About this blog; about your situation; about what you feel could really HELP you get through this time in your life (to make the decision – to have the courage to “Just Quit”)

 

  • I want to explore other opportunities and be happy and confident and feel this can’t ahppen while I’m in my current job.
 Monday, Sep 30th 9:17AM
  • I wish I knew what else I really want to do.
Sunday, Sep 29th 12:00AM
  • God and constant contact with my family have been so important. So has the realisation that I really should have just entered academia because I am more than capable of succeeding (I have published papers without even trying while as an undergraduate). I want to be the boss of my own destiny because I trust myself more than I do managers with an ego problem
Saturday, Sep 28th 10:37PM
  • Having my housing tied to my job has been extremely difficult because “home issues” become “work issues.” Living with my coworkers makes it impossible to keep bosses out of the roommate dynamics
Friday, Sep 27th 10:43AM
  • From India, on VISA.I will loose my work visa too if I leave my employer.I will become dependent on my spouse and will not be able to get bac kto work unless someone sponsers my Visa.

  • I am depressed from having to deal with this individual. I too have looked for another job without success. I feel stuck and I want to just quit.

  • I was made redundant at the end of 2012. Initially I was going to take a year off work and travel/cycle around Europe. Losing my job set things back as I was left with no option but to look for another one. Any job will do that’s what I had in mind. I needed an income and save up a bit more for my long awaited trip.
  • So I got myself a new within months after losing my previous one. I’m currently working as a bicycle postal delivery officer! I loved it in the beginning, being outdoor, riding my bike, no boss breathing down your neck. That feeling didn’t last, after my 3 months I got really frustrated. I was alone all day which means I ended up thinking about a lot of things that matters the most.
  • Everyday is a struggle, I didn’t care about the money. All I wanted to do was get my work done as quickly as possible and go home.
  • Now I’m at the point of quitting without another job 🙂
Friday, Sep 20th 1:39AM
  • Thanks for confirming my decision.
Thursday, Sep 19th 4:55PM

Friday, Sep 13th 6:13PM
  • I’m getting close to retirement – want to find something I’ll enjoy doing again – an “encore career” that has meaning. Am afraid that I’ll slip into poverty over time.
Wednesday, Sep 11th 4:19PM
 
  • I love the people at my job, I just feel out of place when I’m there and with everything else going on in my life my job is just another thing on top to worry about that I don’t need

  • I can already imagine the sense of freedom that I will have when I clock in for the very last time, when I see Kevin for the very last time and when I sit at that desk for the very last time.

  • I have been in this field of work for 20years and with this company for only 7 wks and have not been trained. I have spoken to my immediate bosses who ignore my repeated requests for training. I have spoken to their boss and HR I have been ignored by everyone. I am unhappy and things just keep getting worse. I try to go in with a better attitude every day and keep trying to just work harder. People are unkind,unprofeesional, and sometimes just plan rude to me. I dont fit in and still unsure of what my role is. I feel so lost and I keep getting negative feedback from my peers and boss. I went in on Friday morning and just told my boss I need some direction and training and she refused to help me. She said I think you are doing just fine then sent me an E-mail with a list of my current mistakes. By company guidelines I should have 6 weeks of training I had only 6 days. I work in a high stress clinic and I am counted on to care for patients and I am so afraid I will make an awful mistake. I don’t know the equipment or protocols for this particular clinic. I told my boss that the patients and I both deserve better. The staff around me complain that I am not helping them enough and that I don’t know their system. My boss still does not understand my concern. The patients are frustrated that I know what I need to do but not how to do it when I am helping them.

Friday, Sep 27th 6:25PM
 
  • I hate my job and am ready for a career change. I feel it is time for me to move on and I can’t do that while I’m stuck at my job. The job is guaranteed misery. Quitting is the unknown but it is certainly no guaranteed misery. It’s the opportunity to start fresh and do something new.
Friday, Sep 27th 5:08PM
 
  • I haaaaaaate my job and pretty much everything about it.
Friday, Sep 27th 12:00PM
 
  • I am so miserable where I am with no hope of upward mobility. I don’t want to do this same job in 5 years somewhere else. I want to move on to training, delegating, and supervising. I’m tired of being in front of the public and working with kids everyday.
Friday, Sep 27th 10:43AM
 
  • I dread waking up every morning and going to work. Sunday nights are extremely depressing. There hasn’t been any growth for me in more than a year. I don’t get along with my boss. I hate sitting in a cubicle. I hate crouching over a computer. I hate sitting under flourescent lights. I hate that my life is neglected because I have to go to work somewhere else and give all of my time and energy to a cause I no longer believe in.

  • I have never enjoyed working at my current job, and I feel like I need the space to figure out my next direction. While stuck in this job, I lack the energy to creatively pursue anything else, and I feel that it keeps me from opening myself to true experience and opportunity. I know that I could embody and fulfill so much more potential if I had some time to really focus on myself and my happiness.

  • Ive been at my job, a kitchen for 8 years. I recently had an episode a month back, it felt like a heart attack. It was one of the scariest things i have ever felt. It happened again and again over the next few weeks. I went to a heart doctor, and he said, there is nothing wrong with your heart. It’s stress, your having panic attacks he said. I have not felt normal for some time. Every now and again, when i have time off, or am actively participating in my hobbies, and passions, i feel like my old self again. But most days i just feel bad. Its a horrible feeling that I would never wish on anyone. I don’t ever want to feel this way ever again. I have strongly Disliked my job for many years and have suffered problems related to stress because of it but never this bad. It’s just too much and I can’t put myself thru it any more.

