Ah, the strength to walk away. It's a lot easier said than done, but some situations make it a lot easier than it could be.
Whether it's a job or a relationship, walking away from a place you've already succumbed to as your comfort zone is tough, no matter how obvious it is that it's time. But once you realize there's better out there for you, and you recognize how hard it is to ignore that, it makes the decision not only easier but achievable.
If you're finding yourself asking if it's time to walk away, consider the following questions for further insight on when it's truly time to walk away:
What Happens When You Mention Leaving?
This point can apply to both a job or a relationship, or any other situation that you might have to walk away from. For starters, don't get it twisted; it's not about coming up with an ultimatum to get their attention, or throwing out the idea of you leaving just to see how they really feel. Because in reality, if you have to ask, you probably already know the answer. But you should seriously evaluate what the reaction is when you make it clear you have no problem walking away from the situation.
Is it a response to where they couldn't care any less, or does it really make them look at the situation differently and realize your worth? You don't have to make threats or try to scare anyone. So think extra hard before you make this move because you might have to back it up with taking actual steps to walk away. If anything, their reaction should serve as enough evidence of whether you should really stay or nah.
