Are you currently in a job you hate? Are you for some reason not able to quit? Then getting through each day might be a battle and you are most probably miserable, uninspired and frustrated most of the time. The work is maybe not interesting; or you deal with a horrible boss or co-worker, but you are stuck!
How do we stay sane?
Please note the following strategies that will help you survive a job you hate:
No matter what your situation, you are in your current job for a very definite reason. Maybe you need the income for your family or an illness or to cover debt. This means that your work is indeed in some way contributing to the wellbeing of your family. Your commitment to your family and your financial goals in order to take care of someone is your deeper purpose for being there. Reflect on that often.
Expressing your unique gifts like creativity, honesty, kindness, or gratitude allows you to help yourself and others, not matter the circumstances of your job. This will fill your life with meaning and satisfaction and inspire others around you.
Reflect on a past situation that was really difficult, but that you have overcome. You can look and see how it eventually turned into something good. Now imagine a future where you will no longer be in a job you despise, but one that provides both meaning and happiness. You will get there. By reflecting on the past and connecting it to the future, can make your current circumstances more bearable.
