I haven't felt valued at my job for a long time. I've been there a LONG time (think almost 10 years), but in my heart I know that for my mental health, self-respect, and career growth, the best choice is to find something new.
However... I am so scared. Even hearing back from companies wanting to screen me gives me anxiety. I really struggle with change and transitions, so as frustrating as my job is sometimes, I'd almost rather just have everything fall through so I don't have to change anything.
I'm afraid whatever job I take will end up horrible and I'll reject making the mistake of leaving. Anyone have any advice on how to reframe my thinking here or get past this intense fear?
