Close one door and open another. It’s not easy leaving something you enjoy but there are those times you absolutely need to. Whether it’s a job, a role, or an interest, walking away from something that’s no longer right for you can be a frightening proposition. But when you know it’s the right thing to do, rest easy knowing that many others have left things before you only to find things worked out great. See these poll results for evidence. So, be deliberate and thoughtful but do make your decision and move on. Great new things are awaiting!
