It’s DEFINITELY Time to Resign

Whether you like it or not, a job is where you spend the majority of your waking life. If it’s crappy, the majority of your waking life is crappy, and that’s not okay. Sometimes you need to realise that it’s time to step back – you’re working for your job, but your job isn’t working for you. Here are the signs it’s time to resign.

1. You feel grumpy all the time. Work makes you a bit, you know… ragey? Stabby? Basically, the fury is real and sometimes you’re convinced you’ll never feel true joy again (until you get home, because for some reason being away from your office seems to fix all your problems). Face the facts: you hate your job. And, there’s no reason to be somewhere that makes you feel unhappy.

2. You find reasons to call in sick, come in late or leave early. The minute you can miss, well, a minute of work, you feel like your life has been made. That’s why you go out of your way to schedule things during work hours. The shorter you can make your day, the better – you have pretty much zero loyalty to the company at the moment, tbh.

3. You feel bored as hell half the time. You’ve been at it for what feels like forever, but your job isn’t changing. It’s so routine that you feel completely and utterly stuck. It’s not that you’re not busy – it’s that even when you are busy, the work is boring and unchallenging.

4. You aren’t seeing room for growth. There doesn’t seem to be any way up from where you are now, and you fear that your job is completely stagnant. You don’t want to be in the same role forever, and you’re ambitious in your career. There’s no point staying somewhere that doesn’t give you the opportunity to become better.

5. You don’t get along with your colleagues. A job can be an extremely lonely experience if there isn’t at least one person you get along with really well. Of course, this is the world, and personalities are bound to clash – you’re not going to love everyone, and everyone is not going to love you. But if you genuinely cannot find common ground with anyone in your office, it may be time to resign.

6. Your boss is the actual worst. Like, your boss needs an exorcism. His or her presence leaves you in a total panic, and you’re scared to go to him or her with any concerns. If your boss makes you feel like you’re some sort of idiot and treats you like crap, you need to make a run for it.

7. You’re burnt out. Your job is too much for one person to physically handle. You’re coming in early, staying late and you’re impossibly stressed. You have no time for your own life – you’re living for your boss. No matter how you look at it, it isn’t worth it. If your workload can’t be relieved, move on before you fully crack under the pressure.

8. You feel like a child in preparatory school. You should definitely resign if your every move is being observed and you feel like you need to ask permission to go to the toilet. You’re totally being kept under your company’s thumb, even though you’re a grown woman with a life that doesn’t revolve around your job.

9. The company morale is dangerously low. You and your colleagues are currently in an environment of shared misery. If everyone is unhappy, something in your office is very, very wrong. Even if you feel loyal towards your company, you have to realise when issues aren’t going to be resolved in the short term. You don’t have to stick around – you deserve a more pleasant space.
