There are plenty of reasons that people wind up despising their jobs. It can range from what they are doing to who they are doing it with, but what they all have in common is that they hate their jobs, and they probably don’t want to do it anymore. The only problem is that people need jobs to live in this world, and it can be insanely difficult to find new jobs anywhere at any time, especially in the current economy. That makes people feel stuck, and that in turn makes them unhappy and makes them feel like they are trapped in something they hate to do and hate to deal with. If you are one of the people who feel like they can’t stand their job anymore, here are some strategies to make things easier to bear until you can find a new job to work.
The Work Itself
If you hate your job because of what you are doing, you are in a very tough situation. Some of the worst job hate comes from doing a job that you are indifferent to or even dislike, because all of that apathy eventually evolves into hate for the things you do day in and day out repetitively forever, until you can’t stand anything about your job. You need to be able to let things go and make sure that you realize that it isn’t the people around you who are making you angry. If you lash out at people who are trying to be nice to you, you are just going to end up even worse off than you were before. Try to separate yourself from your work and think of things that make you happy while you do it, and that will help you hold out until you find a better job. Don’t be afraid to let out some anger at the gym either, that will help you too.
If it is your boss who is giving you trouble then you have a major annoyance on your hands. Bosses are held in a strange limbo that stops somewhere between peer and teacher, and often becomes someone that many have the uncontrollable urge to slap as hard as they can across the face. If you have a bad boss just keep your head down, your work good, and your flirting skills sub-par. Also start searching for a job as soon as humanly possible, because life will get easier with a new job and a new boss. Therapy in the meantime includes throwing darts at a picture of the boss, as long as you mean no real harm to him, everything will be fine.
If it’s the people who you work with that are the problem, then the simple solution is to avoid them and to not come into contact with them If they actively harass you, it is in your rights to be as cold and ruse as you like, and you are also perfectly within your allotted rights to report them to your boss or human resources. If the all already hate you, there is no point trying to gain their affections, and iron fist ruling is the only way to make everyone wary and leave you alone. Hopefully that works, and if not it is time to switch to a different area.
Rude customers, reviewers and people are going to be everywhere you go. Do not let stupid people ruin your working experience, or the will ruin every single one you have until you are an old person. Just serve them and then complain about them with your coworkers. It’s a nice release that also bands coworkers together, so it isn’t all bad either. Make sure that people know that you care about them and you like talking to them, it might help to cool the air.
Distance and Hours
If you hate your job because of the when and where, there is not much you can do about that. You just need to grin and bear it or make as much of a change as you think is reasonably. When you finally do it, when you leave your job, come back to either talk to them calmly or serve a supine, defending on how the conversation goes. You will be able to get what you want either way, and you survived through it.
