I’m planning to resign from my job in 30 days. I cannot be paid out for remaining PTO.

I’ve rarely used PTO, so I started my year with about 40 days. I have used 15 this year, so far, and I have many valuable things I’d still like to use at least some of the remaining time to do.

I am using one day today- for an important appointment. But, instead of relaxing into the day, I’m feeling guilty and anxious. My untamed mind is worrying that I’m doing the “wrong thing” that I’m “taking too much time for myself” or that my use of this much time could sabotage a recommendation from my employers.

I’ve accrued the time. I want to use it. But, the fear and guilt is really getting me.

Looking for help with insights! Thank you!
