We’ve all been there, our morning alarm is telling us that it’s time to get up and you immediately think – It can’t be that time already, and your brain proceeds to think about all the things you would rather be doing. Personally, once I was up and out the door I would forget this feeling but slowly my thoughts grew negative for my job entirely. When asked about the reasons for resigning from my role – It was very difficult to give a clear picture as many factors went into the decision.
Lack of new things to learn
Workplace stress harming mental health
Neglecting my own personal health
No work/life balance
Change in career aspiration
General feeling of unhappiness
I really loved this post! The reasons you left are such good ones, especially your focus on stress and how it really hurts our mental health. I had to make some big changes too this year so I could try to be less stressed and happier. Great post! xx Brynnie
Thank you so much for reading Brynnie! I feel so different – genuinely happy & excited for the future. I think the role took such a huge toll on my emotions, leaving has had such a huge impact already. xxx
I understand why you left. I am lucky enough to love my work and be able to have a balance between personal life / work. But if I lose that I won’t hesitate to reconsider. Stress at work has an impact on health and should be taken seriously. Good luck for your next step
Thank You! Definitely, I hate to think where I would be mentally + emotionally in future if I had stayed. It is sad as one of the company values emphasises looking after it’s staff, yet so many people are leaving for the same reasons I have.
