I’ve left my accounts job after nearly five years. I’ve been miserable for sometime and even though it will mean a reduction in money, I’ve got to leave. I submitted my resignation at the end of April and was persuaded to withdraw it and go back but that was a mistake. It became increasingly clear that my colleagues had no respect for me or my transition constantly deadnaming me and slagging me off behind my back. I can no longer cope with the dysphoria this triggers and I need to move on to somewhere I can be me. It hurts that things have come to this. I really thought that I had a future there and I’m hugely disappointed that the people I thought were my friends turned out to be nothing of the sort.
I’ve contacted the place that offered me a job at the beginning of May, they are still looking for people and seem genuinely pleased that I will be accepting a job with them. I start on June 26th which seems a long way off but it will give me chance to get my head straight.
