SUGGESTIONS AND ADVICE (LOW B2)
“I’m fed up and frustrated with my job– is it wrong to want more from my working life?”
JANE IS FED UP WITH HER JOB AS A PA AND IS THINKING ABOUT QUITTING.HER LETTER WAS PUBLISHED IN THE ADVICE COLUMN OF MCARGOBE´S BLOG SO THAT READERS CAN OFFER THEIR OWN ADVICE AND SUGGESTIONS.
“After 10 years or so working in a large corporation I am fed up, and find that my personal principles are given no value because they do not conform with the bigger picture. I have never felt like I have fitted here anyway .
I find myself in tears of frustration at times because I can’t simply do what I am told without questioning the decisions. I am not a troublemaker or arrogant, but neither do I see the point of doing something valueless because it ticks a box somewhere. I can’t beat them but I can’t join them either, and I want out.
The only issue is I have absolutely no idea what I want to do and feel trapped by the nice salary. My creativity is totally drained and I don’t have any particular talents I am aware of. Colleagues have always said I should work in a creative industry, but I am not a creative (although I have just moved into communications).
I have a partner who thinks I am simply too emotional and should just get on with it. I am indeed emotional, and would like this – for once – to be used constructively. I need to take charge but I have no idea where to even start unravelling it all. Am I being too naive to want more for myself from my working life?”
