Scared of Hoping



I've been complaining about the job non-stop. So why haven't I quit yet? Because I'm scared. I'm scared that if I leave this job I won't have another break like this again. I'm scared that my husband won't be able to find a job. I'm scared that I'll screw up my daughter's future. But I don't want to keep the job just because I'm scared. Wait a minute, I don't think I will last that long for that reason either. Idk, I'm just as clueless as ever. Life is so hard. :D

I am sorry to hear you are in such a dilemma over whether to stay with your job.

It seems to be very stressful for you. Is it possible for you to reduce your hours? I know for myself I could not work full time. I work mornings and it means I have some independance as well as not tiring myself too much. My youngest child is 14, so I suppose it is easier for me - I think your child is quite young?

Has this stress been affecting your mood and your ocd?

You need to look after you.

Take care

Thanks, goose and finding. My head is saying I should stick w/ this job....I don't know how long I'm going to last. I know I should take it one day at a time, but we still have to plan, you know...
