Sample Resignation Letter Due to Stress

Updated on March 10, 2019

Stress is one of the major factors that makes people either lose their jobs or give a resign.

Before the stress of working an extremely hectic routine gets to you, it is best to take a deep breath and resign from your position.

A resignation letter that is written under these circumstances is almost always accepted without questioning or comment as the employer will not want any harm, of course.

How to Write a Resignation Letter Due to Stress?

•  A resignation letter due to stress needs to be short and to the point.

•  Be honest and articulate.

•  Do not mince your words.

•  Make it obvious that you have no issues with the company.

• Emphasize that it is your own personal problem that has made you decide to leave your job.

• Above all, you do not need to disclose your personal information. Alternately, you may give some hint about your issue.

• Provide a standard notice telling the employer that you are ready to train someone in your place.

Mr. Raymond Fox
Marketing Director
PIP Inc.
7 Post Avenue
Tupelo, MS 66321


Dear Mr. Fox:

I am writing this letter to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as Marketing Manager at PIP Inc. As per my contract terms, I am providing a 30 days’ notice of my intent to leave. April 10 will be my last working day.

Over the past few months, I have been extremely depressed due to a lot of reasons. Some personal and some work-related. This amalgamation has wreaked havoc on my mental and emotional health. In fact, it is threatening to affect my work. Given these points, I believe that it is in the best interest of both me and the company that I resign so that no harm is done on either side.

I am truly grateful to you for providing me with a chance to work at PIP Inc. and training me well to do the job. I hope that you can find a replacement for me soon so that I can provide assistance in training him or her before I leave.
