Remember the time you wanted to grow up and do a job and earn money? God help us!
If you have a job you love, well it’s a win-win. You love Mondays. You love your working place and working buddies and well, you are having a ‘perfect life’
But then, what about people like us, the ones who fucking hate their jobs? The ones who would rather go to hell and rot in there than going back to work on Monday? Yes, we do exist!
Let me put it in this way. It’s great to have a job. Trust me. Because you are financially secured. At the end of the month, you get your salary and it feels good, not great, just good. You might not be euphoric when you receive your salary because you get paid from doing a job you hate most.
I mean, I often wonder, is this the LIFE? So it’s just going to job, coming back home, eat, sleep, wake up, going back to the job, coming back home until we die? So is it a circle that cannot be broken?
What the hell dude! You call this a life!
Have you ever read John Green’s ‘ Looking for Alaska’? If so, you might have noticed Francois Rabelais’ quote ‘I go to seek a Great Perhaps’. It means life is full of ‘maybes’. It means that our life has endless opportunities to grab and yet here we are, stuck in our comfort zones and cursing one of the most important things in our life which should make us happy.
Isn’t it simply pathetic to be stuck in a job which you don’t wanna do? So for me, every other job seems like God’s given. I mean, if I had guts to leave my job, I’d do it within a blink of an eye. But, can I? No. Can you? I guess not.
Do you know what’s irritating more than going to this damn job? It’s people saying that I’ve got this wonderful job and I should be happy and there are people out there without jobs and I should be grateful and blah blah.. When I listened to their attempts of making me feel that I’ve got the best job in the world, it started to disgust me more. It’s just sad to be around with people who cannot understand you, at all. So the whole world simply sucks.
As I told you, there are two types of people, the ones who’d die for their jobs and the ones who’d rather die than going to the job. My sister, for example, falls into the first category. Sometimes I hear her say that she’d rather work on weekends than staying at home. I mean, SERIOUSLY???
So what happened to us? Why am I like this? Why are you like this? Don’t you feel that there’s something seriously wrong with us because I do. All.The.Time. It feels like whatever we do, we gonna end up unhappy. Like, we don’t deserve long-lasting happiness.
Then, that’s exactly why we have to change. I mean if we are unhappy, we can change it. Can’t we? I go on looking for another job which doesn’t make me rich, but happy. I don’t regret hating my current job because I know, if I started to like it, I’d settle there. No. I don’t want it. So I look for a new job and until I find it, I’m going to stay in my current job because, at the end of the month, it’s money after all.
What I’m trying to say is that this life, that breath you just took, darling it’s yours and it belongs only to you. So why the hell are we stuck with a job we hate? Every moment we are spending our lives and if we are not happy about it what’s the point of living at all? I’m saying is that if you are not happy, change it. And yes! It’s not easy as it sounds. You have responsibilities, you have your own insecurities. But is it worth, to sacrifice the happiness of your life for a job you’d quit if you had a chance?
So think about it! Every moment we pass belongs to us and the choice of being happy belongs to us. If you are unhappy about your job, take the responsibility and find something else because as John Green said “It is so hard to leave until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world”s
