Being in that unenviable of positions, its because its a steady wage and I have a family to support. Before I had a family, I skitted from job to job in search of the perfect job, and actually finding a few for a while too, but they were few and far between. Once they're old enough, I'll quit this job and do something else

Money, comfort, family to support. It's hard starting over & you deal with it day to day. I recently left a job that made me miserable, I'm still recoverin from that money loss, but I found a job that I love and look forward to every day. I felt that my misery was affecting my parenting and private life. I feel like I'm becoming a better person and a great mother again. It's hard and everyone does what they feel is best for their families. It's a sacrifice made for love.

Many people work at jobs that they dislike. They will go to work in spite of how awful they find their jobs are. The idea of completing school and finding a “perfect” job that you love and will work there at until you retire, is a bit unrealistic. During your job career you will likely work for many nice managers and companies. However, some of them will be very incompetent or uncompassionate. Some of your co-workers will become great friends and others will treat you badly and try to get you fired. There is no perfect employment situation because imperfect people will always be there with imperfect you. You will need to relearn, retrain and adapt yourself as the job market changes and as your own needs change. You may have health challenges or family needs that impact your career choices. You will probably get bored and tired with the career of your 20s and in 10-20 years will want to take on a new challenge. You may find the “perfect” job you had suddenly ends when the company closes its doors. You may have health challenges or family needs that impact your career choices. You will need to relearn, retrain and adapt yourself as the job market changes and as your own needs change. So finding the “perfect” job that you just love to go to work to each day may not be the reality for you. You may find a job that you have is one you can barely tolerate but it may allow you to have the financial independence to move out from your parents’ home or it may give you the financial capability to enjoy your hobbies. Also, it is good to distinguish between a career and a hobby. The arts including creative writing, music, drama, are wonderful hobbies but make poor careers. You need to find a career that will allow you the freedom, money and time to enjoy your hobbies. If you try to make your hobby a career you may end up finding it is hard to enjoy your hobby and be creative at it when you are not sure how to pay the rent or buy food. If you look for your life fulfillment in your job you are looking in the wrong place. Look for that in your spiritual life at your church or synagogue, your marriage and your family. Jobs will come and go. If you anchor your happiness and fulfillment in a job you will be building a foundation on sand. Best wishes!
