Career change

It’s been six months since I stopped working in childcare for good. I do not miss it at all, yet somehow I still feel depressed. What’s wrong with me? It was very stressful and I’m glad to be finally out of that profession. I’m making hell of a lot more money now, but I’m still depressed and can’t stop thinking about the bullshit I went through all those years. Being overworked and underpaid, running after these crazy wild three year olds, dealing with crying babies, helicopter diaper sniffing parents, let alone office politics finally caught up with me. I think I’m going through the aftershocks of finally leaving a job after so long and starting a different career path. It’s been an emotional year for me with all the career change and I’m counting the days until this bloody year is finally over and never coming back. Can’t wait for 2018 to recede into the past.

Childcare is a hard job for little pay, it’s not for everyone and even some people who are in the job shouldn’t be.

You switched careers within 6 months and are making more money? What did you switch into and how did you get a job so quickly?

Childcare is Exhausting

I did it for over a decade and I’d never go back. I don’t want children because of it.

If your new job is so much better....than why are you depressed?

If I told you, it wouldn’t be a secret now wouldn’t it. Some things you just gotta figure out for yourself. Learn the ropes on your own. Good luck.
