I'm unhappy with my job big time although the work is pretty stress-free, I'm just not happy. I get paid only $12 bucks an hour (I can't support myself on my own with that especially with the rising costs of living), haven't received a raise in 3 years and bosses took away my vacation :( and I feel so resentful about that too. Basically there are no incentives other than simply just having a job and receiving a paycheck. No matter how much I try to be grateful though and focus on the positives, I can't shake off or ignore the fact that I'm just not happy here anymore and I hate waking up early for this job. I just have nothing to look forward to here, there is no financial growth whatsoever. It depresses me that I don't seem to have the courage to leave. I stay because I'm scared the next job might be worse or might not fit my complex personality style (Im kinda shy and like being to myself, not the most "team-oriented"), I'm scared because I don't have hardly any money in my savings to back me up just in case the next job doesn't work out. What if the next job lays me off in a matter of months working there? Can I file unemployment to my previous employer, where I was at for 5 yrs even though I quit? Its like Im almost waiting for these people to lay me off so I can get unemployment and look for a better opportunity, one that I know fits my personality, pays better and offers vacation benefits but I think they'd rather have me here working then have to pay towards someone whos not here. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
