I’m now officially an unemployed breathing object and I’m very happy of my decision after being skeptical in quitting my day job. There are many disadvantages and advantages of being self-employed, but I’m always looking forward to the “pros” of freelance life and pretending to be blind about the “cons” of it.

After writing a resignation letter, I was surprised that we Filipinos have the highest rate of resigning employees in the whole world, based on Google Trends.
Filipinos are always looking for Resignation Letter samples that’s why the search trend is so high. Because of this, I was also enticed to share my resignation letter online so that people who wants to quit their day (and also night) job and are looking for it can use it and edit it freely to quench their resignation letter thirst. Hehehe. But, before using this resignation letter, please leave a link back to this blog or add my URL at the end of your resignation letter before printing it or before sending it through e-mail. (Nahh.. you can use it freely if you want to without the link back or any copyright marks).
Here’s my resignation letter! Yay!
Dear Sir ______,
Before anything else, allow me to express my sincerest apology for all the disappointments that I had brought to you. I am very sorry for being absent without permission and delaying all the pending assignments. It was a momentary lapse of judgment on my part and I regret doing so.
For the past two years, I have been so happy and thankful to be a part of the team.
My experience working for the company is wonderful. You have welcomed me with open arms. Despite my shortcomings as an employee, you have remained patient and supportive in building me professionally and personally. For these, I am forever grateful to you and the company. I have always considered it an honor and privilege to be a part of the family.
Unfortunately, there have been some realizations on my part lately. The goals I want to pursue no longer coincide with the company goals. As you may recall I cannot finish the tasks that you have assigned to me. It took me so many days to finish a specific job that was supposed to be done in a day or two. Quite frankly, I don’t want to resign but I deemed it necessary. I was supposed to file for an indefinite leave but this is too much to ask. Hence, I decided to resign. It was a difficult decision to make but in the end I had to be honest to myself and also put the company’s interest in mind.
I am not applying or accepting any job offers from other companies as of the moment. I plan to do some freelance work while sorting out what I would really like to pursue in the future. I’ll be back in the office to get my stuff and turn over my work this week or next week. I would be glad to extend my assistance to facilitate the transition of the work to the next employee if needed.
Once again, thank you for all the invaluable lessons you have taught me and making me a part of the company. I will be missing you and the whole team as well.
I love you all, really.
Drama no? Hehehe. That’s all for now. Good luck nalang sa akin 🙂
