Valid Reasons to Leave Your Current Job

Many people spend about one-third of their lives at work. Why use all that precious time on a job that doesn’t suit you well?

Having a job teaches us a lot, whether it’s accountability, responsibility, or work ethic. Unfortunately, with our way of living, spending this much time at your job is a necessity. Our jobs are what allows us to live the lifestyle we will enjoy.

While all of that is true, keep in mind, staying at a job that makes you miserable is not what you want. Believe it or not there are tons of valid reasons to leave your job. We share five of them in this article for you!

What You Do is Not Ideal for Your Personality

It’s a normal thing within the workforce to not be overly ecstatic about going to work. But that doesn’t mean people don’t appreciate the job they get to have and even people they work with. If you are someone that does not feel that way about your job, then maybe it’s time for a switch up.

Passion is what drives you to put full effort into your work and if you lack that then it’s going to feel very difficult to put in full effort. Which will affect you even more in the long run because you won’t have the incentive to work up in positions within that company.  

You Feel Stressed in the Workplace

Your mental health is very important when it comes to living happily. Stress at your job might cause your mental health to deteriorate. This won’t only cause you to hate your job but may also lead to depression or anxiety.

Self-awareness is much needed to decide whether your current job is right for you or not. Some thrive under stress while others crumble, however, you should never force yourself to stay in a stressful situation.

You Don’t Get Along with Your Boss

It’s common to have a boss that can be a little difficult at times or sometimes you might have a boss that’s impossible to get along with at all. Everyone’s had a boss they don’t necessarily enjoy. They can be judgmental, micromanaging, overbearing, or sometimes just flat out mean. Obviously, this can result in you wanting to quit your job.

If it seems you are stuck with this boss, it might be time to have a midlife career change.

There is No Room for You to Move up

If you aren’t going anywhere in the company, what’s the point of staying at a job? Don’t get me wrong, some people are comfortable staying at the same level their entire career, but that might not be for you. If you’re looking to climb your way up the ranks of a company, you’ll want to work somewhere that allows room for progress and advancement.

You’re Going Through Major Life Changes

Experiencing big changes can affect your life in all aspects, especially in the workplace. Moving out of town is a given because you obviously can’t stay at the same job. Unless, they have various locations, you might be able to transfer.

Having a child is another major life change because you will not have the time of day to keep up with the job you were doing before, and you will have to focus more on raising your kid. If part-time is something your company will allow, try that. If not, move on to the next.

If any of these reasonings sound like something you can relate to, you might want to take the next step to finding a new job. Refer to previous article “Finding Unadvertised Job Openings” if you are having a hard time finding a job that is right for you.
