Knowing When To Quit

The Intrepid Mompreneur left a big law firm after 3 years to launch her own business; has left a marriage with two kids; and walked away from her own million dollar a year law business. Now she’s telling us how to know when it’s time to leave:

  1. The pain of staying is greater than the potential pain of leaving
  2. You are staying for the other person because it makes them happy (or you believe it does)
  3. The pain you are avoiding by not leaving is the guilt you’ll feel by leaving
  4. You’ve resigned yourself to a life without sex and decided your kids’ happiness is more important than your sex life
  5. You are staying because you “should” be happy, but you aren’t.

In 4, substitute “sex” and “kids’ happiness” for something more fitting to the situation you’re considering. The rest, I would keep the same.
