I was once offered a very high paying job and declined it due to safety reasons. I ever regretted my decision. I felt guilty about it at the begining but I moved on. My health and safety is more important than money.

shyqueen12 :  Hey Bee, I recently took a month long break from work while in between jobs and had the same worry about finances. It sounds like your husband is great and you know what you have to do to get more hours. While they’re coming, try to take some downtime and relax! I renewed my library subscription and caught up on Netflix binges, worked out and had friends over for tea. My province was covered in smoke so going outside wasn’t really an option, but if you can go outside there are tons of things to do! Does your city have a date guide, or a tourism hashtag? Look to see what they’re promoting and check some of the places out!

I left a role because of the bullying by management. Not just to me? to everyone in the office it was incredibly toxic and I was DONE. Was causing huge issues with my eczema, stress eating and anxiety.

I had enough to move state closer to family and return to study but cutting it close…. My Fiance is fine with it and keeps offering to help out financially but I have been so independent all my life it’s a huge adjustment for me to be saying no to social occasions etc that are not in budget. I will be dependant on him shortly which is still fine.

He is hugely supportive of me leaving. I keep wondering if I should have stuck it out just a little be longer but my health is making such jump forward I feel alot of relief

We have the opposite situation – my husband recently left his job, which was causing a lot of problems, without something else lined up. He has other side gigs but no stable income. Sometimes it makes me worry a bit but overall I know it was the right thing. He wasn’t happy where he was and the situation wouldn’t have changed. 

It does mean we have put on hold our plans to TTC until he is settled in a new job (otherwise we would have probably started next month). He was the one more eager to start, and when he started talking about leaving his job, we agreed we’d have to wait longer if he did.
