I was once told by my college teacher:
Sometimes, we need to let people go for them to grow.
And it happening to me at this moment. I work in a company as a front end developer / designer besides managing a graphic designer. And recently I told my designer that if she thinks this company is a good place for her to grow, then stay. If not, I told her to go out there and pursue her dreams.
She is a person who has a positive attitude, willing to learn and could be an asset for a company. But I believe should could go far. Else, I won’t tell her that.
At the same time, another colleague would also love to leave the company and search for new challenges outside. All I can tell and share with the others is that — it is hard to see and let people go, but one day, hopefully we would meet up as a better person we are now.
