I confess that when people tell others that they should just quit their job because it’s making them unhappy, it bothers me. It’s not always so easy. Some people have employment barriers like disabilities or age that make finding a job at all much harder than it is for others. Financial realities mean that having a job is a necessity for the majority of people, so maybe instead of saying “just quit!”, they should just listen and try to be supportive. Sometimes people just need to vent and they’re not asking for advice.
