25 People Who Quit Toxic Jobs With No Backup Plan

2. Have A Plan Ahead 

@anilop offered some very sound advice. Firstly, they state to have some savings to rely on so that you’re not accepting the first job that comes your way. That could end up being a mistake if it ends up being another dead-end job. Even if you want to quit your job that very day, it might be better to wait a week or two until you have a few things in place to help you stay afloat.

Another good idea is to give yourself a grace period of at least three weeks where you’re not doing anything. That way, you can prepare your headspace for looking for another job. It sounds like a waste of time. However, you’d be better off having a clear head to find the job you love than to look for one in a panic. If you can help it, don’t accept the first one that crosses your path.

1. Quitting Becomes Easier To Do

Don’t think that just because you find the job, you love in the end that you have to stick with it. It’s quickly becoming a new trend for the next generation to routinely change jobs so that they can expand their talents and try out a variety of things they’ve never considered before.

As @Miss_Lillyrose can attest, they’ve already changed jobs three times. Then, they ended up becoming the owner of their own business. If the option is available to you and you have a great support system, take the plunge and start looking for a new job when you can. You might be surprised how much happier you can be somewhere else.
