If you have worked every day at a job that steals your soul a little bit at a time, then you’ve probably dreamed day and night about being able to walk away. Things like money, location, hours, and a bunch of other factors go into if and when you can actually make that happen, though.
Luckily for these 14 people, they were able to quit for good – and then come back to tell us all how it’s going after they’d gotten free.
14. Ok, peace.
I hate that health insurance is tied to employment here.

13. I bet that was so cathartic.
It seems like they might not have survived that much longer.
12. The customer is not always right.
If someone tells you they are, you don’t want to work for them.
11. There are no promises.
Be kind to yourself.
10. Stay out of my life.
I walked away for a reason.
9. If it’s hurting you, you have to chuck it.
No one is going to value your health more than you do.
8. Smart AND talented.
Somehow I think she’s going to be ok.
7. They don’t pay you enough to kill yourself.
No one does.
6. Don’t do that to yourself.
You only get so many years, after all.
5. That sounds like a nightmare.
I’m glad they decided to get out.
4. How awful a realization.
They never valued them at all.
3. You don’t need that in your life.
Honestly, I hope you blew them up on social media on your way out.
2. It was a watershed moment.
The time had come.
1. Don’t feel guilty.
They will replace you before the door shuts behind you and never think twice.
As someone who has gotten free herself, I’m just so happy for them. No job is better than a toxic job, if you can make it happen.
Have you been able to quit a toxic job? Tell us in the comments how it went for you!
