You Matter. Never Forget That.

I’m expecting a baby in seven months. I haven’t been feeling well and my employers haven’t been exactly accommodating. They are barely civil about it. Even before I found out I was pregnant I had come to the realization that the job I have now is not what I thought it would be in terms of exposure and career progressions and opportunities. I also noticed how other employees have been treated by my employer, there is no residual value, and you are only as valuable as the work that they need to get done in the next month. Also… I…

Maybe You Don’t Have To Push Yourself Forward. Maybe You Just Have To Stop Holding Yourself Back. ~Doe Zantamata

I’ve been there too long, going nowhere; in fact I’m going backwards. Work has affected my mood. ~Worker Living in South Africa Sometimes not only are we not going forward but we are going backwards. We are losing ground. If you are going backwards, it’s time to stop and regroup.  What do you need to do today to stop this slide backwards?

Doors Of Opportunity Will Present Themselves…Even Without A Degree.

I’m depressed; there is no growth prospect. I’m not enjoying what I am doing and I’m working with stupid people.  I feel like I am getting no skills here and not improving myself.  This job is actually stagnating me and making me unemployable.  No matter how hard I work I will never be promoted because of my lack of education.

Yes, “Just Quit” Is A Risk…BUT…It Can Lead To The Good Life

I studied very hard thinking that I would live a good life after I graduated, but I think I’m the most unhappy person. I hate this place. I don’t care about my job anymore. I feel like this is punishment for something terrible that I did. I am a lot happier when I’m at home, with my family, friends, and my boyfriend. I’m happy even when I’m in class and doing everything else outside of my job. My job is tiring and makes me feel sick and the worst thing is the night shift. I feel like crying like a baby…
