getting out of a job?

On my MSN homepage, I found a link to an article about leaving your job: Wait Not, Want Not
It suggests that you ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you enjoy getting up and going to work?
  2. Does your job completely drain your energy?
  3. Is your job furthering your goals?
If the answer to any one of these questions is no, it’s time for a change. "A lot of people hang around," Taliaferro says. "They wait for someone to make things better for them, to offer them a promotion or a better assignment. It doesn’t work that way. If you want something, you’ve got to get it yourself."

I could write more about what I feel about this, but I bet you could guess. I answered no to all 3 questions. But I also answered no to the questions "Am I able to leave" and that makes it cancel out the others, unfortunately. :sigh: Someday I’ll be happy. Someday, I’ll enjoy what I do for a living, whether its being a mommy or being out in the workforce or if its working from home as a designer/techie girl. Someday.


My answers to all three questions are no, no and no. So I understand how you feel. I’ve tried leaving, I’ve applied, gone on interviews, submitted references but I always come back disappointed. I’m going on three years of being disappointed. I’ve come close to quitting several times. (Like today.) I just don’t know where to go.
