I left my job after ~6 months as I really wasn’t enjoying it - both the project and how the firm operates and some other stuff. However, I can’t help feeling bad and really anxious for the new place - how can I overcome this?

I submitted my two week notice after less than three weeks into a Big 4 and my TC have more than doubled in the 1.5 years since. I understand it feels weird, but do what makes you happy. It’ll all work out in the end.

I hope so, thank you 🙏🏻

If you don’t have drug tests coming up, smoking some mj helps. Do not take edibles tho.

Fair point, I’ve mad noobie mistake of “not feeling anything gonna eat one more”

OP - it will be alright. I am sure such big changes feel overwhelming etc. Just hang in there and trust that it’s all for your good. Try to disconnect and focus on things outside work that give you joy. Life >>> work. Always remember. You got this 👊 All the best!

You’re right. Thanks C1 - I hope you succeed in life!

Are you saying you have anxiety being in a new position now?

like

Yes but also if I’ve made the right decision, whether it’ll be good for me etc…

If you have anxiety coming into the new role people will see that. Try to clear your mind. The past is the past. See a therapist to help you if you need to. You don’t want that baggage in your new place, it won’t set you up for success and it’s not fair to the new place. You’ve got this. Good luck!
