What To Do When Things Get Miserable In Your Job

IMG_7944

These last days have been a living hell for me. It’s true. I’m not afraid to admit it. At my day job I was over-worked and under-paid. I was spending my whole day associating with people with zero common interests and low expectations in life, serving people in a non-creative way and dealing with a bitch-face boss that was jumping down my throat and was expecting me to be grateful for it. But enough is enough. I called it quits and I resigned. And it felt so freaking good! So my advice on all of you out there you have a feeling that something just isn’t right is to listen to your guts!

Even better, make a list with all the ugly things that make you miserable. Then place another one next to it and write down the good ones that go with them (if any), like in my case there was none! When you’re done compare the two lists and besides the obvious, which one is longer, identify the quality of each argument. For example, if the pros are more of the cons maybe you could bear that boring job a little longer. On the other hand, if they are less but they have a huge impact on your mental or physical health, like in my case, you should reconsider keeping that position.

Yes, salary that’s meant to pay your bills and insurance is vital, but spending your precious time on just wandering around the office, or shop, or cafe that you ‘re working and dealing with unpleasant and bitter people all day is sure no catch at all!

Today it ‘s raining cats and dogs, it’s windy and my freshly washed laundry is all wet and messy, because it was laid out on the balcony, but I haven’t felt better and lighter for days now! This is how relief feels like.

Do you have any similar experiences with awful jobs you hated? How did you handle it? Please tell me on the comments below, I’m very much interested in hearing your story!
