Emotions of Changing Jobs

“Everyone has a place where they belong. It’s worth looking for.”

Recently, i’ve been searching for a sense of satisfaction from my work life. After changing my job three times in a single year, i’m narrowing down what brings me true happiness. Sadly. If I must continue working for the rest of my life, I had better find a job that brings me a significant amount of gratitude and belonging.

I’ve realised in this process of changing jobs, just how much of an imbalance it causes to the rest of your life.
I’ve decided to write a little post just about being in a new persons shoes to help them through their transition into their new role.

It can be mentally draining for some to say goodbye to their now “old” team. In hospitality especialy, you see the same people every day for at least 8 hours, laughing, bickering and complaing to eachother, It’s a cliche but you do become like a family, even if you all hate eachother.

For the intreverted amongst us. It may be very difficult knowing they’ll soon be expected to work closely with a new group of strangers. There’s a surprising amount of pressure on new team members. You have to take in new information and process it whilst meeting new people in a completely different environment. It sounds stressful just typing it.

Personal Life
Changing jobs is a lot like dust floating around your personal life. You can’t start sorting it until it’s settled. The first few weeks may be chaotic, disrupting your normal routine with different working hours, travel commutes, and even pesky work chats. You may even feel like it’s not worth the stress, but remember why you had taken the job in the first place. Change is good, I’m you’ll soon regain normality.

Missing You
It’s understandable if you start to miss aspects of your old job. Personally, I still miss my old team from 2021. But have a proper think about the reasons why you wanted to leave in the first place. Working with a solid team is great, but sometimes It’s not enough to counter the lack of leadership or opportunities for progression in your workplace. It’s probably a good thing you left when you did.

Before You Go
If you’re searching for the next step, see what possibilities your current work can offer you in terms of progression and new skills. However, if you’re still feeling the need to branch out yourself, leaving on good terms is always the best option. no point burning a perfectly good bridge.
