In this life, we all do things we shouldn’t do, but if nothing else we should quit the following ones. While times can be hard, and we all go through ups and downs, we have to learn to make the most of the things before us. 

The more we let go of the things listed below, the more we can grow into the people we want to be. We can become happier and more content in life and perhaps even in love. While some of them might sound small, they are all enormous in our paths along this journey. 

7 Things We Should All Quit Right Now:

1. Quit closing yourself off from change.

Change can be good if we’re open to it. The more you close yourself off from it, the worse you’re going to feel. Because we cannot avoid it, we should be flowing with it as best we can.

For readers looking to adapt to and embrace change, Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life” by Spencer Johnson offers a simple parable that reveals profound truths about change.

2. Quit refusing to chase your dreams. 

We should all be chasing our dreams, that in a sense is what we’re here for. Sure, you might not think you’re capable, but you are. It’s never too late.

To inspire and guide readers in pursuing their dreams, The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho is a timeless story that explores the theme of finding one’s destiny and following one’s dreams.

3. Quit letting toxic people take away your happiness.

For those struggling with toxic relationships, Toxic People: 10 Ways Of Dealing With People Who Make Your Life Miserable” by Lillian Glass provides practical advice on identifying and handling toxic individuals.

4. Quit looking too far ahead.

5. Quit trying to please everyone around you.

You cannot please everyone, sorry but you need to let that sink in. The more you try the more disappointed you’re going to be. Sometimes we have to just stop and think about ourselves.

6. Quit beating yourself down.

I know, it might not always be easy but you need to be building yourself up. Treat yourself how you treat others. Don’t be your own worst enemy.

7. Quit living in the past.

The past cannot be changed and at some point, you have to let go of it. The more you live in the past the more you’ll hold yourself back. You deserve more, go out and get it.
