I just want to say — for the millionth time — that a job doesn’t make you crazy. You are who you are. You had problems well before you took on your current role.
So let’s be honest. There are probably some jobs you should avoid if you are depressed, moody, addicted to drugs/alcohol, or otherwise edgy. Here is my list.
- Customer Service
- Public Safety (fire, police)
- Vet Tech
There are probably a million more.
If you have problems that are exacerbated by stress and conflict, don’t leave your house. Don’t work with people. Don’t work with kittens & puppies and transfer your emotional instability onto those animals. The ideal job for you is an overnight stock clerk at Walmart. You probably have insomnia, anyway. No human contact. Simple tasks. No conflict.
Doesn’t matter what job you do. Doesn’t matter if you like your boss or you don’t like your boss. Doesn’t matter if you earn minimum wage or a million dollars. Don’t blame the job. Crazy is constant.
