Am I Just Restless?

October 30, 2012 by Lady Unemployed


So, I have been at my present job for three months now. And yes, I’m still not enjoying it. And yes, that coworker I had problems with before, is still giving me problems.

Is it just me being restless, though? I can’t help but wonder that.

I would like things to feel like they are moving forward for me, but I just don’t feel that way at the job I have now. I don’t feel a part of the work atmosphere and I don’t like what I do. I barely like some of the people I work around.

What do you do when you feel restless and you just don’t know what to do about it?

    I was at a job where I felt like I contributed absolutely nothing, while I sat a desk in a cubicle for 8 hours a day. It wasn’t great for my self esteem. What I did was take on a new challenge. I decided to earn my certificate in wedding and event planning from an online school. The company I was working for ended up closing the location I was at, so I had no choice but to move on anyway. But I almost immediately found a part-time job for a wedding company! I’m still working toward my certificate, but it’s easy to focus and strive for new goals because the “work” is fun for me.

    My advice is to start putting some feelers out there, network a whole bunch, and look for a new job that allows you to express yourself and actually show off your talents. You owe it to yourself to explore options that are going to give you satisfaction and fulfillment at the end of the day.

    Good luck!

    I also worked at a job where I felt very disconnected and moving in quicksand. It sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders because you haven’t quit and abandoned your adult responsibilities (i.e. paying horrible bills).

    Look for a new job. You are currently employed, so that odd universal truth is that you are more attractive to another business. It’s just like when you are in a relationship and everyone suddenly finds you irresistible.

    Use a few evenings and start your job search again. You are Lady Unemployed! You know your way around a resume 🙂 I wish you luck.

    Oh my goodness, Lady, you are not alone! I have been at my job for just going on 3 months now too and I am bored, bored, bored. It’s a busy work environment and the people are lovely. It is just not me. It’s too corporate and the work is dull and unsatisfying and it’s awful to feel that way so new into a job.

    But, it just means that it’s not the right role for you and you have the luxury of being able to look for something else, while still having a pay-check!

    Find your passion. That’s what I’m doing – trying to find fulfillment outside the four glass walls of this office.

    Good luck!!

    • Very true!!! If I can find fulfillment outside of work, that is good for me! I think I may have found it with this blog, too. 🙂 Good luck to you! I hope you find a better job as well!!
