100% shows you made the right decision mateSo my work tried to hush up my departure in what seemingly appears to be a tantrum on their behalf.
No farewell or fanfare like all of the other staff get, and the staffing group are now pretty pissed off at my treatment (and have organised a farewell regardless). Many are thinking that if one of the best workers they have can go from hero to zero this quickly, then it can happen to anyone.
Many of my colleagues have checked in with me presuming that my mental health would have been affected but it truly hasn't been affected at all.
Never let your self worth be determined by how your work sees you. People are petty, and the adult world is still very much like high school. Work is work, and friends and family are friends and family. You can make valued and treasured friendships at work but never be lured into thinking the organisation itself is anything like a family.
