Sample Resignation Letter Due to Stress

Stress is one of the major factors that makes people either lose their jobs or give up on them. 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, since the employer does not want you to burn out and harm yourself – and his business!

A resignation letter that is written to ask for release from a job needs to be short and to the point. You do not have to divulge information that is too personal to you, but you will have to provide some hint of what has stressed you enough to make you resign from the position. Be honest and articulate. Do not mince your words. Make it clear that you have no issues with the company – and that it is your own personal problem that has made you decide to leave your job.

Whatever your reasons are, they have to be made obvious in a resignation letter, even if you do not want to provide too many details. Provide the standard notice and tell the employer that you are ready to train someone in your place. And this is what your resignation letter should look like:

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


Dear Mr. Fox:

It is with great regret that I am writing this letter to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as Marketing Manager at PIP Inc. Please note that as per the terms laid out in my contract, I am providing a 30 days’ notice of my intent to leave the company, January 28, 2017 being my last day at work here.

Over the past few months, I have been extremely depressed due to a lot of reasons – some personal and some work-related. The amalgamation of these two has wreaked havoc on my mental and emotional health, and is threatening to affect my work. I believe that it is in the best interest of both me and the company that I resign from my position 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.
