Once we apply for a job, our utmost priority is to excel and climb the ladder, with promotions rather than having to change jobs often. Therefore the thought of having to call “Quits” can not just be scary but also a difficult decision to make. Moreover, it becomes a horrific thought due to the social stigma attached that “Hard work is the key to success”. The psychological distress caused by dealing with shame, guilt, and a sense of failure after handing in the notice is tough on individuals. On the other hand of the spectrum, employers sometimes fail to recognize the requirements of employees, thus being unable to provide an atmosphere for job satisfaction and increased productivity.
These along with various other factors sometimes put individuals in the spotlight to have to make a decision on whether they are willing to ignore the toxic job environment or finally hand in the notice with their head held high.
Scholar Helana Darwin gave an insight into her deteriorating health, sharing a tweet seeking acceptance for having to come to terms with the decision to call quits from her miserable job. Surprisingly enough, there were many to reply with their experiences allowing the employee community to not feel ashamed and know their worth for when it’s time to end the misery.

These are some of the points to keep an eye on. Don’t see yourself working in the same field for longer. If you don’t vibe with your boss, quit! Sense the toxic hierarchy? Quit. Didn’t get the promotion that should’ve been yours or you are underpaid? Quit. Under-utilized or overqualified? Or have other personal or medical reasons to attend to, just quit! Never underestimate your self-worth for a job that is putting you at mental or physical risks.

These discussions can be questionable and debatable, but with all the responses, calling quits were beneficial for the individuals. Life is too short to carry on with miserable jobs. The social stigmas are less likely to end but at the end of the day, the question instead should be as to whether society impacts your life or your own rational thoughts?
