I Hate My Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,899 People

    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 used to love it. I used to go into work early

    because I loved it and I love the people. In May 2014, I graduated from college and I decided to do nothing for a month; no looking for a job; no going back to school; no anything. I just wanted some time to unwind as school was demanding. I had such high expectations of myself...

    My boss loves to use speaker phone

    and literally he is one row over. He embarrasses the heck out of me since he used condencending language with me. Of course the whole office can hear him speak to me. Today he was going nuts looking for titles that I HAD NO IDEA WHERE THEY WERE SINCE I WAS ON VACATION AT THE...

    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...
