Life Update: A Stressful Month

I miss writing here. It’s crazy how life can sometimes force you to give up the things you love.

The past month was quite a stressful one for me. I quit my job and was struggling to end it on good terms. My manager isn’t the easiest to please, and they weren’t very happy when I resigned.

You know the moment when you, for some reason, start thinking about what you’re doing with your life? I went through that so many times last month, and realized how much I disliked my job.

I wasn’t passionate about it.

I know a lot of people hate their jobs, but it was consuming me. I couldn’t think about anything but how much I disliked it. What I can be doing instead. Where I can be. The people I could meet.

When you lack passion for what you do, full-time, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily, you start to develop anxiety and stress. It consumes who you are as a person.

And so, I ended it. Moving onto a more exciting experience. Hopefully, I will enjoy work once I start. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I can’t seem to find a job that I actually enjoy doing.

If it were up to me, I would work on making videos and writing blog posts on the daily. But unfortunately, one needs to pay bills. It’s not realistic. At least for now.

Okay, this rant is over.

Just thought I’d share some of the mess that’s in my head right now. Maybe people will relate to what I’m going through. If you are going through something similar, don’t give up. Follow your dreams, and don’t let reality stop you.

  1. Your not alone honestly, I’m still in uni in my second year and I’m studying what i think I’m passionate for, but somedays thats not the case, when your in 2 hour lectures, you start to question your whole existence (lol).


  2. I can totally relate and completely feel the words. I passed by the same experience for 5 month a couple of years ago when I was studying in a major that I hated and kept asking myself everyday; why am I doing this to myself? How many opportunities am missing?
    Finally, I took a leap of faith and switched to another major. This decision had it’s financial and time cost but I was totally satisfied by the decision.
