We are often not happy when it comes to change. We are afraid that the change can bring something bad, and we usually prefer the things we already know. Ironically, we don’t realize that only the change is constant, and that includes career change as well. You can resist it, you can avoid it, but once you start the change, it only means that a wonderful new start is ahead of you, a fresh, clean slate for brand new achievements. But when it comes to leaving a job, change can be especially stressful. Your routines and small daily rituals can turn leaving the familiar environment behind into a frightening experience. After all, you have spent years as a part of an organization. You soaked its culture and became an integral part of it.
And then there are personal connections with the people you are working with. Whether your co-workers became your friends or they just remained acquaintances, leaving your work for a new career also means saying goodbye to them and the sense of teamwork you developed together. But sometimes in life, career change is necessary in order to move on. You may find yourself at a dead end in your current workplace or you realize that you can make your full potential in another position. As stressful as it might be to leave a job, sometimes staying can be even worse.
The truth is, our jobs have such great influence on our lives. And although some people prefer to stay in their comfort zones, you should take control of your life and see how it becomes better.
