I’m leaving a job I’ve only been at for 4 months, because my old company reached out to me and offered me a much better option

 

I wouldnt leave your job without another in place, but I learned a long time ago, you have to live your life

 

You’re not going to look back in 40 years and think, man I’m so glad I spent all my free time working instead of going out, taking trips, etc

 

You’ll be burned out!

It’s about working smarter, not harder.  I know how you feel because I’m a teacher with 9 different grade levels and the equivalent of 2 teacher’s workload.  I force myself to leave things at school even when I feel like I “should” be working on stuff.  I do spend a lot of time at school and I always get there early, earlier than the majority of other teachers.  I love it and part of it is just how the job is, but I feel you on work/life balance!

If you are not happy, absolutely start job searching, but I wouldn’t leave unless you have something else lined up.  Try to find ways to get things done at work and leave them at work.  That is a good first start.

ETA: You would not be able to get unemployment benefits if you resign.
