Unfortunately, there’s a stigma about quitting in today’s society. Our tendency is to stay the course, however off-track or misguided it may be.
The word quitter has some very negative connotations: Merriam-Webster defines it as “a person who gives up easily or does not have the courage or determination to finish a task.” And because our culture values persistence and tenacity so highly, the idea of quitting as a valuable tool to living well seems counter intuitive.
But it doesn’t have to be.
Once you understand your personal propensities on quitting, you’re more likely to consider your options based on their current and potential future outcomes. That keeps you from ruminating and getting stuck. Neither of which are helpful.

I try to leave no relationship on bad terms. It literally eats me alive. Like, I constantly think of it. There’s not one person I’ve met in life that I can’t call up right now and everything will be good. You know what happens when you put your pride aside and do right by people??? You sleep really well at night. And you know what it feels like to sleep well at night with no worries or concerns? Amazing. But I think that’s why I’m also scared to get too close to people....because like, I just don’t want to upset anyone ya know? Because I feel like I’m this big ball of imperfections and not good enough for the people around me. I’ve always felt like that which is why I legit only have 6 real true friends in my life. 6 people who I talk to everyday. And they’ve been my friends since grade school. They understand me, they know when to ignore me and when not to...lol (I love y’all fellas!!!) I’m scared to make new friends and get close to people. I feel so misunderstood....like maybe I legit have a problem..or maybe their mind isn’t elevated enough to understand my thoughts. It’s all weird to me. People scare me in general. IN THE GYM IM SUPERMAN!!! Come talk to me and I’m more confident than a viagra penis but in my normal life....not so much. 🤷🏾♂️ ___________________________________________
