I don't know if I'm going to do well

FordRangerFordRanger Posts: 925 What a way to make a living...
I know I have made loads of kind of similar discussions, its just i keep getting down on and off in general, its mostly worrying about my future, not feeling my self esteem is there 100 percent and I feel like a failure sometimes. Sometimes I feel fine or good but sometimes I feel like a failure and down worrying about my future thinking it wont work out. I have been thinking recently about jobs like most peoples life is just working 9 to 5 being 5 days a week then having just the weekend off to do stuff then monday back in the same circle. A lot of people work way more hours than 9 to 5 and 5 days a week. It's depressing to me, a lot of people get a job they like too, I want to be like this, I just feel sometimes feel incapable of doing stuff like ending up doing something I'm happy with. Like most of my school time and college time I didnt really like it which most people didn't. Ive just been down like I just feel like I dont know what to do. I know this is reality for most people which sucks, I just want to do something where im happy and everything. I think this is what's worrying me about my future. I keep getting down like on and off, sometimes I'm find but other times I'm just down or feeling like shit.

    @FordRanger I think so many people will agree with you here Ford. All we want is to be happy, and we're forced to work for such a large amount of our lives that there's so much pressure for it to be something that is worth getting up for in the mornings. More places are looking into doing 4 working day weeks and 3 day weekends, maybe you could have a look into what careers do that more often?

    Your life is long, and even if you end up with a job at some point that you don't love, I think eventually you'll find something. People go through so many careers in their lives, basically noone stays in one career. So I think you'll find it and be content. I think you're definitely capable and would work hard for something you had an interest in for sure

    Echoing a lot of what Leyla has said, I know it won't always feel easy to trust this, but allowing ourselves time and space to work out next steps can be the thing that helps move things forward. I can really hear how much pressure you are feeling to have it all worked out, but sometimes it can take trying a few different things before we land on the job that we really love.

    You mentioned that there are periods of time where your self esteem is feeling better, is it worth trying to write down some of how it feels during those moments? Sometimes it can help when our self esteem drops to have something to look back on to remind us that these times do pass and we can feel more positive about ourselves.

    We are all here for you ford, be as kind to yourself as you can right now 💪
