I was just talking to one of my coworkers here and she’s always been so sweet and brutally honest with me. I was telling her how I’m going to try and ask for an increase in pay for everything I do. I mentioned what my boyfriend said about how yes, I would make more money, but is it worth the…
very true. however, your job does not define you. your life is more than what you do to pay your bills. working with people will be hard no matter what. we all know this job is not your dream job, it will be hard for it to make you happy regardless of how much you make. maybe take a step back and detach yourself from your work and just realize that you are doing what you need to make money, you are doing other things to propel yourself into a job that you really want to do.
And that’s another reason why I’m staying is because I know it’s just a stepping stone until I get to where I want to be. Unfortunately, the way my boss is, I can’t really detach myself from this place the second I step foot in this building. It’s either his way or no way and he’s learned that I’m not as shy and quiet as I may seem when he crosses my lines. Even still, there’s no respect. That’s what bothers me the most.
i feel you. i’ve been doing a job i hate for 4 years now. i’ve finally started working towards a career, so there is a light at the end of the tunnel. i deal with the most rude, mean, and uncooperative public. so its not entirely the same. i wish you strength and luck to keep plugging along!
