How Linda Belcher Gave Me the Confidence to Leave the "day-job" I Had Just Started.
Season 3 Episode 14
Linda starts a job at the local grocery, and within a week she's hired full-time as a shift lead.
On her first day without the manager...
...she's taken advantage of, and everyone ends up with the day off...but her.
Safe to say it all went to he** from there.
She quits, no notice, and returns to the restaurant to be with her beloved husband and children.
I don't know why, but this episode spoke to me.
Here I was, working my "day" job (which is actually a midnight, but ya know) wondering why I can't just quit when things would be better for myself if I did.
But I pride myself on several things when it comes to a job:
And this being a job I just started, it didn't sit well with me to leave when it hasn't even been a month.
And I admit, there is still a guilty feeling.
I have a nice boss, nice fellow employees... overall easy job requirements.
But I'm suffering.
The exhaustion I feel after a shift leaves my brain foggy and my body aching.
I'm young, but ever since having kids, my energy isn't where it used to be.
But that's not the main reason I decided to put in my notice.
I finally found a remote job that pays well (my actual career) and I don't want my work to suffer because of my tiredness.
SO, with Linda Belcher as inspiration, I decided to leave midnights.
And prioritize another commitment...
To see where it takes me (because I know I can grow here 💯)
Although, I'm still trying not to feel bad...
