Tomorrow (monday) I need to put in my 2 weeks notice, but I'm terrified. I've only been there about 6 weeks, and I'm already quitting. I dont know what to say or how to approach my boss, I dont know what his response will be. I'm so fricken scared. I NEED to do it, but I dont know if I will actually be able to when the time comes. Any tips?

That sucks. Is there a particular reason you're leaving that job?

To be able to give you a hint one would have to know more about the circumstances.

It's a difficult job, I already am starting to feel burnt out and I'd like to save my mental health as much as I can. It just takes a toll on both my mind and body and frankly I want an easier job

Every new job is exhausting at the beginning because you have to learn a lot of new things and get used to the new conditions and the other employees and bosses.

However, if you really feel that you can't do it, I would first talk to your boss.
Maybe you can get another task or support.
An honest conversation can sometimes work wonders.

I can relate to this situation, i've quit a job before because of this. Is it your first job though? if it's your first I would suggest you hang in there a little bit longer and see if it gets any better.

It's not my 1st job. It's the 3rd healthcare job I've had and I think healthcare just isn't for me.

I see. It's probably best to quit then and start applying for jobs and hopefully you can find something you enjoy.

Did you quit? Healthcare can be caregiving...did you do that? That's a super horrible job in my experience. I have lot of trauma from doing it briefly.

I've always just ignored callls and shit, unless you need a recommendation letter or sum I don't see why you have to talk to anyone. You're not actually a slave unlike how everyone is memeing about it.

Assisted living is so awful and triggering to work in. I understand why you quit.
