Thinking of quitting my job and take a break. Need a reality check
My job is giving me a lot of stress. Morning i will wake up before alarm rings, feeling super anxious. Sometimes will randomly cry during the day (not openly. colleagues don’t know). When i see a window i will wish that i can jump out.
I want to quit and take an extended break. Plan to figure out what job to do next during this break. I want to just find simple jobs with less stress, like admin or something.
Even if i dont go back to work, my partner is willing to support me. I can stay home and take care of the house. But i don’t want to be a useless burden.
We still need to pay the house and save for retirement. Recently there’s a thread where the husband start to resent the family because he’s the sole bread-winner. I’m very scared we will go down that path if i don’t work or pull my weight.
I guess the concern is whether i can actually get those simple job as i’m overqualified on paper and have no related experience.
Skill wise i’m thinking of going for the skills future course once i know what job i want to apply. Is it unrealistic? unreasonable? Do i need a wake up call?
I don’t even know what kind of job i want/available out there yet. My sister works in HR and she said she wouldn’t hire someone like me, who doesn’t have any related experience or skill.
To add some background, i’m early 30s working IT in public sector. I’m also seeing a therapist already but it is just a few sessions in so i’m still in the process of trying to figure out things part.
