    Are you doing what you love and are passionate about? or are you settling for less?

    Do you believe that fear is used to get us to work sub-par jobs for less money?  We fear ruin so much in this economy that we allow ourselves to be treated poorly by employers? worked too many hours? Not paid an actual living wage anymore? etc.

    I am doing what I love but at the same time not doing it full time. I would love to write full time and I'm working to achieve this. I am working at the same time, not my dream job but it could be better. I guess I would never settle being treated badly out of fear, I would either fight or walk away. In the mean time while I still work I will keep my dream alive until I find my way.  Good question by the way :-).

    I'm currently unemployed which is why I became active in hubpages. I'm applying for positions that have nothing to do with what I want to do and I know that I will be miserable but in this economy you have to take what you can get! Also, many of the jobs I've looked at offer minimum wage, which definitely isn't livable anymore. Even at full time/overtime, you would be scraping by on minimum wage. I was paid min wage (two years ago) to work at a dept store going in at 4am, unloading the truck, unpacking boxes, lifting heavy things, etc. I realized that there was no way I should be getting paid that for what I was doing.

    Yes, unfortunately it is more an 'employer's market' these days, more than a job market favoring the employee. Taking a job that we do *not* love or are passionate about will more quickly drain us. To keep energy up for a job long term it needs to be something that energizes us, more than drain. We can do a more draining job for the short term, and then will need to recover in some way, either by taking a long break from it (longer than the usual vacation), or change to a job we enjoy more. I have a hub that explains more, if you are interested: Find a Career Job You Really Want.
