My intuition tells me that the chief origin of this symptom might be work stress; taking too much on. Any comments or insights would be valuable. Thanks.”
You are a very passionate being, a beautiful being full of light and love and joy. This work where you are was a good thing, but it does not mean you must always stay with one thing. You have grown and stretched beyond and even now have a great capacity to do many things. A mind such as yours could not ever be limited to one thing. The expectations of this work place are not uncommon and it is not that you cannot do this, but your heart needs to lift beyond it now, dearest.
You are young in your physical years and you are ancient in your spirit. These two things may collide from time to time, so be patient with yourself. You are not being ungrateful by not wanting this work. Look elsewhere and look beyond this and see what is possible for you. There are so many things, so many possibilities. And doing something over and over in the same way for you is like a prison. So, you have the key. But of course you are not going to as you have placed yourself in a position of needing monies at certain time. It does not mean that you cannot look beyond to yourself my dear, loving and kind. Realize that there are many dear ones that love you and support you. They also have opinions but you must trust in your own choice for that that you need to do. Bless you my child.
Will my career ever go anywhere? I am working with my hubby to go back to our old passion and hope to earn some extra income this way. I feel like I’m spinning my wheels in my day job, at the top of my pay grid with no hope in sight for a higher paying job. I am afraid to jump ship or even to go on a secondment for fear that when I come back my job will disappear (as has happened in the past to my former colleagues). I am stressed out with the hierarchical environment I work in now and have no confidence in my ‘top’ boss. I don’t have the $$ or time to go back to school to earn the golden degree (any degree) that seems to open doors with my employer, even if it doesn’t relate to the job in question. I try to stay positive and be grateful for what I have. But I fear that if something ever happens to my husband, I am a paycheque away from being homeless. I’d like to believe that all the hard work and high work ethic I try to put out will come back to me in the form of a raise or job offer someday, but I haven’t seen any evidence to give me any rationale for this type of hope. I am getting tired of manipulative co-workers who never want to do anything to help in return, and wind up getting all the recognition/thanks (simply for being the boss’ golden child and not for doing any work on a project.) Don’t get me wrong; I do enjoy helping people out, but it would be nice to experience some balance in my work life.
The weekend comes and all I can do is catch up on my sleep to recover from the mental stresses of the work week. I feel burned out. I am very lucky to have a job, but I could really use some advice. The power of positive thinking seems to work better for some more than others. Should I drop some of the commitments I have taken on in my job to reduce my stress load, and focus on my real life’s passion instead? Thanks for any help you could provide.
