As some of you know I started a new job about two weeks ago. For the first time in a few years I have a since of pride in my daily tasks. It feels good to be understood, appreciated and listened to. I usually have a lot of ideas and get a head of myself, I'm working on slowing down, but not a single one of my ideas is shot down...immediately:) I am now in a position where I work "WITH" my employer not "FOR".
So where am I going with this?
Depression has been something I have dealt with my whole life. I didn't realize it until I was in my 30's but that's what I had alcoholic for. I still go to therapy at least twice a week and we have worked through a ton of issues but I was still depressed and it took us month's to figure out why, my old job.
Now, like most people when you have a family to feed you can't just quit and find something better. Plus, at-least for me, I am very career driven, and when I feel useless at work it does not help my personal life. So my therapist and I developed a plan to find things that make me happy, can provide income for my family, and be done part time. It took a long time and attempts and failures at many things but that is what brought on the birth of Soft & Rugged. Trust me, I failed a lot before I found something that could satisfy the void I felt.
So if you are stuck in a job you don't like, not employed, under employed you don't have to stay like that forever. Learn some new skills, look for things that make you happy. There are TON's of ways to make extra money on the internet these days and just maybe you can turn that into a career.
