I’m fairly unhappy with my job. I know the first thing people do is say “at least you have a job”.
Don’t do that, it’s dismissive.
Anyway, in my position I really don’t have equal level colleagues to vent to, just subordinates. So I’ll share the stress that this is causing me with my wife, needing to talk to somebody.
I’m now sure that I’m causing her a great deal of stress with all of this. I want to talk about it and get it out, but I don’t want to bring her down with me.
What experiences have you had with this sort of thing?
