    I hate my job more every week.

    I just want to be done with this and spend most of my time in nature. The more time I spend in forests, and the more I learn survival skills, the less bearable industrialized society becomes. I feel like shards of myself are flaking away and embedding in trees and rivers, where...

    Did I Waste 4 Years In College And $30,000 To Get A Receptionist Job?

    I didn't start college until I was 25. My parents had a good income but they blew it all on garbage, so I didn't qualify for many grants, but they didn't help me out so I had to wait until their income no longer counted against me when it came to loans and grants. I worked all...

    I need a holiday. I keep holding on

    for the weekends, but then I remember that I'm working the weekends to make some extra money. Just a few more and I'll can get all my parts ordered. It'll be worth it; I swear. That's how delusions work, right? Just keep lying to yourself until you believe it?

    I don't like who I am

    as a person right now. My work situation has me so stressed that I think about walking out everyday. I have nightmares about it and when I am there I at times feel like I can't breathe and at times cry. Work is making me into this person whom I don't like. I am negative, I...

    I'm always messing up

    and getting into trouble or giving people wrong information and getting yelled at. It's soooooo stressful and I just can't deal with it. I physically shake from stress and some days my vision goes all blurry and I almost pass out from the stress of it all.

    We are often detatched from what is most worth

    fighting for; our busy work consumes our day but it's not our life's work. Most do not feel a stark, stirring life purpose- they don't hunger for it in the morning or orient their day to its pursuit. A life of greater joy, power, and satisfaction awaits those who consciously...

    Yes, it pays well but so does the misery. It's a thankless job where people would rather point out your mistakes than praise you for doing a job well done. My manager pulled me aside one day and told me she thought I was doing a good job but she said that she couldn't say it in...
