I could still remember the hardship that I went through just to be in the corporate world. 200 applicants were there and out of it, 20 will enter the company. I’m lucky that I am one of the 20 people selected. Oh those days.. But then the time has come that I have to leave the company. It was a good 2 years of working with them. In those years, I’ve grown a lot as a person.
Now, I have to turn to a new page where I can fill it with new things. Below are the things that I found out after quitting my job.
As I stayed longer at my job, I started to lose grip on my goals. Right then, I know that I am not happy anymore. I am now an empty page. A blank canvass. I am currently rediscovering my passion and goals in life. It was a tough one but I’m getting there because the road is getting clearer each day.
More time for my family and friends
My past job requires me to work during holidays. I even have to bargain my vacation leaves because there are a few of us who knows the task. So plans should be done ahead of time. I even lack time to meet with my friends because usually I’d be tired during the weekend.
As of now, even though I do not have the money that I used to earn, spending quality time with my friends, family and partner gives me happiness. I was also able to reunite with my high school friends.
Not because it is conventional, I should be doing it too.
Being in a corporate job is the conventional way of living here. But after days of quitting, I couldn’t see myself working in the corporate world. Well I guess not now. I remembered having an interview and instead of me feeling excited because of the possible job, I started thinking again the reasons why I left my previous job.
I am happy with the freedom that I am experiencing right now. I get to wake up whenever I want. Work whenever I want. I am in control of my life. Quitting my corporate job is the greatest decision I’ve ever made.
