race).
…I am in over my…(head).
How did you do? If you answered “towel,” “rope,” “nerves,” “end,” “race” and “head,” give yourself an “A.” And take a vacation. Most of us have used these phrases at one time or another in our hurried lives (4). Never forget that peace is an “inside job.”
