Please pray for me. I am in a job that I am truly miserable in. I am 25 years old and work in a real estate law office. There are days I work from 7:30 am to 11:00 pm with no breaks and no lunch hour and almost everyday it is at least from 8:00-6:00 with no breaks or no lunch hour. And I work for a boss that will not even let us take sick days or go to the doctor during any end of the month. This job has also taken a toll on my physical health as well as my mental wellness. Since I began it 4 years ago, I have developed acid reflux, migrains, insomnia, depression, and my weight has been up and down constantly(losing and gaining betwen 20-50 lbs each time). And I am generally an unhappy person now where I used to be jovial and smiling. As far as the mental wellness goes, I go home crying many times because I am so stressed and I also get needlessly angry at my father and my husband constantly when I can’t have a minute to myself. I am also currently working on my Masters degree in Education, which is my “light at the end of the tunnel” so to speak and my way out of my current job, but I get so frustrated sometimes because I can only take 1 class per semester since that is all my boss allows me to go to since I have to leave at 4. At this point it seems I’ll never get finished with my Masters degree unless I can get a teaching job, which I’ve applied for but not heard back. It seems I’ll be miserable in my current job forever. I try to remember that all the work we do is for God and that no matter what it is that my job is where God wants me right now. But it is so hard sometimes.
Please just pray for me and my family that I will either find another job or that things will get better in the long run at my current job. I just need to feel like I am not alone. Thank you all so much, you are always so great!
