I hate my job, and I hate my life. I just can’t stand this anymore! I’m sick and tired of doing the same thing; the problems seem to get bigger and bigger, and I feel like there is no way out! I HATE MY JOB! I can’t keep doing this!
I used to think that way. I was under a lot of pressure, responsible for a team that wasn’t working, always trying to solve problems, working 12 to 14 hours per day, six days a week and it seems I couldn’t catch a break. At this point, something changed my life; my girlfriend told me “I’m pregnant!”
I was scared at first; I keep thinking how can I take care of my kid with this job? I will barely spend time with him! I’m not making enough money to his college, or just to buy the things he needs! I hate my job. I’m unhappy! How am I going to make him happy?
A heart beat changed my life
A couple of weeks after we went to the doctor, and I heard, for the first time, my baby’s heart; it was AMAZING; the best sound I’ve ever heard! I realized I had to stop complaining and do something about it instead.
So I went back to school to earn a Master’s degree. I stop spending on things I really didn’t need, got married, and started to look for a better job. Being in the master’s program showed me a lot of things. I learned about other company’s problems, other people’s problems and I was able to make great new friends who gave me wonderful advice.
The moment I stop complaining about hating my job, I was actually able to solve problems and fix my team. I still hated my job, but at least I had fewer problems to work with. Thanks to my new friends, I had a proposal from a different company. I talk with my boss and a couple of days later and he asked me to take care of an opening position, increased my salary, and offered fewer work-hours.
You can change too!
I used to hate my job, but I wasn’t doing anything to make my life better;. I just kept complaining, wondering when will things improve? I love my life now. My kid gave me the right motivation to change, and I keep doing it every day. If you hate your job, I suggest you stop complaining and do something about it! Find the right motivation for yourself and start changing today! There are better jobs, and better ways to live. You have to work for it and make an effort, but trust me; it’s really worth it! Are you willing to change or would you like to keep hating your job?
