My mind is playing games

As some of you remember i decided to leave the call center job because it was too much for me. I thought I was gonna be stressed out about being unemployed but I'm not. It's strange. I haven't told my parents do maybe that's the reason I feel so calm. I think my mind is playing games with me. Lucky me i have a job interview today. And this place that I have been wanting to work at just open a spot. I will be applying there. Keeping my fingers crossed that I stay calm!!

Ps. I hope everyone has a good day today.

I left my call center jobs (Uber and Venmo) or rather made myself miserable enough to get fired. All of this started after my moms death. I realized I was working for her approval and not for my own. It’s been rough. I think you’re on to something good. Whenever I’m going through a rough transition, I build up routines to add structure to my days. I’m happy you left the call center. Those jobs are tough and companies do not provide any resources for coping with the stress of the job. I think employers need to do better at supporting their employees mental well being.

The job was not fitted for me. I rather deal with a customer face to face than on the phone. Sunday was my breaking point where I told myself that it was better for me not to return. My head was hurting so much and I was all day without eating because it made my stomach hurt. Slowly I have gotten my appetite back. And you are right employers need to have a better mental support systems for their workers. Because it this could happen I would of still have my job at the grocery store.
