Changing companies might in fact be the right answer, but if you notice a recurring theme starting to happen where the same thing tends to show up in your life and repeat itself, it’s time to take a step back and look at the possibility that YOU might be the problem. Or more specifically, your mindset.
What do I mean by this?
Is it really your job (relationship, home, partner, cat….) that is making you unhappy or is it how you are thinking about it?
There might indeed be a number of reasons why you are unhappy. Perhaps, it is your boss who is a micromanager, or worse yet, a bully, who’s making your life miserable. It could be your neighbour who is keeping you up all night due to the noise they are making. Maybe, it’s the relationship you are in that is making you feel bad.
All that said, before you conclude it’s an external factor that’s causing you this pain, ask yourself these questions:
- Have I tried everything to rectify the problem?
- Is there something I’m doing that’s causing this situation?
