One of our objectives is to grow and remain stable in the company with which we work. Every time we see a champion employee who started at the bottom and worked their way up the organizational ladder, it inspires us. However, certain circumstances compelled us to pause and consider whether we are in the correct position to continue or stop. I once found myself in a parallel situation. I was debating whether I deserved to stay or let go and resign.
I enjoyed my job! Every day, I learn something unique. Working in the facility management industry taught me to become more patient, versatile, and connect with various backgrounds. I’ve honed my administration and time management skills. It made me happy to meet people from all walks of life and learn from them. I’ve met some incredible coworkers.
Later, I found myself exhausted, confused, and discouraged despite all of this. It reached the point of me re-evaluating my professional and personal well-being.
Are you in this situation right now? Do you know anyone in a similar case? These factors pushed me to a crossroads where I had to weigh the pros and cons and decide whether to gamble and keep going or stop and resign.
4 Warning Signs You Should Resign
#1. Differences in Principles
Goals and results are an essential part of our success. How you plan, execute, and achieve these goals and results is also vitally important. So, big or small organizations have their mission and vision to keep them on track. They also have core values that align them with their mission and vision—making them responsible and accountable in all aspects of their business.
I’ve learned that when the company’s core values no longer reflect your principles, it’s time to call it a quit. Do not hesitate to stop and submit your resignation paper. Why?
You wouldn’t want to work for a company that entangles. It’s difficult to survive in a company that no longer encourages your growth and entices your motivation due to differences in goals and methods for achieving outstanding results.
A kind and understanding boss is a welcome relief for any employee. Kindness and understanding, however, cannot pay bills. Let’s face it, we all have to work for a living. We have a family to feed, bills to pay, and other financial obligations to meet.
If you’re promoted solely based on position and workload instead of merit, that’s something else. It’s time for you to come to a halt. Unfortunately, some abusive employers believe they have the right to exploit and mistreat their workers. They enjoy the fruits of their employees’ labor alone instead of sharing it with deserving employees.
It is not the employee’s responsibility, in my opinion, to demand or beg for a raise. It is the responsibility of the management or employer to provide appraisals and rewards to their deserving and reliable employees.
#3. Abusive Management or Colleagues
There are times when you must work both as an individual and as part of a team. That is something we understand. A one-person team, on the other hand, should not exist. It should be a group effort.
When we say Team, we mean that everyone is working together to achieve a shared goal that profits everyone. Suppose even after any appropriate interventions, you are still in a position of being exploited. In that case, you must quit and resign. No one has the right to take advantage of your generosity and efforts.
#4. Health Investment
To work effectively and efficiently, you must have a healthy mind, body, and soul. It signifies that you are in good mental, physical, and spiritual health. On the other hand, if these are already being invested, it is a strong indication that you should submit your resignation letter.
I recalled. Because of my workload, I could not take a decent lunch break during office hours. I could not sleep well each night because my mind was constantly thinking about my to-do list for the next working day.
I am constantly considering how I would address all current and anticipated concerns. Every day, I felt punished because of the stress and fatigue of my day-to-day work. I felt alone, and there was no one to help me. It was incredibly exhausting! And I did not have enough time to rest and recover, making my health mentally and physically languish.
So, without hesitation, I came to a halt and resigned! Keep in mind that your health is crucial. No medicine can restore the best in you. Don’t let anything come at your expense.
Let me ask you a question now. Are you experiencing any of these? Do you know anyone currently dealing with the four factors above? If you answered yes, please don’t wait. When is the right time to let go and resign? NOW.
At first, I was afraid of losing my income. But I realized I would lose more of that if I did not resign. So, don’t be scared of losing your job, position, income, or friends at work because losing YOU is more dangerous than losing anything else.
It’s preferable to be in a situation where you’re content and in love with what you’re doing. It’s not worth squandering your time and energy on something that will ruin you. Call it to quit, resign, rest, recover, and look for a new home where you can toil happily and passionately while making a decent living.
