After I have thought for a while I finally made up my mind and finalized my decision for leaving my job and go back to Philippines to try working there. Just talked to my manager today and told her my plan to quit my job and my reasons. She understood my plans although she tried to stop me but I told her I just want to try working in Philippines and as well as be with my family. I also told her that this is a really hard decision for me leaving the company that I have worked for 4 years but sometimes people need to make a tough decision for the sake of family. If someday I am not lucky enough to find a job that will cover our expenses I might consider going back here.
Sometimes we have to make a very tough decision in life without knowing if it might be the right choice or not. Now I am about to make a tough choice or decision that I have never done in my life. There might be consequences to face but I know God is on my side whatever might happen.
Leaving the job that I have done for 7 years is a tough decision and I need to think many times before making any decision. If I quit my job and go home to look for another job might be risky and will take some time to find a job with good salary but in the other hand, maybe it is time for me to go back and be with my family. I don’t want to work in abroad forever and leave my family behind without watching my kid grow up.
My brother was telling me that there are lots of risk if I come home now, he told me that I should think carefully because I have a stable job already here in Taiwan and if I go back to Philippines to work I will start again with new career and new path of life and which is quite scary if I think about it.
I am glad that my wife supports me all the way even though she is quite scared on what the outcome might be. I think I should try going back to Philippines to work, I will never know if I don’t try it.
“The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn.”
What I am going to do now is to make a tough decision whether I am going to quit my job and go back to Philippines to find a new job. There are many reasons why I would like to quit this job.
1. This kind or nature of job I always have to handle problems of workers and sometimes I get into argument with them in which I really dislikes.
2. Long period of orientation in the production line, I am not choosing work but I really can’t go into the production line and stand for long hours. I do have a bad back pain.
3. My son is growing up and I am not around to see him grow up.
There are more reasons why I was thinking to quit this job. I am not afraid to go back to Philippines because I know there are lots of companies needs mandarin speaker and I think I am suitable for the job. I also need work right away when I get back to Philippines because I have family to support. I hope I am making the right decision and not a harsh decision. May God help me to get through this.
