When is it OK to QUIT something?
Many cultures frown on people who give up on things. But is it ever good for everyone, involved with the one who quits? Whether it’s a job, a relationship or a dream?
No consideration about anyone’s vices is required, as quitting these is absolutely fine and healthy. Problems and bewilderment comes in life when it’s just a normal and natural situation. Society takes quitters as failures and losers, the people who give up, have no confidence and determination in themselves. But this isn’t the case always.
It commonly happens when people aren’t happy with their jobs. They keep thinking they should quit, but find themselves unable to make the decision. (that brings to my mind, another idea for a blog post: How do you decide, how to decide?). Life’s too short to be miserable and to make everyone around you miserable. You have to think of your physical, emotional, and financial well-being and not care if you’re branded a quitter.
In a relationship, there is no point in taking it along, if you two are not compatible, or share physically or emotionally abused relation. A time comes when people feel it as a burden, and there is no going back to happier part again, then it could be the right call to quit.
A dream could be broken due to countless circumstances. You may be no longer the person you believed yourself to be. The destiny may not be necessarily the same as you envisioned. That does not make you a loser. It happens in life.Quit when your heart tells you it’s time. It’s not a defeat. In fact, you’ll soon realize you did yourself a favor.
When is it OK to quit something?
I say, “As soon as you find yourself asking that question.”
