Unhappy Chances of IM Residency

Hi!

My scores are as follows:
231 - Step 1
236 - Step 2 CK
Step 2 CS - to be taken

I hold a Canadian passport and I am a FMG. I have 4 LoRs: 2 from the US (after 8 weeks of cardiology externship) and 2 from home country (one of which is from a board certified doctor; 6 weeks of nephrology internship and 8 weeks of cardiology internship).
This may sound stupid but should I continue with USMLE? I want to match for internal medicine but it is so competitive. My father bears all the expenses and I don't want to burden him anymore.
