Hey there!

Everyone's life is different. For the one who live to meet ends meet and to pay off debts, happiness is the lowest priority to happy-rainbow-sprinkles job. I think an exception will be if it gets toxic eg bosses etc. But do make sure you find a job first before you quit if thats an option for you.

Financial planning is an integral part of life. You can find me at this platform to find out more.

Definitely. If you are going to spend hours after hours on the job, it means that you are spending hours after hours being unhappy! This could lead to more serious complications such as mental illnesses. Do your best to look for another job in the meantime, and you'll likely find yourself happier!

It definitely is. The health being of a person depends on both physical and mental wellness and studies have shown that being unhappy at work can cause both mental and physical illnesses. The question is whether the unpleasantness can be reduced vs remove; because going to a new place does not guarantee you a happier experience.

Your financial well being and economy at the point of time can also be a make or break point for this decision.

Of cos its a valid reason to quit one's job, just like its also a motivation for some here to pursue a FIRE lifestyle

Its another matter if you can afford to quit your job, irregarless of your emotion status though
