LOVING WHAT YOU DO BUT NOT THE PEOPLE

“We get along because we have to.”


THE WORKPLACE

Imagine working on a job that you love to come to everyday. But then you have to work around people that you don’t quit get along with. That means occupying a space with multiple people that you share space eight hours per day, five days a week. So even a job you love can be stressful when being around these types of people. And what do I mean by these types of people? I mean people who you cannot hold a conversation with without there being an issue. Someone that you are in close proximity with, but they are just not the least bit conversational. People who keep a conflict going in the space, and also people that try to sabotage everything you do at work. This usually comes a place of insecurity and threat of losing out to you.

MAKE THE BEST OF IT

Try to do the best thing possible which outreach at first. I myself am not a person who does not talk much on my jobs, but it is because it has something to do with me focusing on work being social. I just like to focus on work and then outside of work engage in a little more social. But the only problem is, people I work with don’t see that aspect of me. And getting to know me, you’ll see that. So you have to be patient with some people. But then there are others that you have to just act like they don’t exist. It’s hard, especially if you have to work on a team with them.

LAST DITCH EFFORT

I honestly think that even when you like your job, sometimes people can be so toxic that you have to jump ship. You have to look at your surroundings and realize that things are not getting better and it’s better to remove yourself fully. Now, most people figure things out, but the few that can’t stay around get the hell out of there. So realize where you stand on the spectrum make a decision according.

FALLING OFF: HOW TO RECOVER FROM A JOB SETBACK

“Anyone hiring?”


i need a job

Whenever you have a setback in life, it can difficult to recover. But nothing is more difficult to recover from, besides an illness, than losing your job. Because you can’t just walk into an establishment like decades ago and find one. You have to really do some serious searching, especially today with such a high percentage of jobs being referrals. You have to reach out to every contact you have ever had in life to see if they can help you. And that is because the average person who loses their job will be homeless in less than a month. Why, well it’s because the majority of people live paycheck to paycheck. So what do you do because I have never lost my job, but I have had real setbacks.

getting back to yourself

How do you get back into position so you can be back to where you should be. And that could take a lot of mental evaluation on your behalf. Because once you lose your job, there is a confidence hit that you take. Your internal self is not right, so you have a hard time getting back up. But at some point you have to get back up, otherwise you will get into a rut and never go anywhere. So find some way to gain that inner confidence and strength so you don’t too down on yourself where you cannot recover.

your side hustle

If you ever get back on your feet, it is important you try to have a little extra income outside your day job. This can be thrown into a savings account and never touched unless you need it. Now this is easier said than done, but we are not in the time of our parents and grandparents. Jobs are a lot more hard to come by.
