Balance, Life, Work

I am not quitting my job

15 years in the business

Yes, my work had become more challenging by the day. However, this is not enough reason for me to leave. Nope.

In the past month, I’m doing applicant interviews. We have an open position for a Content Writer since one of our writers will leave soon. She quitted the job because she has to, and I understand her reasons. We all look and head to the greener pastures especially when we have someone relying on us.

But for me, the “greener pastures” is here. This place is my retreat when everything else gets chaotic at home. AND. VICE. VERSA. I have no reasons to leave.

In my almost three years here, I’ve seen a lot—lots of friendly faces and not so. I’ve seen them come and go. Some quit the job after six months. Some quit the job and travel. Some quit due to health reasons and some others because they feel burnout.

I’ve seen some people get hurt. It’s haunting especially when the exit is not so ‘graceful.’ That’s how it is eh. Life goes on.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ll quit anytime if I am unhappy. But I am happy where I am right now. I can’t force others to feel and do the same. #respetolang

I think that’s the gist of the experience—we need to respect these people’s decision. We cannot keep the people who want to quit. Staying is a choice.

And I am choosing to stay.

What about you? If ever you’ll leave your current job, what will be the reason?
