Sometimes leaving something as it is doesn't make you a quitter or a loser.
Sometimes it just shows that it's not good for your mental health. Nothing is greater than that. You cannot keep pushing yourself and draining your energy like anything just to stick to something and not become a loser. You don't have to be a hero always and fight for things that are fundamentally wrong for you. My main point here is: you won't be a loser if you quit for your own mental health.
I have left quite a few things like that. I switched career options, streams, left people, situations and whatever wasn't good for my mental health. Quite obviously, I was questioned and blamed upon for such actions, was labelled with stuff but deep down, I knew what was good for me. If I didn't belong somewhere, if it felt fundamentally wrong, I chose to quit and that seemed best. I'm not asking you to be a quitter, or quit things just like that. Think, ponder and then decide. Professional careers should be switched only if they're fundamentally wrong for you, people and situations should be left if they're too toxic for you and your growth, and same way, there should be enough solid reasoning for quitting something.
Sometimes, we face low phases where little things are difficult for us. For example if you start learning driving a car when you're facing a very low phase of depression and anxiety. That time, going for it, if makes you even more anxious, you can choose to delay it and attempt when you're better with your mental state.
I left an internship I did some 4 years ago. Too much work pressure, corporate politics, behavioural issues of people etc etc. Me being just a teenager that time, and not in a good state due to other problems I was facing, I chose to leave it. Turned out many repurcussions but now when I see it from a matured perspective, I realize quitting is not a sign of weakness, it is sometimes necessary, to keep you sane and going for other phases of your life.
