I gave notice at my job today because I am taking my writing business full-time. Yay!
I gave a month’s notice, which is requested for my position. My boss asked A) if they could do anything to keep me (no) and B) if I could stay longer – part-time throughout the summer or some other arrangement.
I’m having all kinds of people pleasing thoughts. “I shouldn’t leave them in the lurch.” “They really need me.” “I should help out.” But I know that people pleasers are liars! The truth is that I don’t want to stay longer. I want to leave in a month. I’m still creating lots of thoughts that are making me feel guilty.
Do I just accept the guilt and tell the truth anyway? Or should I try to reframe my thoughts?
