I Didn’t Quit My Job. I Broke Up With It.

It’s been months and I still have trouble saying it:

“I quit my job.”

The word “quit” doesn’t sit well with me. Its connotation insinuates a lack of commitment. It implies that I gave up, failed, or didn’t try hard enough. Yet, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Saying I “quit” is unfair.
