I quit my job today! Don’t know what I am going to for sure, I just know that by quitting I instantly improved the quality of my life.
I honestly think that fear of quitting a bad job is one of the main sources of unhappiness at work. Hating your job is bad enough but if you also feel that there is no way out, no matter how badly they treat you, then things become much, much worse. Conversely, knowing that you are free to quit and find something else makes a bad job situation easier to bare. But only if you’re willing to exercise that freedom and actually leave that job. Which way to few people do.
Kudos to Stephan for doing it!
