I Quit

I got this from a friend who got it from a friend that got it from a friend...(you follow???) And I love it...so I'm posting it here to share it with others. Good words to live by. Need more people to follow these rules and guidelines. Real talk!!!

1. Quit arguing with people about the same old foolishness! Respect their position and keep it moving!

2. Quit telling people your secrets when you know they are not going to keep them! And if you keep telling them, then quit getting mad when they tell your secrets!

3.. Quit trying to pull people on your journey who don't want to travel with you. Either they believe in you and value you...or they don't!

4. Quit complaining about things you can't and won't change!

5. Quit gossiping about other people! Minding our own business should be a full time job!

6. Quit blaming each other for things that in the big picture aren't going to matter three weeks from now! Talk solutions...and then implement them!

7. Quit eating things you know are not good for you! If you can't quit...eat smaller portions!

8. Quit buying things when we know we can't afford them! If you don't have self control, then quit going to the stores! Quit charging things, especially when you don't NEED them!

9. Quit staying in unhealthy relationships! It is not okay for people to verbally or physically abuse you! So quit lying to yourself! It is not okay to stay in the marriage for the children! Ask them and they will tell you that they really would prefer to see you happy and that the misery you and your spouse/partner are living with is affecting them!

10. Quit letting family members rope you into the drama! -Start telling them you don't want to hear it! Quit spreading the drama! Quit calling other relatives and telling them about your cousin or aunt! Go back to #5 minding your own business should be enough to keep you busy!

11. Quit trying to change people! IT DOESN'T WORK! Quit cussing people out when you know that they are just being the miserable and jealous people that they are!

12. Quit the job you hate! Start pursuing your passion. Find the job that fuels your passion BEFORE you quit!

13. Quit volunteering for things that you aren't getting any personal fulfillment from anymore! Quit volunteering for things and then failing to follow through with your commitment!

14. Quit listening to the naysayers! Quit watching the depressing news if you are going to live in the doom and gloom of it all!

15. Quit making excuses about why you are where you are or why you can't do what you want to do!

16. Quit waiting on others to give you the answers...and start finding the answers for yourself! If what you are doing isn't working for you...then quit it!

17. Quit settling and start making your dreams a reality!- Quit being afraid and START LIVING YOUR LIFE! CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT! If you want something different than what you have had in the past...you must quit doing what you have done before and DO something different! JUST QUIT IT ....... and START DOING something to create the experience you want!

"Life is short, but there is always time enough for courtesy and kindness."

Not what you thought huh?

I love this post!!
7 and 10 really apply to me right now. I started applying 11 a while ago.. all these little things really cant slow you down and sometime you dont even realise it.
I have been having problem with my brother always tryin to control my life and constantly having negative remarks, and criticising everything i do and i was thinking, no he is my older bother and i was too afraid to talk back, but before i knew it i was falling into deep depression and always giving up on things because i thought i wasnt good enough.. now i have limited contact with him.. it does hurt sometimes, but that was really the best thing to do..

Thanks for sharing this :)

Sometimes you have to distance yourself from family in order to make things better. Yea it hurts, but family is still your family even if it is from a distance. Glad things have come around for you! :-)
