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.

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.
