Dear Keke and Kat: I Hate My Job
If you've never worked at a job that you just can't stand, you're one of the lucky ones. And maybe in the minority when it comes to the workforce.
Dear Keke and Kat,
My job is the worst. I hate it. I hate my hours, my boss, my coworkers, the work I do, the building, all of it. I dread waking up in the morning knowing I have to go in. I find myself counting the minutes until I can leave. I live for the weekends. I don't like living this way. It's mentally tasking.
I know you'll ask why I don't leave. I work in a very specialized field and there aren't many options when it comes to what I have a degree in. There are no openings at the few other options I have within my field. I can't just quit and work somewhere else because I have major debt from school loans to go into this field. I didn't know I would dislike it so much. I can't bring myself to leave knowing that I'd have to go back to school and put myself into more debt and all that money and degree would go to waste.
There's got to be something I can do but I just can't find it. I feel like I've exhausted all options.
I think that happiness is way more important than both time and money. If you aren't happy and enjoying life, then what is all of this for, anyway? What's your advice?
