Phrase that kept me from offing myself... Encouragement is for the weak...

You can see in other threads that the f-word was not used as an intensifier.

Yes, the "the fuck" part won't really translate into Latin.

For the rest, in order to choose the right words in translation, I'd need some context and a little more explanations on what you exactly mean with that phrase. In particular, what sort of "encouragement" you're referring to, and in what way you "picked up" the fight.

'you picked' = you wanted it, you chose to engage in it
'fight' = long-term struggle/effort
'encouragement' = cliché motivational nonsense (if I had to guess)
