I've seen how the "advice" threads have run in the past, so understand I'm a but hesitant to post this. But fuck it, here goes.
I have two options.
Option A, quit my current job, go full-time personal training. I am damn good at it, and know I will be successful with it.
Option B, stay at current job, continue being miserable, continue going literally crazy. As in, getting hives thinking about work, stress headaches, stomach cramps from anger, and sleep loss.
Damn, seeing that side by side, it's hard not to leave now.
Actually, as Wolbarret knows, I had been about to leave here over 6 months ago. But, family tragedy struck, and it was in my best interest to stay.
In dealing with the fallout from the loss of a loved one, I liquidated my assets and spent every penny I had saved over the last year aiding their survivor. So, here I am.
Now, I'm not bitter over the choices I've made. I know I'm at this place in my life because I choose to be.
My question, T-Nation, is simple. Would you say the more intelligent survival option is:
Strike out on my own, without three months of living money, and get the business fully operational, or
Stay at job which pays well, but is adversly affecting my mental and physical health, while [i]slowly[\i] rebuilding fiscal resources, and moving at a snail's pace establishing my training enterprise?
I've made my decision; I am interested, though, to see if it's a decision leading to self-destruction, or actualization.
