How do you know when to give up on someone?

How do you know when to give up on someone who is an old friend but is also someone who is reckless and cruel to themselves or on a parent that you cannot parent or on your partner at school who hasn’t done any work yet for your project, or on a person you want to be with but might not want to be with you. . .  How do you know?

We’re taught to never give up — on our goals, our dreams, our lives. And I agree wholeheartedly that we should never give up on those things. But what about people? What about the friends or family or loved ones in our lives that we care about or perhaps even once cared about? What about them? Do we keep trying with them, too, never to even consider giving up on them?
