Is your job starting to feel like a dysfunctional and semi-destructive relationship?
You think it is ok for now but then you realize how bad it really is but then something good happens and you’re back to thinking, “Well, it’s not that bad.” You’re beginning to wonder if you have multiple personality disorder.
You realize it’s just that you’re not sure what you really want in the first place, so a little something-something seems better than nothing.
You’ve put on some ‘relationship’ weight and your friends don’t want to hang out with you much anymore because all you talk about is your job and how much you don’t like it but you don’t know what else to do. Then you spiral into the paralysis of analysis and your friends look at you with that look of, yea, we’ve heard this story a million times already, leave the job already.
The more you think about it, the more you realize this job is more like a marriage than a dating relationship.
You know you should ‘break up’ with your job but at the same time, it feels safe and familiar. You’ve invested so much time and energy that it’s hard to let go when you don’t know where you want to go from here.
You also have created strong relationships with the people you work with and it makes you sad to leave them behind.
And what about the hassle of dividing the assets – thinking about it gives you a headache.
The question is how long do you want to stay in the land of confusion? How long have you already spent there? How much time and energy are you wasting living in uncertainty and discontent?
Take this quiz to see if you have any of the signs that it might be time to break up with your job:
- I have dreamed up illnesses that I would rather have than go to work.
- I sometimes hope I get in a fender bender on the way to work.
- I feel like I have to walk on eggshells if I arrive after a certain time (7:00, 7:30, 8:00am) or if I have to leave a minute or two before 5:00 or 6:00pm or 7:00pm, which makes me feel like I’m back in middle school, fearing detention.
- There’s an unspoken contest going on about who works the most hours and I don’t even want that trophy.
- I’ve starting to wonder if I have a split personality disorder as I often vacillate between saying, “It’s not that bad,” to “I can’t do this for even one more day.”
- The Sunday night blues begin on Sunday morning, and often include the consumption of alcoholic beverages to dull the pain of having to return to work the next day.
- Living for the weekend is starting to lose its luster, as I’m so exhausted and burnt out by then that I don’t have energy to do much of anything.
- I often tell myself and my friends, “I’m too young to feel this old.”
- My health and fitness are on a steady decline or are no longer even a part of my vocabulary.
- I often ask myself, “Isn’t there more to life than this?” and I hear Bjork singing in the background.
