Resign or Stay: 5 Things to Consider for Decision-Making

I always says that your greatest rival in working is yourself- your attitude. Let's say you're doing your part as you work hard to the point that your office is your life almost 24/7. But then it seems not enough for your boss who are only waiting for you to do mistakes.  The worst part, she says something that's hard  to accept for your ego.

Resign or stay?

In my 10 years in the work field, I already submitted 4 resignation letters.

  • The first one was because I couldn't take  the extra job that publishing company asking from me.  Being like a production assistant was okay, since I also like doing that, but getting money directly from their clients was the worst part. 
  • Second was because I felt  like I'm carrying to much burden in all sort of aspects. I was promoted for higher position without salary increase but with additional heavier tasks that actually not my expertise. It was painful for me to leave my beloved colleagues but I need to find own growth and sustain my growing expenses.

In my current job, I'm also thinking of  submitting a resignation letter because of the following reasons:
  • Imbalance between my personal and  work time - I'm in the office 6 days a week and I report even during holidays
  • Having hard time to deal with my supervisor and other department heads
  • My office is very far from my house
  • I'm not meeting their expectations and even my own goals
  • I'm starting to like my part time job
Like you, most of these items are somewhat  invalid reasons for me. I'm thankful that I have job but being young and human too. I'm also trying to balance everything in my life. - (written a year ago)
