Should you ever quit your job without a backup?

When you hate your job, everything sucks. When you're there you think, “Man, I can’t believe I have to be here” and when you're not there you think, “Man, I can’t believe I have to go back to that place.” It’s time to get out. Although it’s recommended you have a job lined up before you leave, there are those that can’t take it and quit outright. Some people may find this irrational while others think it’s a great method to get your life in order. Have you ever done this?

Like we mentioned before, when work sucks, every aspect of your life sucks. Of course, in the early stages of job-hating, you try to reason with yourself. “You need to pay the bills somehow,” you say. “It’s just a job. Be grateful you have one.” Your friends and family echo this sentiment. But then you realize that application after application just isn’t getting noticed, and the positives you try telling yourself have become empty words at this point.

Quitting with no backup isn’t a failure or cowardly. It can be super necessary for your physical, mental, and emotional health. It’s also a pretty good strategy to really concentrate on getting something new. Think about it: You can dedicate your free time to searching, and won’t be in an environment that’s stressing you out anymore, giving you a fresh perspective and a better attitude. What’s irrational about that? As the ghost said to the unsuspecting family, "GET OUT."

The thing about bills is that they’re real, and not at all spectacular. If you leave your job without a new position set up, you could very well be setting yourself up for another stressful situation that doesn’t result in a paycheck. Really take the time to assess your situation, and make sure it’s not a rage quit that’ll have you shooting yourself in the foot.

We know it’s rough. We know your manager sucks. We know that the boss of the company rags on you for (God forbid) leaving at the agreed time when they do jack and come in late. But just hang in there. You’ll get something new that won’t give you fantasies of setting something on fire. And rest assured on that last day, the walk out will be all the more delicious.
