The term terminate is from early 15c., "bring to an end," from Latin terminatus, past participle of terminare "to mark the end or boundary," from terminus "end, limit."
It is important to know when to bring a task, project, friendship, etc. to an end. It is difficult to say "no." We want to succeed. We want to challenge ourselves. At a certain point it is time to end. The end starts a new beginning. Do not fear the end. Look around corners.
