So You HATE Your Job


So you hate your job, huh?

You thought it might be a good idea to share that fact (in great detail) with all your friends on Facebook? Really?

Beyond the fact that we should never bite the hand that feeds us, have you considered how that might look to your friends?

With such a huge percentage of people out of work right now, do you realize that likely includes some of your friends who would give anything to have the security of a job right now? Many folks are just one paycheck away from economic disasters, and you are busy complaining.

If nothing else, if you are trying to get an online business off the ground, have you thought about what your potential customers and clients might think about you being willing to trash the company that currently signs your paychecks?

Yes, I am totally blessed to work for an incredible company these days so maybe I just don’t get it, but I have had some pretty crappy jobs in my life. The money still kept a roof over my head and food on the table.

Yeah, but what if you really do HATE your job?

Either shut up or do something about it.

  • Realize how very lucky you are to have a job when so many don’t.
  • Sometimes just changing your attitude will make your job more enjoyable.
  • In your off time, find something that you absolutely love doing, and then find a way to make money doing it. It may take time to get it off the ground, but you will know that you are headed the right direction.

As always, just my 2 cents and I may even owe ya change. 🙂

  1. You’re right, Cricket; complaining about your job (or your spouse, in-laws, family, etc.) online isn’t really a good idea, since much of what goes online ends being up there for quite awhile! If you really need to vent, much better to do it on the phone to your best friend!

    I’ve come to believe that, with very few exceptions, EVERYONE can change their life if they truly want to, whether it’s a different job, a better place to live, a healthier life style, etc.

    So if you hate your job, life, etc., go ahead and complain (to a friend, or in a journal, but NOT online), then suck it up and figure out how to MAKE THINGS BETTER!

      I love your response!
      We have so much more control over our lives that we realize. 🙂

  2. If you do hate your job you just need some perspective. Think about what you can do after work, think about what your going to do this weekend, imagine yourself sitting on a beach on your holiday basically give yourself something to look forward to. A little perspective can change a lot.

  3. Nope I do not, actually I love my job. It;s pretty much what i’ve been wanting for a long time 🙂

    Love my current job and what I’m doing right now, its been 5 years now since I made my choice of what to do and finally I can say I made it.

    It’s a long way down the road in life and you just need to shut up in some ocasions and do what you need to do.

    You are so right! No one should complain about life issues on Facebook, especially if it has to do with employment. Not only can it backfire on you with your management becoming aware of it, but it will also anger your friends if they do not have a job. In this economy be appreciative that you even have a job.
