If the real problem is your lack of autonomy, how do you know that moving and switching jobs is going to guarantee that changes?
As for taking a month off. Sorry if this comes across harshly, but what is it with Millenials and this "taking time off"? I make pretty good money, have a good job and I couldn't afford to take a month off. I'm also not sure how that will get your head straight IF your problem is lack of autonomy in your job. If I were to psychoanalyze you (you did ask for advice ) I'd say you just want an excuse to take a break for awhile. If that's the case and you can afford it, then take a break, but remember one thing....you can't run from your real problems, you will always carry them with you no matter where you go and for how long you are away.
I don't but it will either be worth the risk or it won't I guess. I suppose the reason I've started to dislike it is due to those changes that have removed the control I once had. (I'm a self confessed control freak!)
The micromanaging has gotten extremely bad the last few months also, and is down to others not doing their jobs properly I guess.
Not harsh at all, I'm not looking to take time off for the hell of it but just feel like my head isn't in the right place at present for a number of reasons but it's only something I'm contemplating for now. If I do relocate, I'm going to have to get my national insurance number first anyway, and with being born in the UK that should speed the process up for me. I do miss my family, I live alone and am not in the vicinity of any close family so I rely on trips over for weekends every now and then, that's another reason I'm contemplating relocating.
I haven't got a hard life or anything, just feel like I need a change I guess?
