It is a dead end job. I hate my boss and my co-workers.

I’m underpaid, because of the bad financial situation of the company. But it was worse than now when I came here, and I’ve been working hard and helping to improve the company. I feel like I’m subsidizing the company with my effort because I’m not paid fairly.

I’m young, free and ready for roaming the world looking for a better opportunity. (It would be hard to find something worse than my current job). My boss smokes in the offices – he is rude and dirty. The company’s organization is a mess.

I’m sure this is not the job I want for my future life. When  I think of being in the same job five years from now I think about suicide.

I’ve not told anybody about my decision, because of the high rate of unemployment in my country. My friends and family won’t agree with my decision. I don’t know what I’m going to do in the future, but it’s my life and I only have one life to live.

Talk to someone

It is our life. The only thing we know for sure is that this is our life and we might only have this one chance to experience life.

Step 3 of the Just Quit Steps is to gain support from your loved ones for your decision.  At some point you need to let them know what you have decided to do. 

You should expect them to try to talk you out of it.  You should encourage them to try to do so. They might have thought of things that you haven’t thought of.  REMEMBER THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT LOVE YOU. 

Talking to loved ones is hard, but it is part of the process.  We are individuals, but what we do impacts other peoples’ lives.  We have to be respectful and considerate of that. 

Today, are you ready to tell someone that you love what is happening in your career?  Yes or No.  If yes, proceed.  If no, wait.
