Are you stressed?

Stress is such a common thing that all of us can feel at some point in our lives. To be honest, your job can be the leading cause of it. You feel stressed because of deadlines that need to be met. You feel sad and pressured for getting work done, you feel you have no choice because bills keep coming in and you have a family support. Stress can take over your life, and if your job is the main cause of it then now is the time to start deciding whether this is something you can continue with. Life is too short, and while you may feel trapped, you can start to make some changes to ensure that you can make some positive moves when it comes to your career. Perhaps working on ideas in your spare time or searching out a job with better working conditions or prospects.

Do you want to feel more fulfilled?

Maybe you just don’t feel any satisfaction from your job. A lot of people want to come home after a hard days work and feel like they have done something worthwhile with their time. This might be working in a hospital, maybe delivering babies or even in the intensive care side of things. You can make the change by studying one of the neonatal nurse practitioner programs or other nursing programs on offer online. Perhaps you want a job where you feel like you help people, or care for the elderly, or even to help improve people’s lifestyles like personal training or nutrition. There are so many career directions you can take that you are bound to find something that can help you to feel more fulfilled.

What should you do?

Now you need to start thinking about what you want to do. You don’t want to continue to feel frustrated. You don’t want to feel stressed or upset. Taking time out to think about your situation, think about what you want out of life and working out what you can afford to do. This can help you to make more informed decisions.

Having the courage and confidence to make a change

Finally, you need to have the confidence and courage to make the changes, and this can often be the most difficult thing to overcome. However, if you know what you want then you can start to make the decisions to actually change your life for the better.

I hope this has given you something to think about when it comes to your career and the frustrations you can all feel.

  1. Ever since I gave up being employed and created my own job, I have been much happier and fulfilled. I do work much longer hours being self-employed but as I love my work, it doesn’t feel like work. My main frustration lately has been lack of time because my parents have needed me but I deal with that by looking ahead to a time when both my parents have gone and I will know I did right by them. No regrets. My dad passed a few weeks ago and I am so glad I gave him all the time he needed during the preceding few years. It was frustrating at times but the moment he took his last breath, I knew why the voice in my head always urged me to be there. There was absolutely nothing that could have mattered as much as being there for him and my mum. I still get frustrated by the lack of time to do as much as I would like while taking care of just my mum now, but I remind myself of how quickly life is over and I use the time I have to do whatever I can. And if I wasn’t self-employed – this would all be so much harder.
