You find yourself feeling resentful as you answer another call at dinnertime, stepping away from the table and your family to deal with work.
You’re starting to wonder what you’re doing when you’re pushing your son on the swings at the playground on a Saturday and simultaneously checking email so you don’t get behind.
You find yourself comparing work to some old – and not so great – relationships you’ve had in the past. Remembering how great it felt to let go of that friendship that became so one-sided that you spent all of your time supporting her while not being able to get a word in edgewise.
Your situation with work feels so much the same, like a BFF gone bad.
Is it time to break up with Work?
Here are a few clues:
• Work takes more than it gives; Work’s never satisfied. For Work, everything is always “me, me, me.” Work doesn’t ever ask you what you want anymore.
• Work crosses over all of your boundaries, interrupts your time with your family, doesn’t listen when you say no.
• Work isn’t fun anymore. Work constantly complains. There's always something wrong with Work.
• When you’re around Work, you feel resentful, burned out, and tired.
Do you want to find new Work but you don’t know how to figure out what comes next? Are you worried that leaving your current Work will just involve starting a relationship with a new job that will end up being just like the old one?
