This is to bring to your notice my resignation due to bad mental health. I spent quality time there and enjoyed its great working ambiance. It was difficult for me to make up my mind about this but after getting consulted with specialists I made a final decision. It would be in my favor of me if I follow their recommendation. The burdensome working schedule was getting on my nerves, and I became unable to focus on work. I cannot execute the duties with the same eagerness and therefore writing this to ask for an immediate resignation. Thanking in anticipation.
