Op, it is not the water around the ship that sinks the ship but the one that gets into the ship, do your job to the best of your ability and stop looking out for people to love you Cox not everyone will.
You are responsible for your happiness so do not let anyone walk the corridor of your life with their dirty feet, guide it jealously. DON'T LEAVE!

Really most commenters on this thread are commenting from a poverty mentality. In sane climes, he won't even come out to ask before he resigns. Personal joy and fulfilment is superior and should be placed over any job.
ls Nigeria a sane climes?

Endeavor to save first before attempting to leave otherwise, you may regret leaving. Use your good salary to set up for yourself what you will love to do. Don't leave to start looking for start up capital please.

Never tried quitting paid job because of a business you wanted to set up, it takes 5yrs for a business to weather through the storm so open your eyes

OP, please ignore the comments here. You have to understand that most Nigerians suffer from poverty of the mind. They believe that as long as the salary is good they can lose their dignity at the workplace just to earn that money. They don't understand what it's like to do something that doesn't bring you joy or peace of mind. The most success people you see today are people who focused on their strengths and followed their passion. Do yourself justice by setting a timeline to your departure while having a back up plan in case things backfire.

Bro, honestly this is one reason not to bring your issues here on Nairaland, Imagine one guy on the second page saying he hasn't been able to secure a job since 8 years he left school, so therefore this guy must not leave his job grin. If you ask him what skills does he have or does he have any portfolio of stuff he has done, the answer will be zero.

I've told myself that once I clock 1 year in my current company, I will quit. Money is not every thing. Even if it is to Quit & improve my skills, I will do it. No company owns my life.

I understand where you and the person you quoted are coming from and though i agree with you almost completely, let me tell you what i have observed from the group asking him to stay

Let me use this analogy to break it down a little bit as to why people stay in unhappy dead end jobs for the paycheck
1. Its almost as simple as when you were learning to ride a bike as a kid. You were scared beyond words the first time you did not have someone guiding you and the bike along or the training wheels were removed. you feared you will fall or get injured but you quickly realized either you did not fall and could stop, you fell but you had safety gear on ie helmets and knee guards (plans for the future) and when you fell, impact was minor and ultimately you got back on the bike and rode away with the wind behind you...

Its not everyone that can overcome that fear hence some people never learnt how to ride a bike and sometimes the fear what will happens keeps us from moving from our position. When you accept a Job offer, the fear of what will happen is always there no matter what and if you focus more on what negatives then you may never see the positives

@op: For those on the side of dont leave your job: A little nudge for them.... I just heard today that someone that left the organisation i left a few months before i did has lobbied her way back and got re-employed even during this covid. She left for better pay but found the conditions unsustainable hence the grass is not always greener on the other side and maybe she had a plan (she could lobby back to the firm) so she gave the new job a test run. The general consensus from the leave and stay group from what i can see is HAVE A PLAN (A, B if possible C & D)

All fingers are not equal but please do all you can to achieve happiness in this life as you chase your goals. Its only this 1 life you have and time waits for nobody

you could chose to go through life with training wheels and never take risk but ultimately you will never go faster than the speed of your guide and remain in your comfort zone.

Of course he doesn't have skills. The average Nigerian just goes to school to earn his/her degree and assume that a juicy job is waiting for them once they graduate. They refuse to develop themselves and get skills that will make them indispensable. Most Nigerians only look at the short term benefits. They don't consider the long-term goals/objectives. Their own is to "make money as soon as possible, get married and have a big boy/big girl lifestyle". That's why runs girls and g-boys are so rampant in society today.

Most of these lots don't know their worth and will accept any form of insults as long as they are paid. Poverty of the mind is a terrible thing my brother.
