I am new to this forum but am readings this blog for quite a time. A few words to my person: I am 33, live in Germany and work as an IT Manager for about 7 Years now in the same company. After i studied computer science i moved back in to my parents home to pay back my students debt early. After 1 Year of work it was payed back but i am still here living for small money.
I accumulated 65k € which is not really enough to retire. My problem is now the work i am doing. I am responsible for everything but rewarded for nothing. I dont want to work there anymore because i want to keep my mental health.
I can bypass a period of time with the money i have saved but i am afraid of making a great mistake if i quit my secure income. To look for another job while working is not anymore an option because i work in a seasonal company and i want to leave now before the next season starts (i have to stay 2 months when i quit). I have in mind to become my own boss but that is "just an idea".
My fear is that i am stuck without income in my parents home forever ;) My RE goal will also be in danger if i start to take money from my savings. Would you suffer and keep the job or do you think it is ok to take a rest, try something different and start again? I know that the decision to make has to be done by me but maybe you could give me some suggestions. Writing this down has alredy helped me to sort my thoughts.
Thanks for any advice
