They tell you college is all about trying new things, but they don’t tell you how to quit the ones that don’t work out.
Since August 2012, I have been in a sorority. I have made some of my most wonderful friendships and memories there, but the time I have spent in that building with those people has come to an abrupt and difficult end.
It has hurt me in unique, intimate ways that are hard to vocalize. Losing a sisterhood that was supposed to be "(mine) for a lifetime" because they refused to celebrate and support my success with me cuts so deeply.
I’m here to talk about a bigger issue, though.
Quitting is hard, and knowing when to quit is half the battle. There is no honor in ill-timed or passive quitting due to apathy.
