Do you hate your job? At my last job, I was becoming physically ill at the thought of having to go to work the next day. That’s when I knew–I had to get out. If you are noticing any of these things in relation to your own life and your own job, you may want to seriously think about either finding a new job, or starting your own online business, where you will be in control of your life instead of a boss.
It’s Making You Sick
As I’ve said, I was getting physically sick at the thought of going to work the next day. In my case, I was actually throwing up, but you may experience any of the following: headaches, an upset stomach, unexplained pains, extreme anxiety, or depression. These are all signs that your job is affecting your health, and you need to make a change.
You Avoid Your Workplace
You make sure to take every precious second of your vacation time, sick days, breaks, lunch hours, etc., just to minimize the amount of time you spend at work. Maybe you even stretch it a little, with a few extra minutes here and there. I’ve been there!
You set mini-milestones with yourself just to get through the day. Things like:
-“Just half an hour more and it’s break time.”
-“One more hour until lunch.”
-“If I work for 15 more minutes, I can take a bathroom break.”
If you find yourself making deals with yourself to get you through to the next bit of time where you don’t have to work, it may be a sign that you need to look for work elsewhere.
Mini-Mental Health Breaks
If your bathroom breaks have become mini-mental health breaks, you’re probably not too happy at your job. Any little bit of time in a place where you don’t have to deal with work becomes an oasis, when you’re not happy at your job. Again, I’ve been there!
Mental Health Days
If you find yourself calling in sick when you’re not, well, you’re like most people. But if you’re doing it as much as possible without getting fired and telling yourself it’s a “mental health day,” that’s probably a sign that you hate your job.
Take This Job and Shove It!
Ah, the anthem of unhappy workers everywhere. If this song has become your anthem and you daydream about playing it to your boss as you walk out the door, you might just hate your job!
Your Family Life is Suffering
When you’re unhappy at your job, you may become stressed out, irritable, and just generally miserable. You may find yourself taking it out on your family. Or, they might just get tired of hearing you complain about it all the time. In any case, if it’s affecting your family life, it’s a sign that you need to make a change.
You Live for the Weekend
Again, if any time away from work (evenings, weekends, etc.) becomes an oasis where you finally feel free and happy, in stark contrast to the way that you feel when you’re at work, that’s a sign that you hate your job. That’s not a good way to live, considering that we spend most of our lives at work.
