So you hate your job? Who doesn’t? Well, of course, some people do enjoy their jobs, but a lot of people don’t. Many people will say dramatic things like “I hate my job so much it makes me sick!” When people say that, are they just being overly dramatic, or does their job stress them out so much that it genuinely makes them sick?
These days, a lot of people do take time off work due to stress. You can actually get sick from too much stress, so it makes sense that your job can make you sick.
“I hate my job so bad that it depresses me!”
Now this is when things get really serious. Depression is so common these days, it almost seems like it would be abnormal to feel happy, especially at work.
It is a difficult subject, though. It’s hard to fully understand what the root cause is. Are you someone who tends to suffer from depression, but your job just tips you over the edge? Or is your job so bad that anyone would feel depressed if they had to do it?
I for one know that there are many jobs that I would hate to do, and having to turn up 5 days a week to do them would definitely make me feel depressed. So if you feel like this, maybe you are just in the wrong job.
When You Hate Your Boss…
One of the most common reasons people hate their jobs is because they find their boss so difficult to work with. Sometimes bosses are just not nice people, but sometimes they are just not suited to the role.
There are two reasons why a person might not be suited to be in the role of a boss. One reason is that they have risen to that position simply because they really know their industry. However, this doesn’t mean they are good at managing a team. So in a situation like that you might end up with someone who always knows best but doesn’t know how to encourage you or get the best out of you.
The other scenario could be if your boss is in his position because he is good at managing people, but he doesn’t know anything about the industry. So you could easily find yourself in a situation where you know better than he does and that puts you in a difficult position.
Annoying Work Colleagues?
The people we work with can make or break our job. This isn’t just true for the boss we work for but is also true for the people with we work alongside. Our equals. Or even people beneath us in the company structure.
We’ve all been in a job where someone we work with is annoying or difficult. I once worked with a lazy guy who hated getting up from his desk so insisted that I always pass him things. He was also extremely sarcastic and was totally incapable of having a normal conversation. Everything out of his mouth was framed as a joke or sarcastic put-down. It was like a petty competition between the two of us.
But I have also worked with someone who didn’t do his share of the work and would instead spend half the day stood around talking. When I confronted him about it, he just tried to make a joke about it. So I complained to someone above us, and he hated that and we had a huge fight. I didn’t know what else to do.
Are You Bored with Your Job?
But even if the people you work with are absolutely fine, it’s no good if you just find your job boring. How long can you spend just stacking shelves in Walmart before you lose your mind?
If you work in a factory production line, you might find yourself daydreaming of something that makes far better use of your skills and abilities. If you feel like this, the chances are you are capable of achieving far more.
