This. This post is the internal dialogue that I have been having with myself for the last two months. I go between telling myself that quitting without a back up plan is reckless and irresponsible, but as you’ve noted, trying to search for other employment while not making the same mistake again because you’re desperate and taking excessive sick days is pretty impossible. Thank you for validating that voice in my head and knot in my gut that I feel every Sunday night as I approach another week. Maybe I’ll be brave enough to stop ignoring them.
