I gave up too much of what makrs me happy for this job. I’m search for a new one and am getting help from the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. I look forward to brainstorming soon.
This week is going to be a wacky but exciting week- I’m becoming an aunt.
Other thoughts I had: I feel guilty if I ever called off at this job because we are short staffed and I’m a great worker.
Somedays I really needed to and didn’t.
My therapist is right maybe I should start putting myself first more.
I agree you need to pout yourself first in life, I have done so much of not putting myself first. I have left lost and at times just utterly hopeless, But as i am putting myself first more and more, it has slowly been helping.
Congratulations on becoming an Aunt! That is very exciting!
What sort of job are you looking for?
I think that self-care is really important and if you feel overwhelmed at work, it’s probably better to look for another one. I recently quit a job I was at for a month because I started having allergies. I felt bad about it at first but I just didn’t know if I was going to have more allergies in the future. I am also getting help from a vocational counselor.
Is it ok if I don’t know exactly.
I typed/wrote what I’m looking for in a job. I’m going to brainstorm with a job coach and my vocational counselor. I’m sure they will help me find something better.
Absolutely! There are tons of jobs out there, but only one that will fit great for you!
I am the queen of staying at jobs because it’s easy and always trying to put others before myself.
At my last job there wasn’t anything I enjoyed. My boss was horrific, my coworkers were miserable and the pay was awful. I was consistently working on my days off and not getting paid extra. I put some resumes out there. I didn’t jump into anything I simply took my time. In a few months I got offered the job of my dreams. I was super scared, but I took it. That was 4 years ago. I love what I do and I’m so glad I took that chance.
You never know.
Thanks for the comment.
I’m hoping I can start this process really soon.
Hopefully I can take a couple week off of work soon too. I feel I deserve it.
I need to remember that it may take awhile to find the right thing. I just need to keep hanging in there even if it’s getting harder. Focus on my goals and the good things I have going on.
