Should I Stay or Should I Go?
This image was taken from an Instagram meme page (@poorlymadepolicememes, if you're interested)... but the message is undeniably a true reflection of the mood we've been hearing recently. Should I stay or should I go? This "Clash" (sorry) of emotions and directions is frustrating, it's debilitating and it can lead to some dark places - speaking from experience. So firstly, please talk about it. Whether that's with your colleagues, family, mates, or us. Whoever you feel comfortable with. We'll always listen without judgement and offer you an honest appraisal of your options, inside and outside the job. There are always options, and positive ones at that. We can help you pursue them or we can just help you get a perspective on where you are now. Fundamentally, it's your life and you get to choose how you spend it. There is zero shame in walking away from something that isn't working for you any more - in fact I applaud your courage in doing so if that's what you choose to do. Equally, if you're staying - I do believe that the vast (but not so vocal) majority support what you do, so here's the Thank You they probably won't get a chance to give you. We've got a lot more blog posts on here that might help with some of the confusing feelings you may be having at the moment, so please have a read through them.
We're always happy just to have a chat, no obligation necessary. We can talk through your options and look at the practical and realistic next-steps to help you get to where you want to be.
