Everyone has a dream their greatest desires and work hard to achieve them. Sometimes, the closer you are to your goal, the more you realise it is not what you thought it was.
You quit college to pursue your entrepreneurial dream, only to burn out and experience depression. You move to your dream home, only to put up with leaky pipes. You seek your perfect partner, only to discover their irreconcilable flaws.
Your dreams or desires doesn't include what goes behind the scenes. You realise that it doesn't fit, it is not what you want anymore. You start asking yourself...
is it okay to quit after all the effort you have put in?
No matter how many hours of sweat or tears, if it doesn't work, let it go. Putting more work into a dream, project or relationship that doesn't give the expected results will be a waste of your time.
If you quit early, you'll be able to pursue other more meaningful opportunities and get the results you are looking for.
Don't waste time on something that doesn't work. Let go and quit.
