I left the office with an empty feeling! Gosh! This is so weird! The office pays me pretty well, but lately, I felt so ineffective and so bored. I have been contemplating, and resigning is of the last priority. I feel so inadequate with my work and a little bit insecure. Gosh this is so pathetic. Ok, I am satisfied with the amount I am earning, but, lately, I have realized though I am satisfied with it and that I have created this eternal need of the amount and my cost of living lately, I have to think of a contingency plan on what to do with my life, once that amount might slip away. But then, see, it's my last move. Am I making you confused?! Anyways, it's like this, I am into development work and basically I want to do development work, but lately, I am stuck in the office... so I am thinking if this feeling emanates because I am getting bored inside the office and that lately I have lessen my social life... so I am basically, home-office-homebound!!! BORING! So, I think I need a vacation to refresh my feelings towards job satisfaction... HMMM! What do you think?! Hehe! Have you ever felt something like this, and overcome the feeling... I honestly want to overcome this feeling! You might have any tips on how to be a matured employee?

i can understand the issue. i think we can atleast make a list the two things we are not satisfied in a job. either it is 1. no job satisfaction 2. less salary 3. bad working hours 4. very bad boss etc. we afce any or most of these problems in our job. In my case, there is problem of less alary. I think we have to change this job.

I am currently feeling what you are feeling right now... i am so bored with my life here in the office... since there is nothing for me to do but wait... it is like i get paid for doing nothing at all... for some people... that might be the dream job... but for me... i find that is not a very good thing at all... i don't have a social life... no professional growth... but i cannot just leave my job because... my time is quite flexible... giving me more time for my baby... so for now... there is nothing i can do but stay...

hi there tryxiness. I just want you to know,YOU ARE NOT ALONE with that feeling.:)) Although i consider myself truly blessed for a well paid job with benefits that you can't find within the local industry i am in, there are a lot of times that I feel all those things you mentioned. I often credit that to the thought that this was'nt supposed to be what i would have loved doing in the first place. BUt with parenting responsibilities and all the priorities that came along--it makes me stay put and eventually learned to love where i am,be my best at work and be grateful with what i am blessed with.I DO NOT WANT TO DEPRIVE MYSELF with thots of future regrets, so right now,I am PREPARING for that ultimate dream. I am doing things to make that future become a reality at the same time setting my gears on future things i wanna do esp when i get older and where i would want to be when that time comes and be with what i really wish to be doing. The present set up i am in is where i repeatedly tell myself: "BE THANKFUL, BE GRATEFUL! BUT don't fail to LOOK FORWARD TO THOSE DAYS U WOULD FINALLY WANT TO BE DOING THOSE THINGS U LOVE DOING "--That is, without sacrificing those priorites i have at present.aN AMPLE AMOUNT OF Sacrifice comes along with it--but IF its worth it ( and I know it is..)--i'm willing to do the sacrifices , dive and swim towards it! :)) have a great day!
