Is it normal to feel like you made a mistake when starting a new job? I’ve had a pit in my stomach since I put in my notice at my old job. Unsure if it’s normal or not. I’m in week 2 at my new job.

Yes. I felt like this when I started at my new job. It’s overwhelming because you’re new and learning all new stuff. It takes time

Normal. Change is hard, especially if you had good relationships at your old job. Give it time.. at least a month or two. You'll likely realize that you weren't as important to your previous bosses as you thought.

Also you can have less friends at work and fill that void with non work friends/family. I went from 50+ friends at old firm to 4 immediate coworkers in industry. The improvement in quality of life is worth it but did take an adjustment period.

I think this is common and normal. I felt really sad the last week or so of my last job because I had great coworkers. My new position has been good so far, but there’s a lot to learn and it can be overwhelming sometimes.

It depends how long we’re you at your old job?

You sound exactly like me bc I also turned down a prior offer lol. After I got this one I just couldn’t turn it down bc of the money and the industry people say is really hard to break in to. So here I am more money and more problems. I miss the familiar and knowing everything 😂

Are you taking any action on the feeling or just dealing with it?

Same here. Having regrets leaving now :/

Like day 1 when they told me people aren’t allowed to take time off for half the year cause its busy season. Not like I have any vacation plans but seems a little extreme. Also on week 2 when I worked for 24 hours straight.
