We’ve all struggled with our motivation on our jobs from time to time.
But sometimes, you’re beyond irritation and beyond a burnout. Sometimes, you’ve reached the point of no return, and it would be best to leave your job and find something new.
Many think a job that makes us feel awful would be easy to leave, but for many of us it’s not the case. Either we feel it’s impossible to find something better, or we worry that if we leave, we’ll end up in a worse position than we’re in now. It’s time to start doing what it takes to get a grip on your well-being.
Here are some signs you should leave your job:
13. You have no time for yourself.
If you’re working so many late nights you don’t feel like a person anymore, leave your job and find one that allows you to have time for yourself. What’s the point of making a living if you don’t have time to actually live? It is time to move on.
14. You Can’t Stand your boss.
If you and your boss, no matter how much you’ve tried, can’t get along and work things out, you may just need to cut your losses. Having a boss that you can’t work well with, and who doesn’t support you, will not help you succeed. Instead it will make you resentful and frustrated.
15. Your job duties have increased, but the pay hasn’t.
Sometimes there’s a good reason for this—but Sutton Fell says it’s usually a sign you should go. “When downsizing has moved your team into double time, but certainly nowhere near double compensation, it may be time to move on,” Taylor says. That’s especially true if the company is performing well, but it’s not reflected in your salary or other rewards.
