Life Update: Holy F*#k! I Quit My Job!

Butterflies! OMG I quit my fucking job for the first time ever and I feel better than I have in months. No job is perfect and I totally get that but, I've been working since the age of fifteen for an array of companies and never have I disliked a job as much as this one. For some people quitting comes easy but, for me it's a struggle. I don't have a quitter spirit and usually stick with whatever I commit to but I couldn't do it any longer, the job was starting to affect my wellbeing and that's how I knew it was time to leave. I was only there for two years and struggled with leaving for months. I would have an anxiety attack just thinking about quitting because I didn't want to start over at a new job, didn't want to disappoint my employer, coworkers, or friend who helped me get the job and definitely didn't want to put my livelihood in jeopardy. 

I mean, I would literally sit in my car or in my bedroom crying for hours and couldn't really understand why but I knew something was bothering me, I felt trapped and miserable because I knew I needed to quit but didn't have enough courage at the time to do so. It got so bad that I had to start seeing a therapist who by the way really helped me figure everything out. With the help of my therapist, my sister and a friend I finally worked up enough nerve to do quit! It's a scary yet wonderful feeling to finally let go and I know this is just another step on my life's journey and I'll be just fine. What I would tell anyone facing a similar dilemma, be it at work, home or some other aspect of your life is PEACE OF MIND IS PRICELESS and nothing nor no one is worth your peace. Life goes by way too fast for anyone to waste it living unhappy. It took me awhile but I finally realized that.
