    Last day at my job today.. I have been there about 3 years and hated it. So on one hand I’m happy I made the decision to leave, but still have a lot of negative emotions about it, like self-blame, doubt, anxiety etc. Where’s the relief I was expecting?! So now I gotta figure out what to do with my life from here 🙄

    I have found that it takes a while getting over any job (or any major commitment really). I, and probably many others too, tend to go back over things, re-thinking them – wondering if I could have done things better.  Maybe the sudden lack of stress is giving you the time to really think about it now? When I finished my last job I made quite a few changes in my life as I realised how negative several other things were too!

    Hi Jen, good luck in what you decide. I have had some bad jobs too. Some of them I had to leave especially when I was single as guys would keep trying to chat me up even when a boyfriend was on the scene. It was tedious, once again good luck and hope you get a great job. x

    Hi Mikki and Jen,

    thanks for your replies. Yeah I completely agree, it’s always pretty hard for me too to move on from something I’ve been at for a while, whether it be a job, a friendship that ends or whatever. And I definitely tend to overthink things 🙂

    Jen, what kind of changes did you make in your life?

    Hey join the club I think we all overthink things, sometimes it is better to go with your gut instinct and try as hard as you can.

    Very true! 😊

    I’m glad you’ve quit an unhappy job. Hating a job is very good reason to leave: even if you don’t know where you’re going with your life yet. You will find somewhere new, but it takes patience to find just the right job. Do follow your heart and find a job similar to your passions in life, whether that be computing or painting or writing: you get the gist.

    Good luck with your future endeavors, as corny as that sounds!

    Jen, what kind of changes did you make in your life?

    The changes came when I was less stressed and I came to realise how submissive I was. There were several friends who really were not. I did not reject them as such, just became more confident in myself. Some have gone, some have not. Likewise with a small charity I worked with. The chairman (who really dominates things) tried to push me towards things I was not confident with. It was very much like my job, and I know from the experience of others that he would not take no as an answer. I decided that it was not doing me any good, mentally, so I quit.

    I actually work for a charity, SpinningJen. I’ve been there 10 years now. Since you were unhappy with the charity, you were right to quit. Being submissive isn’t good, as I am finding out [although not with the charity]. People will push and push unless you push back with force. I assume you found a job you are happy with now? Your happiness is always paramount.

    Thanks mikki. I am not totally sure where things are going as yet, but it is far less of an issue than when I was younger

    If you’re unhappy with your job, the best thing to do is to leave.
