So, I’m curious. How much do you really like your job? Do you love going in every morning? Do you like the way your work makes you feel? Do you love what your work entails and the people you work with?
If your answer to these questions is yes, then I am so happy for you! It is so important to have work that lights you up and makes you feel happy. For most of us, our work is what we dedicate most of our time to on a weekly basis, so it’s really important that you love your work and it makes you feel empowered.
If the answer to the questions above is no, then let me ask you, why are you still at in that job? I mean no judgement by asking this. I’m just curious to hear why you haven’t left the place that isn’t making you happy.
And with this, I want to let you know that it’s more than okay if you want to leave your job, so you can find your purpose.
You’re not the only one who struggles
For a while, I thought that I was the only one struggling at work. I never really felt like I belonged there or that I was living up to my full potential. There was always this nibbling feeling that I was meant to do something more, but I never knew what that was and how on earth I could figure out what it was. So, I continued to trying to fit in, and I let that feeling linger.
It wasn’t until I had the courage to leave my job that I realized, that I wasn’t the only one who struggled at work. I wasn’t the only one who crumbled under the regime of a harsh boss, I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t keep up with the pressure. Also, I noticed that I wasn’t the only one who was unsatisfied with their job, because somewhere deep down, I knew I’m meant for something far greater.
When I began sharing my story about how I felt at work and why I left, people started to open up to me. More and more people told me that their work is sucking the life out of them. That they cry every morning when their alarm goes off. That they live for the weekend and sometimes even need to take drugs, just so they can forget about their work and the misery it’s giving them for a moment. But despite all of that, most of them stay in their jobs.
Why is that?
Often, we tell ourselves that staying is the best for us, because exploring what else would be possible requires so much soul searching, that we don’t dare to go there. As a result, we say that we’re not happy in our jobs, but we want to hold on to that pay check and the promised pension because we’re afraid that we won’t be able to create enough financial security. Or we say that we’re not happy in our jobs, but we stay because our job title gives us a sense of self-worth.
You’re holding yourself back
I’m going to be blunt here, but these are all stories you’re telling yourself so you can stay in that “safe” familiar spot. While all the while, you’re holding yourself back from what life could be, if you had the courage to step out of that comfort zone. It feels way more comfortable to stay in that hamster wheel, despite the fact that there is a clear exit sign marked as clear as daylight.
Fear is what is stopping you
It’s always fear that stops us from stepping out of that comfort zone. Fear tells us that life can’t become any better if you would leap and listen to your souls crying. Often our pain and unhappiness, unknowingly, become our security blankets. Playing small gives us a false sense of security.
Fear prevents you from creating the life that you truly want. It keeps you from really wanting more for yourself. It keeps you small and tells you that you don’t have it in you to become the badass that you truly are. And you believe it. So, you stay where you are.
It’s more than okay to leave your job and find your purpose
If you recognize yourself in this, please, let this be a wake-up call. You were not put on this earth to feel miserable. You have so much light and potential in you. You know this. If you are waiting for permission to do something with this, let this blog be your permission slip. It’s more than okay to leave your job and find your purpose
Say “yes” to your finding your soul purpose
You know you want a different life for yourself. You know that your soul has been yearning for a life that is much greater, more fulfilling and aligned with who you are. Say “yes” to your soul and start your journey to discover what it is that your soul is crying out for.
Maybe you have no idea what your soul purpose is. Maybe you have a possible purpose waiting for you that you’ve blocked out so long. It doesn’t matter. Your tomorrow starts today, just because of the simple fact that you’ve had the courage to admit to yourself that you want more.
Stop making excuses why a life that is aligned with your soul’s purpose it isn’t for you. Take your life in your own hands and start changing it. One step at a time.
