Do you hate your job? Take heart!
"I hate my job!"
It's something that almost all of us have said at some point in our lives.
Unfortunately, in a bad economy it's not so easy to just go out and replace the job you hate. Here's a few tips for getting through it until something better comes along.
This won't last forever. The likelihood that you'll be where you're working right now for the rest of your life is pretty slim. If you truly hate what you do for a living but you're able to hide it well enough to keep your job, chances are much better that in a few months or years, something better will come along and you'll be able to do that instead.
There's always that chance that the new job will be even worse than the one you're in now, but try to stay positive. There's also a decent chance that it will be better than your current job! It may be just what you've been waiting for - that dream position that you wake up eager to do each day.
But either way, that new opportunity is coming for you someday so be sure to keep it in mind.
You are not alone. Take comfort in the fact that all over your city, right at this very moment, hundreds if not thousands of people hate their soul-sucking jobs just like you do. That crabby cashier and morose-looking mailman aren't just there to serve and depress you, they are there in solidarity with the plight of the job-hating worker. So take heart, because your brothers and sisters in the world of crappy employment are out there hating their jobs with you in spirit.
The restroom is the best place to cry. Just about every workplace has a restroom for their employees. So unless you're a truck driver on the docks in Los Angeles or someone who picks fruit for a living, when you feel despondent about your crappy job just lock yourself in the restroom for a good cry. It's very cathartic!
And last but not least, please realize that everyone who doesn't currently have a job and wants one, wishes they had your problem. You're doing what all day? And for how much? Well, they're not doing that or making anything, and they'd be just as happy to take your job as they would be to take a nice walk on a pretty spring morning. So take heart in the fact that at least you've got a job!
I hope you find these tips on how to get through the day when you hate your job to be as helpful as I do. What are some of your tips for getting through the day with a crappy job?
