Discussion on: Should I leave my current job during this time of pandemic?

Hey man, I feel you, I just submitted my resignation the past few days with the same reason.

I also have the same dilemma, I have enough money to survive until the end of the year.
But I have backup plans, I assured myself that after I'll leave the company I know what I wanted to do next.

Here's what I know:

  • Even on this time of pandemic there are still companies looking for new hires. So send your job applications to companies that you really wanted to work for.
  • You can even go your own way, create your own business and/or do things that you really love to do
  • As always, don't rush your resignation, you might regret it. Try and reflect if resigning is really the right decision for you to grow. Try to renegotiate your work terms or maybe ask for sabbatical leaves if possible.
  • If you really chose to resign, then make sure you have backup plans before submitting your resignation. It's up to you on what you really wanted to do in the next chapter of your life.
  • Always put your mental health as a priority, your mind is your greatest asset. Money can be earned, you can always find a way if you really wanted to.

I hope I have given you some enlightenment.

I wish you the best, and I hope you'll find your answer.

Good luck man
