I finally left. I left a toxic work environment that had felt quite suffocating for over seven years. I had always talked about leaving, but never felt like it was the “right time.” I don’t know what made it finally feel “right”, but I did it. I feel like I am starting over.
My final work day with that company was October 12, 2019. My first work day was September 12, 2012. Exactly 7 years 1 month. I was worried I’d regret leaving; I was worried I’d regret needing the comfort in the chaos.
But I am okay. More than okay… I am happy, excited, anxious, surprised. I am feeling all sorts of things, except regret. I made a choice for my own well-being and it was one of the bravest things I’ve ever done for myself. That may sound silly or extreme to some, but to me, it’s everything.
I have been very absent from my blog due to excessively working between two jobs, but hope to find my way back very soon. ❤️
