When people work because they have to and not because they want to, how do they feel about that job?

Sorry I'm not trying to say it, but this is a dumb question.

No one can say "how they feel about it." What the hell does that mean?

Everyone has their OWN reasons for working anywhere, usually because they need money.

My favorite uncle, when I grew up in the fifties, was an oil rigger for Sinclair Oil. He did not graduate from high school. In the late seventies, he was a millionaire.

He told me something I have never forgotten: "Never feel too good to take a job to be able to feed yourself, to feed your family, to keep the roof over your head." Your "supposed pride" will allow you

It feels like forced labor. The only difference is that your paycheck is pointed at you instead of a gun.

The situation worsens when you realize that you do not love your job and you know that there are people who depend on you to survive. You want to go out and start a new life, but you can't due to external factors.

For example, I worked at a company that made software to meet their needs. There came a time when I felt like I wasn't going anywhere, that I couldn't do what I wanted to do and I couldn't think about what I wanted either because I was always busy and it was a big problem.

The situation worsens when you realize that you do not love your job and you know that there are people who depend on you to survive. You want to go out and start a new life, but you can't due to external factors.

For example, I worked at a company that made software to meet their needs. There came a time when I felt like I was not going anywhere, that I couldn't do what I wanted to do and I couldn't think about what I wanted either because I was always busy and it was such a toxic work environment. . Add that to the fact that I was assigned tasks that I shouldn't do myself. My manager was a toxic person. Always angry about little things and I don't really have any experience with what I'm doing. I started to feel anxious because my instincts told me that I had to get out of there as soon as possible. Fortunately, I had no family or other responsibilities to weigh me down. So I left after the 30 day notice of my resignation.

Now that I have a new job that is closer to home and allows me to use my skills to their fullest potential, I was able to relax a bit. I also enjoy the new work environment because it was nothing like my old job. I also have to balance my life and now I have time to be able to do the things I wanted to do.

Edit:

I also forgot to mention the fact that I was forced to work overtime at my previous job. In my case, every time my shift was about to end, my manager would tell the guards in our building not to let me out until she tells them to.

Life seems unfair sometimes we just have to take a job to make ends meet, it's not a good feeling but hey, at least you have food.

I'm a contractor and finding the next gig is difficult so I ended up working at a gas station and also as a switchboard wiring engineer, so he's not happy, but at least I put food on the table for my family.

I ended up with little confidence in my self-esteem and many temperament issues that I recognized and fixed to fall in love with my next job.

I learned a lot about myself, my needs and survival, now I am a minimalist person. I still work in the best positions, but I really don't.

When you have to support your family, it doesn't really matter how you feel about work ... you persevere in supporting your family ... You would think that the feeling of being trapped ... this job is paying the bills .. When will you have time to do it? finding another job ... and the risk of losing your job, if your employer finds out that you want to improve your game ... they can let you go ... and if that happens, it creates difficulties for everyone ... is a lot to consider ... stand still ... or dare to risk everything to find another job.

When you have to support your family, it doesn't really matter how you feel about work ... you persevere in supporting your family ... You would think that the feeling of being trapped ... this job is paying the bills .. When will you have time to do it? finding another job ... and the risk of losing your job, if your employer finds out that you want to improve your game ... they can let you go ... and if that happens, it creates difficulties for everyone ... is a lot to consider ... stand still ... or dare to risk everything to find another job. A good man provides ... no matter what he does for his job ... everything is fine.

That happens all the time. Very common.

Look, a lot of people see a job as simply a means to an end and nothing more.

For example, we have very lucrative paid jobs here in the oil fields. Huge salaries, but the work is hard, repetitive and the living conditions are basic (many live in mobile homes). They work, say, two weeks, they have a week off ...

People who take those jobs are mostly saving money to buy a house, pay for a house, send their children to college, etc. Then they see it for what it is. One job and don't complain.

It depends.

Some just continue the day and do their work with dedication, while others fear that the day will end as soon as possible, but they have no choice but to be there as they have expenses to pay and commitments ... so it depends on how the individual takes it in the end and how they want to feel ..

Like normal people. It is a bell chart and they are right in the middle as it is the most common feeling people have about their work. Most people work because they have to, not because they want to. Moving towards the corners you will find people who love their job and prefer to be doing it rather than anything else, and on the other side you will find people who hate their job so much that it gives them ulcers and it is a dread to get out of it. bed to go to work.

You've probably just described 98% of the people on planet Earth. We all work because we need to. Sometimes we get lucky or plan well and get a job that we really enjoy. If we can, we could retire early. That is goodness.

According to some studies, at least half of American workers hate their jobs, but they have to because they have to pay rent, buy food, etc.

I will be real with you. stinks. For the most part, it sucks. Unless you get paid well or you just like your job, but I guess that you like the job is not your question, is it? When I started my business, I had to work the night shift delivering pizzas. No, he hated it. But I fell in love for the first time working there, and I learned a thing or two about pizza, business, and customer service. I guess in the end it comes down to how you look at things. By the way, I have worked full time for the last 5 years for my business. Covid has caused me to take a hit, but I am truly very grateful.

By the way, I have worked full time for the last 5 years for my business. Covid has caused it to be affected, but I really am very grateful for my business. I thank God for my business. So to answer your question, I guess it sucks to work at a job you don't like. It depends on how you look at things. There is something to learn in every job. I really believe in this opportunity everywhere you work. You just have to look it up. The world may be ending, hahaha, but for now America is still a great capitalist country. You can always go up.

A person would feel unmotivated and bitter. That is why it is important to take a step back and really evaluate what it is that we want to do in life.
