I recently gave my resignation at my work. It was a decision I had been brewing on for quite some time. I was not happy in my position, felt undervalued, and there was no room for growth. Usually, I am a nervous wreck before breaking big news to people, especially when it’s news I know they are not going to like. I am a total people pleaser and often put others before myself.
For the first time in a very long time, I don’t know my next steps. I absolutely have no idea what will happen next. It’s a little exhilariting because I am such a planner and hate change. I feel like I can finally breath and I don’t have a weight on my shoulders anymore! Woohoo! This year for me is all about positive changes and really listening to myself. Why stay in a job that makes me so unhappy? Life is so short and I am determined to put myself first.
I love this song below. I always think of giving your notice as breaking up with your employer. It’s never an easy thing to do.
