October 17, 2011


For the last several months, I have been extremely miserable while trudging down my path of life. My home life has been fine. My job life is what has been getting me down. The feeling I get when even thinking about going to my job is a feeling of dread. Today my husband made me realize that I am way too miserable to continue down the path I am on, because I am clearly on the wrong path. 

I quit another job today. Now, I am not saying that everyone should go out and quit his or her job just because you have a bad day. However, nearly every day I went to work would result in me getting criticized and yelled at for what I thought was me performing a good job. One thing that people must understand is that I have another part time job to fall back on, and that is my part-time substituting job. As soon as I quit the part-time job at the restaurant, I received two subbing jobs for this week. I am not planning on sitting at home doing nothing, because my family has lots of bills to pay. Not only did I line up two subbing jobs, but I was also online applying for a new part-time job to take the place of the one I just quit. 

The last two years has taught me a very valuable lesson, and that lesson is life is too short to be miserable, and it is too short to surround yourself with rude people. Most of the people I worked with at the restaurant were downright rude and nasty. There are a few girls who I will miss, but for most part, I walk away from that job and I leave all the misery behind. I have to have faith that I will find a job that is like one I had a few years ago where the coworkers were more like family members than acquaintances. If you are miserable doing what you are doing, you are probably taking the wrong path.
