Two months ago while I was still at my corporate job, I suddenly realize all my negative emotions came solely from my job at that time. It became clear to me it was time for me to move on. I resigned without hesitation.
Quitting without an offer in my hand, it was natural for my parents to worry about where I will be heading next. “User Experience Designer.” I told them. “So you want to be a designer now? I know you are good at drawing but..” “Don’t worry mum and dad, I will make this happen.” I interrupted them. “With the skills I acquired and the passion from my heart, it is only a matter of time that I will find a proper UX job” I said to myself.
One month later, I got an offer from a cloud based SAAS company, where I am currently working as an user experience designer. It was a big deal for me, I got to do things that is fun; and things that actually matters. Now I am excited to go to work everyday, although I found myself struggle to get out of bed a lot, but that was just because I tended to stay up late at night.
Sometime quitting your job is just something you should do.
If you are the kind of person that feels exhausted at work, and didn’t want to answer “How was work?” from your friends because what you had in your mind was “It was soul sucking”. Or if you found yourself constantly felt compelled and not being contributed to something exciting during the week, and had to look for “escape” during the holidays or weekends. Don’t you think there is something missing there and not your life should be? If so, what are you going to do about it?
