But for the time being I will just keep my mouth shut at work and collect a paycheck. Does anyone else see anything wrong with this? Why is no one else furious at the concept of living in a world where you are forced to do a job that you hate, just to pay off some bills that you are forced to pay? I've never held a job over about a year and a half, and every time it's because I just get sick of the job. The following time spent unemployed, I manage to fill my head with ideas of the success and happiness which has, thus far, eluded me, until I build myself up enough so that my next job can slowly tear me down, back into this hole of depression.
That means each time you see me, that's on the worst day of my life. How do we change this? Or is this just the future mankind has laid out for itself. Passed between employers like used records, on and off various anti-depressants that keep us just sane enough that we don't go postal, on our office or ourselves, and hoping that our children will SOMEHOW find a way to do it better than we did, but secretly knowing that they're doomed to the same fate as us, because they weren't born into old money.
Would you believe that I have a job? And that I work in "Workforce and Career Development "? It's my job to help people find jobs! What a world, huh?

Nick in Somerville, Massachusetts said: Thanks, Beth. I am looking at the NYC area. It is stupid expensive, though. To be honest, I'd move anywhere that had a good job waiting for me. I was looking through New Mexico listings, earlier. I just want good, solid work that isn't going to lay me off a year later, something I can build around. Jennifer Hinds in Phoenix, Arizona. Look at society objectively: what is it. Society is a natural phenomenon which has arisen out of the cauldron of Earth's environments. It serves to sustain people in the flesh at the cost of tangible and intangible things we must sacrifice.
This is what it is. Society demands sacrifice.
Society is a giant dragon made of cells of human lives. Please the dragon, earn rewards; anger the dragon, incur wrath. Avoid the dragon and, hey, you are on your own. Your choice. I come to the dragon when I need some help, scratch his belly then take my earned wealth and invest it in my own life, in my own society, the world of my own creation. We are not an island. We cannot survive alone.
We need others. Ask not why others don't pay you to do what you love but rather ask 'what can you do for them? Beth in Plano in Plano, Texas. Completely Broke and Broken in Cleveland, Ohio. I realised one particular aspect in this thought which is that we never get satisfied with what we have and always wants more and more. We might think if we get lot of money and lot of free time we will be awesomely satisfied but even then we might not! Karl in Lakeland, Florida. I'm currently in the same boat as a lot of you guys. I graduated with a general social science degree last December I didn't know what I wanted to major in, but I wanted to earn a degree, so I chose something general that would hopefully keep my options open.
Unfortunately, I've still yet to find a job.

I have a variety of things I'm interested in, and could see myself doing for a living, but for some reason or another nothing has worked out yet. I've come across a few job openings that sound pretty appealing, but I always seem to hit a roadblock or find a negative aspect to them e. I have the option of settling for a job as a telemarketer or salesperson, which could provide me with a decent income, but would undoubtedly be boring. I could also do something that makes me happy, like volunteer or missionary work, but then I would make little to no income.

Ideally, I would like to have a job in the middle of the road that is relatively enjoyable and is not too low-paying. Unfortunately, I'm beginning to lose hope. Part of me is starting to wonder if my aspirations are just too unrealistic or highly improbable. I don't know if I'm being pathetic and whiney, or if I legitimately have an argument here. I don't know what the purpose of this rant is or what point I'm trying to make.
I suppose I'd like to think that this message will allow other people in similar situations to relate and know that they aren't alone in their current predicaments. Jay in Chicago, Illinois. I get it.
I didn't know what I wanted to do in life after college so I went to law school. Not because I am passionate about law, but because I was good at school and it would supposedly "open a lot of doors. And while I keep fighting to acknowledge it, being a lawyer sucks. At least it isn't for me. Not so far at least. My advice to anyone would be DO NOT go to grad school unless you are sure it will take you where you want.
Or you are on scholarship. I do not feel accomplished. And I still have not found whatever passion I need to find. I keep my hopes up that something will work out and I will find the job I really like, but I feel like sitting and waiting isn't going to get me there.follow url
11 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started My First Blog
I just don't know what steps to take, or if I missed the boat completely. Paul in Mesquite, Texas. Jay in Chicago, Illinois said: I get it. Read the book "48 days to the work you love" or listen to the audiobook or podcasts.
It has been very helpful for me thus far. I just started listening to them myself and it has revealed some very backward perspectives that I held about work. I hope it helps you as well. Paul in Mesquite, Texas said: Read the book "48 days to the work you love" or listen to the audiobook or podcasts. What if there are NO jobs in what he loves? That seems to be the problem with most professions right now. No jobs. The problem isn't finding what one is able to do--it's lack of jobs. Thunderhammer in Richmond, Virginia. You know, I have been reading this post and I have the same opinion as many of you.
Crappy minimum-wage jobs just don't cut it for those of us supporting a family.
But I've always wanted to do something with my life, something I could enjoy, at least on a moderate level.
