Default Laziness/entitlement

I resent having to look for a job right now. It's so stressful and I don't know what say. Plus why do i have to give my time to someone just to be offered enough to barely survive on and maybe a couple days a week to do what I want...if that. There I said it I think maybe I do have an entitled mentality but it's my life it's my time and I don't get anymore I'm so tired of everyone else having control of what I do with my time. I'm so tired. I feel like admitting you don't want a job is tantamount to admitting to a murder in the US at least, maybe it's better abroad, I don't know. I'm probably just not talented or ambitious enough to live life on my terms in the way I want, or maybe I'm just stubborn.

Is it the fact that you have to work at all, or the fact that you have to work in a field you don't enjoy? There's a big difference between these two.

Working in a field that does not mesh well with your strengths and desires can be very soul-sucking. For example, I cannot work in the restaurant industry anymore because it is far too fast-paced and stressful. I decided to go to school to get involved in a field I am passionate about, and will be graduating soon. Perhaps it's just a matter of finding out where you -want- to work? What interests do you have, what are you passionate about?

If you donít want to job you shouldnít feel bad about not having one. But if you need money to survive you were going to have to take a job even if you donít like it that much. Donít be so hard on yourself and keep your chin up.

Yes, work sucks. I have been working since I was 16 and I only enjoyed one job. I moved so I had to quit. But, that's life. My current job is the worst sewer I have ever worked in. But, if I want things, I have to work. Period. My house is getting close to paid off. Yay, me.

I have a very strong viewpoint on this which I have been given grief for stating before; but, I can't help but weigh in on this.

It really depends on your living circumstances.

I have to ask then in what manner you are cared for and in what ways you contribute? Do you pay rent and for food, utilities, etc? If you are not working are you on assistance or do you depend on others' kindness? In what ways then are you self-sufficient?

MedusaX is right. Working tends to suck, but it's what most of us in this world have to do to live and pay for the things we need or want.

I donít know whatís wrong with me, I often canít sleep due to stressing about work. I think maybe I am afraid Iím spending my life at a job Iím not supposed to be at, or I feel incompetent at.

I completely understand what youíre saying, although ( without sounding offensive) your statement comes off a bit aggressive. But i totally get it! My perspective may be based off of more fear than disgust, i fear becoming another sheep. I fear the template of ď school, work, deathĒ... seems to be the inevitable path for many citizens and I absolutely hate it. Doesnít matter if youíre waiting staff or in management. Youíre literally working yourself to death for people who only see you as a number. As a number who provides a service. And forget about exploring a talent or skill, people dont even want o do the basic things in life like have kids or hell take a vacation because of the time money and energy it takes to get back on track... itís sad... I donít mind working, but id like some level of control in what or when I do something so i dont feel as though im only conforming to survive but also when things get unbearable i can step away and not suffer because of it... thatís just me...
