Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one but that does not mean that it is the path to avoid, only that doing the right thing can be difficult. It requires less effort to steal from your neighbor than to get a job and work to earn what you want but that doesn't mean that you steal from your neighbors just because it is easier. When you work hard and sacrifice to reach your goals and stay on the right path the sense of accomplishment and pride that you will find at the end of this path can not be achieved if you chose an easier path just to avoid hardship. It is human nature to value something more when it required an effort from you to get, and when you choose the right path even though it is harder you will appreciate where you end up even more.
As you travel through life you will find many paths and intersections, and you will be required to make a choice each time. You can choose the path that is easiest, you will know it because many people have taken it before you, or you can choose the path that is right regardless of how easy or hard it is. When you choose to do what is right each time you will be greatly rewarded, both during your life here on earth and in the next one when you finally move on. When you pick the right path your conscience is always clear.
