I had a leader that was only interested in profitability and not my success as a partner. She gave others preferential treatment and purposely (I believe) excluded me and stifled my growth in the team. She simply didn't respect me, the amount of effort I put into my role, or sacrifices I made to deliver...it was never good enough. Finally, I realized that the job was ruining my life, so I quit on the spot. Best decision I ever made.
I just got extremely frustrated by the empty promises, the lack of diligence on the part of the management, the toxicity of the work culture, terrible hours.

I did a certificate that was 40 hours a week, intensive. I wouldn't have had time to study and do the course at the same time.

I left because I had too much going on at once. It was the start of a new school year at university and I was a part of the women's volleyball team, it was my last year, and I would not have been able to put the required amount of energy to do my job at the level required

I thought that anything could be better than being told what to do by people who didn't even attempt to earn my respect.
