Do you find yourself waking up with that sinking feeling, dreading the thought of going to work? There is nothing worse is there?
Perhaps you chide yourself on staying with a job you hate. What justifications do you use?
· I need the money?
· I won’t get another job?
· There are no jobs out there?
· I guess it’s not too bad?
These are just some of the statements clients have said to me over the years.
She requested leave to attend a close friend’s funeral only to be told she was not entitled to the time off.
Every day Trisha went home crying. So stressed out about the way she was being treated at work that she cried!
Being treated unfairly is, sadly, not that uncommon. But you do not have to put up with it.
After years of hearing her mum tell her that no job is worth the anguish Trisha was feeling, Trisha finally announced last weekend that she had quit.
The sense of relief and freedom that Trisha now feels is incredible. She is lucky, her mum is very supportive and reassuring that she knows she will get another job and a better one. Where she will be treated with the respect she deserves; where she will be given a fair wage for a fair day’s work.
If Trisha’s story has sounded familiar for you then don’t let yourself be used any longer. You can do something about it. Maybe the first step is using the company’s complaint systems that are in place and know how to approach this so that you get the outcome you deserve is what is holding you back.
Perhaps you really want to leave but are scared of not finding another job.
It is a good idea not to leave until you have another job secured, but it can be very damaging to your health if you stay with a company where you are stressed and anxious. So take the steps you need to cope while you find the right job for you.
