How to Walk Away from Something That Isn’t Working for You

Ms. Career Girl

From a young age we are taught to, “Finish what you start.” Keep your eye on the prize.” And, “clean your plate.” What happens when your desires change mid-creation, mid-race or, horror of horrors – mid-meal? Do you stay because, “Well, I’ve put this much time into it, might as well finish it,” or some version of this? Do you keep going because to not finish is accepting failure ?
