no way out - gotta keep going

It may take years for you to experience the results of your efforts in Avodat HaShem, but be sure, if you stick to it, you will see results.

Rebbe Nachman explains that even the feeling that you have grown more distant from HaShem is really a sign that you are making vast progress.

Even stronger though, is this beautiful argument: When you feel like you aren't getting anywhere and you haven't even begun to draw close to HaShem then (1) Either you are actually close, and it's the yetzer trying to make you give up on your avodah, or (2) if you are really so far away from HaShem, then every little act you do makes so much progress!

(Likkutei Moharan II:48)
