I will be leaving my well paid, professional job on October 29th. There was nothing intrinsically wrong with the job or the company but it had reached the point where I had to admit I really wasn't having any fun. The turning point came when a friend I hadn't seen for a while asked if I still hated my job. I had become one of "those" people - someone who was miserable and talked about it. And I thought I had hidden it so well!
