Dreaming & Reality

It's been quite a while, since I have written a post, so I thought i would give it a go. Over the last year, I have been strategically trying to align myself into a full time position as an instructor at the local community college. In addition to this, I have a full time job. I have been teaching full time and working full time. It's been quite the challenge to say the least.

My full time job, has well reached a point where I don't think that continuing here is good for my health. I get up in the morning and I am sick to my stomach, this feeling doesn't go away until I leave here. It's really quite sad. It all came to ahead a few months ago, when I got into it with my boss and the bottom sort of fell out for me. I legitimately was not looking for a new position, but my boss has made it essentially a hostile work environment.

So now, I am torn between surviving and living a dream. I have had some good interviews, but the whole process is frankly exhausting. The question remains, should I stay or should I go?

the job market is so tough right now, but I say keep trying. Those types of work environments are no good! I once came home from a day at work, hysterically crying. hubby said, that's it, turn in your resignation. I like the advice troutbend gave you! best of luck to you!

It's not worth jeopardizing your health, but as you say, there is the reality of needing to survive. Single people making a living don't always have the luxury of quitting because things are bad at work, as sad as that can be. Maybe you can look really hard for a replacement job and set a time goal - if you haven't found something by ____ (few months from now), and the workplace is still hostile, you'll go ahead and take the plunge. And meanwhile, see what overhead you can cut out of your life to save more money. Good luck, and keep us informed.
