Normalize quitting things. It could be school, work, relationships, hobbies, or pretty much anything.

Quitting is often thought of as inherently negative; nobody wants to be called a "quitter". But there are plenty of situations where not only is it reasonable, it's the *best* course of action.

You can drop out college or switch majors when you don't care about the thing you're studying. You can end a relationship when it becomes toxic. You can stop playing a game that you don't enjoy.

We're often taught that quitting, in and of itself, is a bad thing. But it's... just not. It's value neutral.

Now, having the ability and will to stick with something through difficult times is a good trait... IF that thing is worth sticking with in the first place. Plenty of things aren't. Some things will be for some people, and won't be for others.

And if you give something a proper chance and determine that it's not? Then quit! I'm not just saying you can, I'm saying you should!

@MisterBeret but if I quit, I’ll feel like I let people down, including myself.

@KBY30 I totally get that feeling! And of course this is all easier said than done. But being totally honest here? I think I'd rather be a disappointment if it means that I'm doing what makes me happy
