“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 for someone to quit? Whether it’s a job, a relationship or a dream?” via The Daily Post
Quitting is the act of abandoning a prior commitment, of giving up on a goal, an activity or a plan. Usually it’s frown upon, but it may at times be necessary.
Giving, however, up is not necessarily a bad thing, it depends on the circumstances.
Many times people give up for the wrong reasons: abandoning a goal, job, relationship or dream because it’s different than what you imagine, because you don’t believe you can do it or because it’s harder than what you taught it would be is not a valid reason. After all even if all these “reasons” are combined they still don’t change why you set out to do it in the first place.
But if the reason why you’re doing it changes then giving up is okay. If you no longer have a reason to do what you set out, if it no longer helps you achieve your goals then it’s okay to quit.
When things get hard, and don’t quite reach your expectations you need to look at the big picture and remember why you set to do what ever it is your doing in the first place.
