Does the idea of quitting a job or a hobby make you anxious? Is there something you are still doing that no longer serves you, but you’re sticking with it because of what other people might think about you?
Deb McCollum returns for a girlfriend chat about quitting and how liberating it can be. We grow up with so many negative connotations around the concept of quitting. We tend to avoid quitting things because we have internalized the idea that this shows vulnerability or causes others to look down on us. People grow over time and what used to serve us may not anymore. Therefore, it is important to give yourself permission to move onto new things that will better fit into your lifestyle and bring you more happiness.
Tune into today’s episode of Self-Love for Breakfast to learn why it doesn’t reflect poorly on you as a person if you choose to quit something that is no longer serving you. Learn how empowering it is to recognize that if something isn’t for you anymore, you have the ability to stop doing it.
- “No one’s mad at you, and if they are, it’s fine. They can be mad.” (12:25-12:29 | Deb)
- “I think we’re moving into an era and it’s really exciting to see people owning that they just don’t want to freaking do something anymore. You deciding that this was no longer for you doesn’t mean anything bad about you.” (17:37-17:56 | Deb)
- “As a society, we attach to identities and run with them….But we grow and change and evolve over time, so there’s going to be a point where an identity that felt really freaking good just doesn’t fit anymore.” (26:25-26:49 | Chrystal)
- “Quitting is okay. It’s okay to quit. You’re not the same person you were 10 minutes ago.” (30:00-30:08 | Chrystal)
