Early on in my career, after I had applied for countless jobs and wasn’t getting any response. I eventually got a job in a company and was super excited. Unknown to me, it was a toxic environment.
I heard people resigned even in their second week. Why would someone accept a job and resign in the second week? Until I started experiencing what they experienced.
My bosses at the time would make me feel inadequate, and I would go into the office toilet and cry. Until I told myself I couldn’t continue like this, I decided to resign in the 5th month. It was a scary decision because I didn’t know how long I would have to wait for another job, but today, when I look back, I’m proud I made that decision.
If you continue working in a place that isn’t good for your mental health and emotional well-being, it can damage your self-esteem and cause severe disruptions in your personal life, which can lead to chronic stress and depression.
I pray people find the courage to leave places, jobs, relationships, and environments detrimental to their lives🙏 .
