I keep leaving my jobs because Is suffer from low self esteem, thinking everyone opinion is worth more than mine and find it hard to open up and be me.
I recently left a good full-time job because I hated confrontation, I did not know how to deal with things, I was unhappy within my role. Instead of discussing my concerns with colleagues I turned to drink to make me feel good, by blocking my emotions and not dealing with my issues at work. In the end I got too depressed and left my job.
I am working now but it pays less than the other job, I'm working part time hours and have had to move back with my parents because I could not afford the rent. At 30 years old, I wish I had taken the action I had needed to and stuck up for myself or got help, instead of running away.
Everyday I regret this as I have no life and nothing to look forward to.
In addition I split from boyfriend after 2 months of losing my job, he could not take my depression any more. I search for jobs everyday now and just want to go back to how things were (independent).
I have learned to,
Never make a decision to leave a job without a job, especially when depressed. Always find the positive things in your situation and be thankful for what you have. However everyday is a struggle to forgive myself for making a mistake but I will be fine.
Good to hear from people who may have similar experiences.
