Letting Go Vs. Quitting

Letting Go Vs. Quitting

Letting go has a lot of similarities to quitting, but one big difference.

  • When someone quits it’s generally highly emotional and filled with frustration or anger that something isn’t going as well as they thought.
  • Letting go no longer has an emotional attachment.
  • It’s a moment where you realize this person, thing or situation isn’t serving you anymore, it’s not something you want anymore, and it no longer causes you stress. It’s a feeling and action of peace, of freedom.

Quitting is a bright red faced, loud, screaming toddler while letting go is an old woman with long white hair sitting in a peaceful green garden smiling.

How do you recognize the difference

The only question you need to answer to know the difference : Why am I doing this?

  • When you can really clarify why you’re doing something, why you’re doing it for you, not anyone else, it will either make you realize you need to keep working hard to get what you want and you’re feeling a little moment of wanting to quit or it will make you realize there is no reason why.
  • When you can’t clarify why you’re doing something, it means it’s time to let it go.
