A close friend has shared that she’s thinking of quitting her secure, well-paid job to travel the world:
â€œI just donâ€™t want to spend my whole life staring at a computer screen. I donâ€™t wanna dream about what I want to do, I want to just go out there and DO IT! I have my whole life to be stuck in a job, when I have commitments and family and mortgage and what not. Iâ€™m free now, I should use this time!â€
Which response is most likely to create negative feelings?
Wouldnâ€™t everyone like to do thatâ€¦ but most people donâ€™t â€“ and thereâ€™s a reason, right?
Are you sure quitting is the best way though? What about leave-without-pay or something?
Isnâ€™t it a waste? After all the time and effort â€“ and money – you’ve spent studying and working hard to get where you are?
I thought of doing that too, but I know Iâ€™d regret it later.
