Many people hate changes but the unknown frightens, and many people cling to something familiar, even if it no longer suits them. Sometimes people get stuck in some profession or at some job that makes them unhappy, but they hold on to it because when you have already accumulated some experience, power, you get a decent salary, it is difficult to change everything fundamentally.
But at the same time, people often choose the wrong career by accident. They start to work somewhere and gradually master some skills, thanks to which they are promoted and begin to earn good money. Sometimes they even open their business in this area. They focus on growth, performance, or just making money that allows them to maintain a certain standard of living, but they do not understand how toxic their life has become.
You might not notice the signs of this misfortune. You may not even realize how unhappy you are. So, try to study the symptoms below. Do you have them? It will help to understand whether the time has come for drastic changes, or for the time being, we can limit ourselves to solving minor problems.
- You go to bed and wake up in horror before the upcoming working day.
Most people have stress at work, and many people think about work and at home. But if this stress goes to bed with you every night, if you have insomnia, then perhaps it is time to reconsider your professional role. If the middle of a Sunday is the hardest moment of the week, because you all think about Monday and want the Saturday never to end, then you have problems. Make an effort so your brain can rest. Find what to dive in to relieve stress. If you cannot overcome yourself, it is probably time for a change.
- You only work for money.
Money changes a lot, and their lack is stress itself. But salary alone rarely brings satisfaction. Most people want to bring some benefit at work, work together with their companions who understand you, and grow over themselves. If you do not get real satisfaction from your activities, maybe you need to change your way. Try to limit your consumption to relieve the stress associated with money. If you still cannot find a reason for joy in your current job, think about what you like and plan how you can start earning money in these areas.
- Emails that you read sound sarcastically or condescendingly to you.
If every time you get mail, you frown, something is wrong. Have you lost your taste for communication within the company? Do not you think that people are honest and pleasant? Email is a great barometer: letters do not convey emotions or intonation and therefore often reflect your own positive or negative feelings when reading. You can read a letter from a kind and sincere person, but to think that he is writing nasty things to you, just because in your present state you would answer that way. Try reading all the letters from a positive point of view and see if your communication improves. If you are still continually feeling hurt when reading, look for another place where you can work with people you like.
- You have nothing good or pleasant to say.
We are so immersed in the current routine that we do not realize in what negative tone we communicate with our colleagues. And since most people do not want to offend us, they keep silent about it, especially if this poison comes from the boss. Watch for yourself – if you show negative at meetings, talking on the phone, at the vending machine. Write in a notebook every time you expressed a negative thought. If the paper ends quickly, you need to change something in your life. If you realize that you are speaking with irritation, bitterness, or, conversely, too obediently, you want to be more positive, but you cannot do it at all, then it is time to change your job or profession.
- You do not see the light at the end of the tunnel.
What do you see when you think about your professional future? Do you feel something exciting and pleasant, or are you looking forward to just a big bonus, dismissal or retirement? Perhaps everything that you see is a long, straightforward and monotonous path without any changes. If you are afraid that the rules will remain the same, the relationship is just as unpleasant, and if everyone around (but not you) is happy with everything, something nasty is waiting for you. Either deal with the internal situation at work or hurry to leave it as soon as possible and move to a more exciting future.
