Got it together

Even though most people I know think I have a handle on things, I don't. I'm struggling financially and feel stuck in a job I hate. I'm to embarrassed to ask for help and feel ashamed.

  • Never feel ashamed to ask for help if its there.

  • I'm the opposite - I love my job, but don't make enough money!

    I have to hand wash clothes in a sink sometimes!

    I want to get an additional job on top of the one I have but can't right now due to some major health issues!

    Outwardly, I act calm, and never ask for help!

    Movies and music and meditation save me - good luck and here's' to hoping for some better luck for the both of us!

  • You're not alone, if there's any comfort in that. A lot of people are in the same boat.. You have nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of. Ask for help, the worse that anyone will say is no. And you'll still survive and find a way. Look for creative ways to save money and/or make money. It will be tough, but you'll figure it out. Update your resume and continue network and look for a different job. But while you're at your current job try not to let it get to you. Make time for yourself outside of work to work out, see friends, treat yourself. At work, if you have friends go to lunch and get away from your workplace. Or for lunch - go for a walk. Just keep things in perspective and stay positive. Change will come.

  • Go chat to somone. Priest or charity person

  • Hope it all turns out ok for you. My family struggles the saying is you live paycheck to paycheck but the reality is you live paycheck to about a week before your next paycheck. Its hard and asking for help makes you feel worse. What do you do for a living might I ask? I work in a cnc machine shop been doing it forever. I love the work but hate the company I do it for so I can definitely relate to feeling stuck in a job you hate. Any way guess I'm just rambling I hope it all works out for you.
