This post came via my email in your honeymoon time machine. I logged into my email with the intention “there is something here that will help me find clarity.” My confusion? Whether I should recommit to an industry I’m no longer in love with by accepting a promotion, or say no.
Thank you for your timeliness!

I quit clarinet and my mom was furious. “You never finish anything!” Sonja “quit it” was a nickname my family called me. I was like you – why torture yourself if you didn’t want to do it??? I never understood why you HAD to finsh what you started. It caused me a lot of tears, anger, and depression as a kid. Now my mom says she understands and agrees with me. It was just the way she was raised and it stuck with her. It never stuck with me and to this day I still have feelings of guilt that hover in the background.

I have a job that I hate but it’s 1/3 my monthly income w possible commissions and I see it as a chance for financial freedom. AND I HATE IT. I thought I should just tough it out.
I am now committed to taking this job on with integrity AND creating a plan to leave the job by replacing that income with other freelance. I’m seeing that if I am not free then my finances don’t even matter.
THANK YOU and welcome home.

This post is perfectly timed for me as I am feeling deeply like I am done with something big and have been inching towards beginning something new. It is not easy to let go of something big…to step away from the security and comfort it brought you even though it didn’t feel right. However if I continue to do it I know I will grow more and more unhappy. Therefore I need to quit. Quitting something most definitely doesn’t mean that we are giving up, it just means that we are brave enough to step away from what we know isn’t for us. Thank you for your words!

I got what I thought was my “dream job” four months ago, and now it’s a nightmare. I don’t sleep well and am stressed all the time, and even though I know it’s like being in a bad relationship, I can see SO MUCH POTENTIAL. Sigh. I am with you on this so much, and yet, next month, we start paying a mortgage and my credit card just got declined. I can’t quit yet, but if I “quit” in my mind and heart, then I really will be miserable.
Rock and hard place, and yet, maybe I can “quit” the structure I’m in right now and re-invent. Thank you!!!!
