I resigned from Work

Postby Cpt Yossarian » Fri Jul 08, 2016 12:04 pm

I resigned from work on the 9th June 2016 for my mental health and desire to start something new with my life. I worked for 11 years learning a limited skill set. Now a fresh day to go out and the world and accomplish something. But I have this gut feeling I don't want to accomplish anything or get another job. This leaves the question of how I get food and roof over my head to live and I don't have the answer yet.

I was not in a good place leading up to my resignation I was severely depressed and my emotions had become deadened. I was dull and boring and there was no life in me. I took a anxiety attack later that week as thoughts flooded into my mind about what I was going to do to earn money and I still don't have answers. The doctors give me something to help with my anxiety and with my previous history of suicide attempts, thoughts and feelings I was assured that I go get ESA (sick line) which entitled me to certain benefits which I need to get sorted out. I need my P45 from my workplace.

To get by I have done odd jobs for a friend who runs a business mostly office work but this is only temporary.

But I do feel lost now but with hope in my heart and actively looking for something that I desire to do.

I got money to do me this month and next month.

Did you have a question, Cpt? You've made a bold move for someone feeling such despair as you do.

It's good to see you here again and I hope this will be the change you need. Keep us posted.

Keep that hope in your heart. Just don't stop looking for answers on your questions.

Hope you would feel positive again :)

I'm really not sure what to do with my life. I'm thinking positive about money.

How are you filling your days, or are you still working out your notice? Are you looking for another job?

I'm working part time for a friend who runs a construction business. No I have not been actively working for work since I don't know what I would like to do but I'm open to anything that takes my interest and happiness.

I'm been reading and writing which I love.

are you earning enough from part time to cover eat and bills? if so, then no need to rush I guess. Just relax and search what are you liking to do.

Btw what were you working in previous jobs? WHat are your skills? This would be easier to give suggestions. Are yoou good in logic?

We need challenges in our life. The resignation is not the bad decision. We need something to motivate ourselves.
Sometimes when I saw someone in a company or firm, Yes, they have experience, worked for whole life.
However, I cannot feel they are happy. They are living like zombies without faith,

It's good to be working for and with a friend, especially if it keeps you afloat with the bills.

I think I've quoted Richard Bach on the subject before. In The Bridge Across Forever he tells his partner Leslie how he became a writer: by doing odd jobs, having his car repossessed, going hungry sometimes, but always writing and submitting to publishers until finally he was on his feet and then in the air.

That could be you, Yossarian. A love of reading and writing is great but not enough. You have to take yourself seriously and be businesslike about it. Pick an agent or publisher who handles the kind of thing you write, check their website for submission details and get cracking.

I'm praying for your success.

I've got a lot of money coming in. Lot of ideas. Open to new information and way of life. My life is starting. I feel good. This is working. I believe in myself and what I am doing. Slowly I get better and better then I am a master of my fate and luck. I work at what I like when I like and charge what I like. This is me. A master of my life. Love sent to all who read. Love for myself.