This Monday I realized I didn’t need to stay in this organization. There were intimidation tactics, negativity, I was coached I was too professional, too positive. I have never heard that in my entire career. Two of the co-workers were toxic, one was drunk at work, the other one was verbally abusive. I took power and quit. I have no regrets. Most people would have said “don’t burn bridges” but what’s to burn if no bridges ever existed.

  • I am a Contract Manager in a Fortune 50 company making >$100k/yr and have been doing this for about 15 years. My workplace is a mass of chaos and confusion and I’ve given up trying to make a difference because my efforts don’t seem to work out any more, or they take so long to realize that the excitement I feel at the beginning is all but dried up by the end. Although I absolutely love aspects of what I do – writing and negotiating contract language, crafting strategy and making the business customers happy with a good contract – I am just run dry from the same cycles and discussions over and over, year after year, and how in this company nothing seems to ever get better, it’s just more work, more work, more work, less recognition, less opportunity for development, less money, promotions, growth. I am a single parent of a 5yo child, trying to juggle a high pressure job, my growing child, a house, navigation of the other parent, feeling overwhelmed and bored at the same time. In short, I feel burnt out and tired. I want to do something new, different, something that matters and that I can see the results of immediately or in a short amount of time. I think about teaching children and what that would look like, not to mention having summers off. I feel like as long as I am in my current job I’ll never find a way to get to a new job. I’ve left jobs before, big jobs, without having another lined up, and both times I ended up in better positions then would have if I hadn’t left. But those times were before I had a child, a mortgage, an ex that I don’t always get along with, before I was this close to middle age. But I am dying in this job. Literally dying. And feeling worse and worse everyday, and wondering what I teach my son about life and what work means when he sees me dragging around the house at the end of the day, either depressed, resigned or pissed off. I have lots of reasons to quit, more than I can possibly put here. So I’ll stop and call this good enough for now.
Thursday, Sep 12th 4:39PM
 
  • I simply hate my job. 16 years of my life has been wasted on a mindless job with terrible hours.

Thursday, Sep 12th 12:30AM

Wednesday, Sep 11th 9:04PM
 
  • I need to quit to keep my sanity. I am so stressed that I can’t focus, I hate getting up in the morning to go to work, but tell myself “I have to pay the mortgage”! I used to like what I do but now I don’t care anymore and I don’t like feeling like this.

  • Because my boss is being an absolute tyrant towards me. He pin points at every mistake that I do. And when my only other colleague does the same mistakes he would just shrug it off and make no big deal out of it. He is always arrowing at me. He’s an absolutely bad leader who doesn’t know how to manage his subordinates well and his words are cut-throat. This is the last straw for me. I’ve finally put in the calendar of my QUIT DAY.
Thursday, Sep 5th 1:35AM

  • I’m ready to move on. I’ve been at this organization over five years and have learned a lot, had some amazing experiences and helped to build new deparents, but I am in need of a change. I’m quitting because I want to spend more time exploring what thins change could look like.

  • I am neglecting my family and have two income options with high potential. My wife ANSI are in agreement to leave a toxic work environment.

  • Health and family reasons besides I hate my job.

  • My boss is evil; she punished me because I was forced to take FMLA leave & when I returned, I was moved to another position with terrible hours. I hate the new job and have no respect for my boss. If I return, I will say something I can’t take back. My benefits are really good, and I don’t have much money saved, but I have a husband who works.

  • In the realistic and financial scheme of things, I have the luxury to just walk away from this job because I have no obligations nor do I pay any bills.
  • In the emotional and meaningful scheme of things, I have no desire to work for, make better, or help this company PERIOD. The attitudes and points of view of my uppers are never going to change, so the retail side will NEVER change = Nothing will progress or be bettered. I have a problem “sticking it out” with a company that has no REAL future.
  • My work is not challenging. It’s not like what I had imagined. My boss is obsessed with putting me in the front lines and memorizing recipes & making drinks better than the store managers, but that’s not REALLY my role. (I wonder if this happens with other companies)
  • Lastly, my boss is the devil himself reincarnated onto Earth. He is the most negative and self absorbed person I have ever met in my life. He has the ability to make me feel sick and want to stab myself in the eye with a dull pencil at the same time. No one has ever had that effect on me. Because of his negativity, the work environment is just CRAP. It’s toxic, at best.
  • It is passed the point of trying to “make the best” of my situation. There really is not making it better — it is what it is and I refuse to settle for that.
  • I do not ever want to settle for misery.
  • I am passionate, young, a hard worker, and INTELLIGENT. I expect to be utilized, for my work to be meaningful, and for the job environment to be nurturing or at least bearable at the very least.

  • Retail drains me! It isn’t a career; it’s merely a survival job. I’ve had enough of rude management, rude associates and most of all rude customers. The only thing that is good is that I get paid weekly. Otherwise, there’s no reason for me to stay since there are mostly cons:
  • Physically sore in my hips. Sometimes me feet really get wrecked.
  • Stupid, juvenile coworkers who mainly live on the southside. They need this job because they have kids or a man they gotta take care of (another kid!).
  • Subpar training. You’re expected to know everything when they themselves don’t know shit.
  • Monotonous, boring work. Saying and doing the same things all the time with no real excitement.
  • Being phony-nice. I USED to be nice. Marshalls changed that. Putting on the phony nice girl act shows how unhappy I really am.
  • Now I barely get there on time. It’s over.

  • I’m so miserable at my job, it’s effecting my health. I feel trapped and stagnant and KNOW this is not how my life is supposed to be.

  • Unfulfilled. Glass ceiling. Ineffective. Hate going to work every day.
