Here are five reasons it’s time to quit your job:
You Don’t Get Along with Your Manager
When you started the job, your relationship with your manager was one of mutual respect, ideas, and the betterment of both of you and the company. You were listened to, and you listened to your manager. However, over time, your manager stopped listening, started berating you, and doesn’t treat you like the educated human being you are. You would rather keep your ideas to yourself then get into another argument. You avoid your boss at all costs.
The Job Hurts Your Self Esteem
All the conversations about how badly you perform your job, and what a worthless employee you are begin to take their toll on your self esteem. You now question everything you do on the job and off the job. Your self-esteem is at an all time low.
You Can't Motivate Yourself to Go to the Job
You have never had a tardiness problem prior to your current position, but now you can’t seem to get out of bed. You’re chronically late. The thought of going to work fills you with dread and anxiety until you call in sick. You would rather be anywhere but work.
You Always Feel Angry at Work
You have never been an angry person, but now you are consumed with anger. You find yourself starting arguments with your coworkers, boss, and even your family members. You are prone to violent outbursts.
You No Longer Care About the Job
You show up because they pay you, but even the paycheck doesn’t matter. You don’t care if the work gets completed on time or at all. You do just enough work to keep your job.
I had a position where I could check off all of these. I was berated and belittled every time I walked through the door. The constant harassment took a toll on my self esteem. I became angry. I became sick – chronic headaches, stomach problems, high blood pressure.
Eventually, I just didn’t care. I showed up for the paycheck, but even the paycheck wasn’t worth the destruction to my mental and physical well-being. I knew it was time to leave.

By the age of 11, she had graduated to Stephen King novels. A few of her favorites include Carrie, Tommyknockers, The Dark Tower Series up to book 3 (That's where it stopped in the late 80s/ early 90s), Pet Semetary, The Shining, Night Shift, The Stand, It, Cujo, Christine, The Eyes of the Dragon and Thinner (Richard Bachman). In her teen years, she moved on to Anne Rice and got through about four of those books before they degraded. If you've ever read Anne Rice, you know book 5 isn't readable. Stacey has read a couple Harry Potter books as she was introduced to them in the early 2000s, and she's never read or watched anything Twilight or 50 Shades. Sorry. I'm a vampire purist, and nothing needs to be said about the latter. You already know.
