I don't believe in quitting ... as a rule, that is.
I believe in finishing what I start, in seeing projects through to the end, and receive great satisfaction from completing a task.
Sometimes, however, quitting isn't quitting--it's saying to yourself, "I'm not going to continue bashing my head against this brick wall."
How do you know the difference between quitting and being smart?
Personally, I think knowing the difference has nothing to do with your own convenience and/or preference and everything to do with logic. As in, what would you advise someone else to do if they were in your shoes.
Typical example involves a relationship that's going nowhere. You like the guy, but not as much as you once did. Stuff is starting to bug you about him, or stuff is coming to light that you didn't realize before. If your best friend were dating this guy and going through what you're going through, what would you think is in her best interest to do?
The scenario changes, however, if you're married to the guy and not simply dating him. At least it does for me.
What's your take on quitting? And not just about relationships, but in general.
