Hang In There | Hang On In There

When you ask someone to hang in there, you are asking them not to give up, despite difficulties.

  • Work was difficult, but I hung in there.
  • I had little chance of success; nonetheless I decided to hang on in there.
  • The company is talking about laying people off. I don’t know if I should hang in there or quit.

A sample piece of conversation

A: ‘I’m quitting my job. My boss is very difficult to work with.’
B: ‘I wouldn’t advice quitting. Hang in there. Things will get better.’

The expressions ‘keep going’ and ‘don’t give up’ have very similar meanings.
