I have been at my current job for a year and 3 months (a teller), and have become very close with a few of my co-workers. I am part time and receive no benefits. We are union and I am next in line for full time but that could 2-3 years before something opens up, and even then I've heard horror stories that people with lower seniority can still take the position. My hours fluctuate wildly and I could have 10-15 hours a week one month and 40 hours the next month depending on what branch I work at. Sometimes I have to drive 50 minutes to work at a branch to cover lunches for 2.5 hours then drive home. My job is very stressful- constantly being yelled at/cussed out/treated terrible by customers because they've overdrawn their account or they can't have their way, we get the brunt of it even if it's not our fault. Outside of the few co-workers I've become close to, it can be VERY very catty. I am not that type of person. I try to be nice and get along with everyone. Some days I have panic attacks and have to go to compose myself in the bathroom because people can get so down right rude, and I've cried on a few occasions I've been so over whelmed. I guess I should also add I can be a very shy and soft spoken person, and I sometimes let things get to me a little too much. I already am a very anxious person and have been diagnosed with anxiety disorder due to the amount of times it happens to me..but due to no health insurance I cannot go get help anymore. We were on my husband's insurance but he switched jobs to go work for the family small business that does not offer anything currently. Recently I've been offered a interview at our local hospital for a position as a secretary/transcriptionist in a very relaxed environment. As of right now, I am the only one they are interviewing- my friend's mom works in the department as well as my sister in law formerly worked there (she was promoted to another department) and I basically have the job, the interview is just a formality. This position is also part time, but it offers great benefits, steady hours, I know most of the people that work there and they are genuinely nice, and this position will become full time quickly. I am also in school for Executive Office Administration, so this opportunity has me very hopeful. For some reason though, I cannot get this guilty feeling to go away about leaving my current job. I am not happy, and the negatives out number the positives. I think part of it is that I am afraid to lose the closeness of the co-workers I have made friends with, as silly as that sounds. I know this new job (if I really do get it) will be better for my mental health in the long run. My husband and I have been without health benefits for over a year now, so this is very big for us, and I will finally be able to get my thyroid tested to see if it is the cause of my severe anxiety. I guess I also feel guilty leaving this job so soon. I worked for my last employer over 6 years before I decided I needed to move on. Can anyone give me advice on how to get over this guilt or if you were/have been in a similar situation? I know the answer is pretty clear cut on what I need to do, but why do I feel so guilty?
