You didn’t quit, you found the strength to move on from a life that had become debilitating, irrespective of your dedication to or love of your profession.

Resilience is not about having the strength to doggedly keep going in the face of crushing emotional distress, it’s about having the strength to choose yourself and to make peace with yourself.

It sounds to me like that’s precisely what you’ve done.
