I don’t agree with the quitting statement, it’s a really unhealthy view. People should quit – relationships that are making them unhappy, jobs that are stressing them out, ‘friends’ that drain their energy, hobbies that don’t bring enjoyment. One of the delights of getting older is that I’m much more prepared to quit – I’ve just quit working and couldn’t be happier!
Absolutely and yet the message that if you quit, you fail is everywhere. Took my son to the Bear Grylls centre in Birmingham and there is a great big poster – “never quit, never give up”. No wonder so many people struggle with their mental health.
