Yesterday was a first for me: I quit a job. Not left a job for a better opportunity with cake and good wishes from colleagues, but quit in a messy little confrontation with the boss and was out the door. I didn't do it in a fit of anger--I had a better gig lined up--and the "job" I left was an unpaid internship, pretty much a volunteer position. Yet it was ugly nonetheless, no doubt because the guy running the show is a petty man with a Napolean complex. Has anyone here ever quit a job? What was it like?

Nancy D., Please fill in some more details! This sounds juicy, and enlightening. I hope you are feeling good about everything now. What's next for you?

Quitting is not to be feared. Everybody should read "What Should I Do With My Life?" by Po Brosnan. Yes, Po. Betty found this book enormously helpful, humane, and liberating.
