The period of time between submitting your resignation notice to the company or informing the company that you want to resign and the date of resignation?
It's very awkward, isn't it?
（I can understand that you need a few weeks or a month to take over (even though you're not doing anything wrong).
I have experienced this many times.
I can't get used to that atmosphere no matter how many times I do it.
This time, I would like to talk about how I got through this awkward period (mindset-wise). (I am not saying that you can just use a resignation agency.)

Awkward experiences I had during the period after I decided to retire.
When I decided to leave a certain company, I had to stay at the company for about a month to take over.
There was still a lot of work to be done, so a month was a reasonable time frame. （I wanted to quit right away.)
In that company, there was a boss A who was a good friend of mine. One day I and another boss, B, worked overtime together and we went to push our leaving cards together.
I passed Boss A at that time, and he said, "Hey! XX-kun (Boss B's name)! (I'm standing next to him, too...)
No, it's not a big deal, but this was a very painful and shocking experience. Until then, he had been calling my name properly.
In other words, to Boss A, I was no longer a subordinate, but an outsider employee.
I understand the sentiments of those on the other side of the conversation, but I wish they hadn't been so blatant about it because there was only a month left.
I feel awkward after submitting my resignation. The cause is the way people look at me.
To begin with, the reason why we feel awkward in the period leading up to resignation is because we are thinking about how people around us will look at us: "I bet people don't think well of me," "Did my resignation add to my workload? What do people around me think of me?
How do others evaluate me...?
It would be good for my mentality if I could just think, "I'm lucky to finally quit," but I think there are many people who can't think positively.
After all, when you retire, you are going to be inconvenienced in some way.
But whatever the reason for quitting, if you have already decided to resign by submitting a resignation letter and properly announcing your intention to quit, there is no benefit to you in worrying about others' evaluations of you at that workplace anymore.
Because they are people I will no longer be involved with in the rest of my life.
So there's no need to be scared of the reactions of those around you.
I know I know, but .... I know, I know, I know, but I'm not comfortable with it.
It's comforting to know I'll never see these people again.
As I mentioned earlier, you made it a point to think, "If I have already officially decided to quit, I will not meet with these people.
I had three awkward occasions like this before, and when I eventually quit, I never saw them again (except for a few, close friends).
Naturally, the colleagues I never wanted to see again, or those with whom I felt awkward, I never saw them again, and I have never seen them since then.
So I felt a little better when I started to think, "It's no use worrying about the stares I'm getting from people I won't meet in the future. It's really a mindset thing.
In the past, I had a very awkward and stressful period in my life, and I thought I was going to get depressed. There was a time when I was so stressed out that I thought I was going to get depressed just from this period of time.

But after I quit, I wondered why I had been so concerned about the eyes of people I would never see again.
At the time, I was frantic and jumpy, but when it was over, I was in an easygoing state of mind, and I felt that I did not need to be so nervous.
Finding a job that I can do at my current place of employment has eased my anxiety about being in the company.
I'm going to deviate from the mindset for a moment.
One of the most awkward reasons is when the person says, "I've already decided to quit, so I don't have much work to do.
In a situation like this, it would be even more jittery and awkward. What are you doing here at work? It's like, "What are you doing here?
What if people around me think, "What is she doing when she's supposed to quit?" And I feel extremely anxious about being at work when I have nothing to do.
To avoid this, I desperately looked for things I could do - and I did.
A typical example is the preparation of handover documents.
Fortunately, I had a lot of handover material because I was in sales and had clients and I was the one doing the grueling development when I was in IT.
Therefore, I tried to prepare such documents in detail and meticulously if I had no other priorities before quitting.
If the handover was going to be a free time after the creation was finished, it was a chore, or if there were materials that had not been organized, I would do them, and by being proactive in my work, I was able to fulfill my role until I left and alleviate my anxiety.
Well, my personal experience.
This is how I got through the awkward period after submitting my resignation.
Not all people can make it through with this mindset, but in my case, I have persevered like that - and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to make it through with this mindset.
It would be easier if I could quit quickly and spontaneously depending on the situation.
