Is your job killing the essence of who you really are?

​If you find yourself despising your job, you're not alone, and it's crucial to realise that it can have a significant impact on your overall well-being to the extent that it is damaging relationships all around you.

Approximately 20% to 40% of individuals report disliking their jobs, but you have the power to change your situation.

Staying in a job you hate can take a toll on your health, leading to weight gain, increased risk of illness, and mental health struggles. Moreover, it can disrupt your personal life, affecting your relationships and even your sex life.

Beyond the health and personal implications, a job you detest can stifle your motivation, passion, and self-worth. It may prevent you from realising your true potential and pursuing what you genuinely want to do in life. I was chatting just yesterday to a property industry peer. He told me that he saw a video of himself from the period he was in his old job, and he was unrecognisable. I get it. Its like your soul has been sucked out of you.

I know. I know because it happened to me.

At first it just felt like a dark cloud of frustration, anger and resentment periodically, then I started to feel paranoid. I worked so hard, long hours and burnout was also creeping in. But I was loyal and even though the job was causing me financial struggles, I felt I should stay. Over time, I changed. I was grumpy at home, acting out of character, friends and family could see it - I wouldn't hear of it. This lasted almost a year. An industry mentor said I was behaving like an abused wife - continually being slapped and beaten and going back for more. Thankfully - things came to a head and I left. Even then, it had knocked the stuffing out of me - it took a while to heal.

Are you feeling the same?

Are you finding you are arguing more in your personal life over work?

Its time to stop. Call it a day.

Remember the dreams you once had?

Rekindling your passion for work is possible once you decide to make a change. Your life is too valuable to spend at a job that drains your happiness and potential. Take a step back and consider the profound impact your job dissatisfaction has on your entire life.

You deserve better, and so do your loved ones.

Make the commitment to find a job that brings fulfilment, purpose, and joy into your daily routine.You're worth it, and the people who care about you, your family and your children, they all deserve the best version of you. More importantly - you deserve to be happy.
