For years, I had been stuck at a job that no longer served my purpose, the environment was toxic and had severely impacted my self-confidence in shifting my career. I had invested a lot into refining my skills and growing my professional profile, however, I wasn’t able to land the positions I wanted. I also suffered from chronic fatigue for more than 10 years.
After 3 months of deep therapy, I finally had the courage to take action on what I knew I had to do: Make a leap of faith and trust that things would be alright. I ended up resigning without a new job, and it was a daunting experience. I needed it though, I very much needed time to recover and value myself.
Six months later, I can see the importance of that transition time. I feel a lot more energetic. I also found a job that gives me the freedom I sought, yet is challenging and motivating.
