Why Never Give Up is a really bad advice…

”Winners never quit and quitters never win?”

Am I weak, because I decided to give something up ?
Sometimes you’ve got to stick with something, even through tough times. But sometimes you need the courage to give up, to let go. Why is it so hard for us to leave existing situations and move on to something new – even when we’re miserable.

Let's be honest: change is good! Right?

Society stigmatizes people who give up ("You should try harder", "It’s your fault!", "You just need some time to adjust, trust me.").

That’s how I see it

I am not trying to say that we shouldn’t even try. Life is a series of peaks and valleys and there is no shame in admitting: „I am having a bad day. I seem to have a lot of those.“
Maybe it's better to occasionally evaluate if it still makes sense what we are doing. Should you change your University course if you are unhappy in it or regretting entirely your University choices ? Is it healthy for YOU to stay in a toxic relationship because you don’t want to be alone (there is a big difference between being alone and being lonely) ?

There should be zero shame in giving up a fight you can’t win or in dropping a goal that no longer works for you. Giving up can be the sign of a mature mind.
