I really believe that I need to find a new job. I love my job now, but I really need to find something that pays more. When I first got my job, circumstances were different. My husband (then my boyfriend) had a great job and was bringing home enough for me not to work. But we were dating and I felt that I needed my own job. I found a job I love and was not concerned about the pay.
Now though, times are different. He lost his job shortly before we were married. Being on unemployment, we got by on regular bills but did get behind. He found a job, but it doesn't pay as well as his previou job did. Now every month we are trying to dig up money for basic bills. It feels like we will ever get ahead again.
I really love my job. And I have never quit a job before for the sake of getting a new one. Anytime I have ever quit has been because of moving away to school or moving out of state. The one time I tried to quit because I was fed up with the job, my boss talked me into working less days and I ended up working 2 jobs because I just couldn't let anyone down.
I would hate to quit because I feel like I am important part of our team and leaving just doesn't seem like a fair option. I know financially for my family it i something I should definitely do. It is just so hard to leave.
