7 Things You Shouldn’t Be Ashamed To Quit

November 5, 2021

There are no awards for people who spend time suffering or trying to figure things out. Sometimes, it’s ok to quit when the going gets tough, and you no longer want to participate. 

Don’t be ashamed to quit any of these things.

1. School.

If you ever get tired of education and feel like you’re losing your mind, it’s ok to take a break and get yourself together before getting back into it. Easier said than done sha. Especially when you have Nigerian parents as your sole providers.

2. Your job.

It is ok to quit any job that’s trying to kill you. Let your employer do the job themself since they want to kill you over a company that doesn’t belong to you or your father. Even if it’s your father’s company, it’s still ok to quit. 

3. Quit checking your bank account. 

Whatever you saw the last time you checked is what will be there the next time you check. Don’t be ashamed to admit that you are not very rich. Let your bank app rest. 

4. Your relationship.

Heartbreaks are insane, but it’s better to be heartbroken than to be in a relationship that has run its course. Don’t feel any shame choosing your peace. A happier and healthy you is better than thinking of what people are going to say when you make the decision to walk away. 

5. Religion.

Feel free to toss that religion or religious belief to the side. Figure out what you believe in and do it. You are an adult now and should be more intentional about the things you’re invested in. Religion might no longer be your cup of tea, and that’s alright. 

6. Being celibate.

Having sex is better than being celibate (I said what I said). Don’t be ashamed of choosing orgasms over konji.

7. Having sex.

Having sex brings children, and children steal your peace of mind. It makes perfect sense to want to quit having sex. Sex should be banned by the government and should be banned in your life.
