I am almost a LPN, should I continue my education to RN?

I am almost finished with the LPN program and when I take the state boards I will be a LPN. I live on my own and have been working as a waitress part time and taking out loans. It would benefit me to take a break before starting the RN program and working but many people tell me I wont come back if I do that. Most cases people don’t go back to be an RN after they stop apparently? Is this true? What should I do?
