* BIG HUGS * Don’t worry yourself sick, you’re doing what’s best for you. You aren’t a failure…is there any way to give feedback without diming someone out?

However, I think if you accepted a new position, you could just as easily leave it at a basic “I found another job that I felt would be a good move for where I am in my life right now” is explanation enough.  You don’t have to say that where you are in life is pissed right off at another employee. 

I obviously don’t know all the details but I just think it’s a good idea to keep it on the high road, and not burn bridges, which is sometimes what “throwing someone under the bus” comes down to.

Oh no no no. I’m sure you are not failure!  I mean that sincerely! 

Lots of internet hugs for you! I know for me, failure is one of the most devestating feelings I can experience. I hate the feeling of “I just couldn’t do it.”

Chin up! Remember that you have new opportunity waiting for you? Remember how exciting fresh starts can be?

It sounds like you’ve done the right thing – just remember the reason why you left, and stay strong! Big hugs – thinking of you!

Don’t let it get to you. You have to do what’s best for you in the end. No point staying in a job that’s making you miserable. Good luck with your talk with the boss. Is there any way you can focus on the new position, that you found this other job that is better suited to your skills/area of interest/has better potential for advancement and so you thought you’d try for it? I would try to emphasize how appealing the new job was and downplay why you’re leaving. Hopefully this new job will be totally perfect and the one you’re leaving won’t matter in the long run, but it’s always best not to burn bridges. You have to stay focused on the positive — good luck in your new position! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Linz1231: ugh, I get now why you’d feel more like you’re facing down an interrogation.  Even bigger hugs to you ๐Ÿ™‚

**hugs** I hope you feel better. As Bella said, doing what is best and most healthy for you is a success, and even though your discussion with the bosses may be uncomfortable, you are doing what’s best for you.

(((Hugs))))! You absolutely don’t owe them any explanation of why you are leaving. That is really inappropriate that they would sit you down and make you tell why you are leaving. You just have a better opportunity, end of conversation.
