Rock Bottom has NO Spring!

Thought I finally found water but only ended up with more dirt! I sharing this in hope that people can avoid making the same mistake out of desperation. After months of searching for a job in management and coming close to wiping out my entire savings account I chose to dumbed down my resume and apply for a job way below my qualifications. October marks my 3rd month for a small company overwhelmed with bad management, disgruntled employees, and a poor career outlook. My self confidence, attitude, and hope of getting back on my feet again is fading into darkness and affecting my mental health. I feel stuck! I think I would have been better off waiting a little longer for a more suiting job opportunity. How can I overcome spiritually, mentally, and physically from this rock bottom situation I feel I’m in right now?

Hey Roxanne, sounds like you're depressed. That’s unfortunately a common reaction to a lot of people that are either unemployed under-employed, or unhappy at work. You have to disconnect yourself from the workplace and focus on things that make you happy.

I agree, you won’t be able to climb out of the plight of that horrible place if you can’t separate the experience or work life from who you really are or want to become. Take a long weekend and reconnect with friends and family or visit places that make you happy. Get re-charged!

You are not your job and your job isn’t you. Punch in get paid and punch out. Sinking yourself deeper into an emotionally negative place because of a job isn’t going to help you get ahead. You might be thinking that you're the only one unhappy with their work life but that’s not true. You would be surprised to find out how many others are in the same boat. More often than not the happiest people at work are the one’s most dissatisfied and hopeless. They’re just able to fake it better than others.
