If your job is becoming too hectic, stressful, and unbearable, then read what you can do about it.
I see a lot of people who really hate their jobs and not in a way that they bad-mouth their manager, colleague, or the system. But, they are actually depressed because the job is killing them inside.
This can happen for various reasons such as an unhealthy environment, low tolerance level, or lack of support. If this is your situation, take a step back, breathe, and read further to know how you can get out of this.
Leave the job
The first option that I would suggest anyone is to leave. If you are not able to cope up with the environment, boss, or work itself, then leave. We always tend to burden ourselves with questions like what will the next employer ask about why I left the job early? How will I get the same package in the same city? And other similar questions. However, there is always a solution, and you can always be truthful with the future employer, you can always relocate, and you can always find a new job.
Build your support system
If for some reasons, you can’t leave immediately, then build a support system. There are times when you can’t leave the job instantly because you have to pay bills and it is hard to find a job that early. So, at such times, connect with people who look sane, and people who have a happy circle and encourage each other. This will reduce half your burden because you will have friends with you at work too.
Don’t try to rationalize your decision
Rationalizing our decision is twofold. First, we ignore our stress-filled days and the bad habits we acquire in the process such as drinking, smoking, etc. Second, we try to justify staying in the same job just because we are afraid of the change. Drop these things and try to embrace the change. Look for a new, better job, and move on.
Analyze your departure
Analyzing your departure is the most essential thing if you want to land a good job. If you keep repeating the same mistakes, you’ll keep ending up in offices that increase your stress. First, analyze if you are in the right career. Second, evaluate what type of work environment you totally cannot handle. Third, see what type of bosses you can’t work with. And lastly, create a collective list and then search for a new job. With this analysis, you will be able to find a job you can work at happily.
Some people may still suggest you otherwise and ask you to stay. But, remember, we work for our happiness and all this money is for nothing if your job is killing you inside.
