    Are you feeling anxious, unsure, regretful, scared, etc? Quitting a job can be liberating AND terrifying. If your job sucked really bad, it's great that you quit it, but you may be wondering if you did the right thing. Reassure yourself that you did it for a reason and you stepped up and made a strong decision for yourself. Feel confident. You deserve to have a job that you LOVE! smile

    If you want quick fixes to feel happy and motivated, try doing a bunch of things you couldn't do because of your crappy job. Volunteer, spend time with loved ones, search for opportunities that'll help you grow as a person.

    I know how you feel, and you did the right thing. Be true to yourself and you will find happiness.

    I'm sort of in the same boat as you are. Just keep reminding yourself why you left that sorry job in the first place.

      Thanks, Bubblegum Jones! I don't want to work full-time or for anyone else, so I definitely appreciate that! I resent the housework & cooking, etc. a lot of days but have no excuse not to do it now lol! I think I am bored too & feel guilty ab

    Make a list of things you need to do and things you might like to try.  Start with easy household chores and mix in some fun things too. 

    Checking off the items on the list as you get through them will give you a sense of accomplishment and help motivate you to push on to more chores and new adventures.

    Start with small projects to turn your attitude around.  Even a small sense of accomplishment will build momentum.

      Give me some adventurous ideas! :-) The things I love to do cost money which I am making less of.

    Take time to relax and get over the stress of being in a job you didn't like and get back to your old self. Being in a job you don't like can be depressing.  So try to think of things you wanted to do that you couldn't do when you were working. Chat to friends you couldn't chat to when you were working.

      So, just when I started reaching out to friends like I've never had time to, I pick up this inflexible online part-time job. sad It's okay, but I feel like a failure with the household stuff again.

    I think I can't relax about it because I need to add at least a little income to the household. I feel like I'm doing a lot of researching and stressing out and a little housework... and not doing anything especially well.

    Now I found an online job, and they are trying to require I be available from 8-4. Didn't I say I don't want to be cornered, working for someone else, in an inflexible situation?! Now I'm making less but pretty much working full-time stuck at the computer all day! So, I'm still home all day but not achieving much for my household and still not the happy mommy and wife I want to be.

    But I dare not go back to earning nothing. I don't want to feel/seem lazy. It's so taxing not knowing what I want to do with my life or what will make me happy. I have two Masters, but I have yet to truly love any job! My parents can't believe I am "wasting my education and skills". Of course I don't see it that way!  I don't know if I ever want to work again. But if that's the case, I better love being a stay-at-home mom/wife, right? But (like I said before) I don't; that unfortunately doesn't excite or fulfill me. I really wish it did. But then again, it may be because of money that I won't let myself.... I hope I made a little sense lol!
