Are You On the Verge of Saying, “I Quit!?”

We have all been taught to never quit; never give up; never throw in the towel. In fact, for some, giving up equates to failure. So, is there ever a time when it’s okay to quit? The answer is simple, yes! When we are finding that our soul is becoming depleted, our passion dwindling and our heart is no longer invested, we not only have permission to quit, it’s imperative to our soul that we quit.

Staying in anything that no longer serves our highest good becomes unhealthy. There are times in our life when we must listen deep within and say “I quit!” Knowing when these times are among us may be difficult as we may feel uncertain, afraid, or outright panicked.

Here are 3 key examples to know when it’s perfectly okay to say, “I Quit!” Signs from the Universe

The Universe will give us signs to show us that it is time to pull away from a situation. We may start to see the symbols they created for us. It’s noticing these signs that will help us recognize that it is time to “quit” and move on.

For example, we give 110% to our employer. We are committed, loyal, and invested in the company’s overall success. Yet, we have been continuously denied a raise and our boss doesn’t give us an opportunity for advancement. We are finding it more and more difficult to have our ideas heard.

Monday comes and we cringe when the alarms sounds off. We begin to feel defeated. This is a sign that it is time to move on and find an opportunity that allows us to expand our wings and be appreciated for what we do have to offer.

Staying for the Wrong Reasons

We are no longer happy in our relationship. We may be staying in a relationship because we feel it is the best we are going to get, or that all relationships have its ups and downs, or that we simply don’t want to be alone. These can all be legitimate reasons, but if we feel down and unhappy more than we feel love and support, this is the time to move on.

We have talked to our partner and expressed what we need from the relationship. Yet, they are being uncooperative, or that they only try to compromise for a short period of time before the cycle repeats itself. This is the time to realize that you deserve a more fulfilling relationship. Choosing to love ourselves enough to leave, rather than settling in an unhealthy or unhappy relationship, is a wonderful reason to say “I quit!”

Fear of Failure

We want a career change. Knowing it’s okay to change our mind about what we want to do in life, but when you have a degree in a particular field and have been working in that industry for any length of time, you may feel that you cannot “start over” in a new career. We tell ourselves, “It’s too much work,” or “I am too old,” or “What if I don’t succeed”?

However, if we have a calling that keeps pulling us in a different direction, it is time to listen to it. Knowing the universe will work it out for us is the first step. Giving ourselves the pink slip in our current career to pursue a path that we are passionate about is one of the best reasons to leave an old life behind.

Choosing for the Highest Good

Regardless of where we are in life, we are always allowed to make choices that are for our highest good. Knowing when to hold our boundaries and quit when it is no longer in alignment with our soul is the best way to continuously grow and connect to our higher consciousness.
