I Want To RESIGN For Personal Reasons

Ashish was struggling at his workplace for last 6 months. He was trying to give his 100% but was still told time and again that he was not working up to the mark. He used to feel a knot in his stomach nowadays whenever he woke up in the morning. He felt uneasy and restless every time his boss called him to give feedback or ask for updates. The workload was becoming unmanageable. No sooner than one task gets over, he is given a pile of other assignments. It was difficult to keep a track and the list of assignments to be completed only seemed to be getting longer over time. He felt that his boss was not understanding of his workload but cared more about number of targets achieved in a day. He had a draft of resignation letter ready.

But all he could write the reason for his resignation was- PERSONAL REASONS.
