Opinion | It’s Quitting Season

It’s been a brutal few years. But we’ve gritted through. We’ve spent time languishing. We’ve had one giant national burnout. And now, finally, we’re quitting.

We are quitting our jobs. Our cities. Our marriages. Even our Twitter feeds.

And as we argue in the video above, we’re not quitting because we’re weak. We’re quitting because we’re smart.

It echoes what the 18-year-old singer Olivia Rodrigo expresses so profoundly when she laments, “I’m so tired that I might quit my job, start a new life, and they’d all be so disappointed, ’cause who am I if not exploited?” Perhaps it’s fitting that younger Americans like Ms. Rodrigo and the extraordinary Simone Biles are barely old enough to rent a car but they are already teaching us about boundaries. They’ve seen enough hollowed-out millennials to know what the rest of us are learning: Don’t be a martyr to grit.
