When to quit? How does one decide to throw in the towel? I've been working on an all volunteer board for almost ten years -- and last night was the worst. I proposed 3 proposals that I thought most everyone was behind -- and my compatriots left me hanging in the wind. And the two that disagree with EVERYTHING I think, everything I do -- they had a heyday. I have never been yelled at publicly (or honestly privately) so much in my entire life.
This stupid board has wreaked havoc on my health in the last year and a half -- thus the extreme drop in exercise and the rising of my weight -- AGAIN -- and just causes me all kinds of stress. I've stayed on because I truly care about the cause and the tiny professional staff.
But do I keep hanging on hoping for better? Or do I say, "the hell with it" and just quit?
