I Hate My Job! I Hate My Boss! I Hate My Clients!
Welcome to Oh My, I Hate My Job.
Get what it takes to take anything your job gives.
When you hate your job it effects every other aspect of your life. Your social life lacks vigor. Your family life cools of love. Your financial life turns bearish. All because when you hate your job your mental health tumbles, your emotional health ebbs and your physical health crumbles.
Stay in “I hate my job” too long you start to travel down the ever dangerous “I hate my life” path. It’s not a journey you want to take.
But, if “I hate my job” is you, well, you are in the right place.
This is not a your normal daily diary “I hate my job” rant blog. You’ll not find me discussing my frustrations and failings in mind melting minutiae. No, the “I” in I hate my job is you. It’s all to help you.
And no I’m not some guru seated on high having eclipsed all worldly work-related problems. I’m not some hero who in my magnanimity dared to stoop low to touch you with soft words of life transforming wisdom.
I’m a regular guy, who’s made plenty of mistakes…except I’ve learned from them…and continue to do so.
The Oh My, I Hate My Job Blog is a simple collection of challenging wisdom and healthy perspectives divided into three categories.
- I Hate My Job focuses on your work.
- I Hate My Boss delves into issues specific to your boss.
- I Hate My Clients addresses the circumstances surrounding difficult clients and difficult customers.
I Hate My Job
If you really hate your job, the work part of it, this is the category where you need to start. Do any of these speak to you?
“I hate my job because of stress.”
“I hate my job because of my coworkers.”
“I hate work because it’s too hard.”
“I hate work because it’s too easy.”
“I hate my job because it’s without meaning, purpose, or value in this time, this world, this life, this reality.”
I Hate My Boss
We weren’t all blessed with the perfect boss…the non-existent one. You’ve got one and there’s little you can do about it without acting in a way severely frowned upon by the courts.
How do you handle your boss? Can he or she really be handled? How do you handle yourself?
The I Hate My Boss category gives you both short term and long term resources. You can hate your boss today and just vent, but when you hate your boss a year from now for the same reasons with the same intensity and stress…well that’s a less than optimal situation.
Is it possible to survive and thrive even though, at the moment, you hate your boss intensely?
Can you go from a vitriolic “I hate my boss” to a mild “my boss is sometimes an obstacle,” to even, “my boss doesn’t bother me anymore,” to “I don’t hate my boss, I get my boss, and his/her issues, and know how to deal with them without it messing with my work and my day?”
Stay tuned to find out.
I Hate My Client
Do you have difficult clients goading you to erupt in frustration? Do difficult customers steal the jam out of your donut? Perhaps you have just one difficult customer who’s an absolute knit picking monster or an oaf whose thoughts are as substantial as a swarm of mayflies?
There is no magic staff to banish them to oblivion. Business requires customers. They are the lifeblood of your job, they are why, at some level, your job exists in the first place.
How do you deal with their games? Their expectations? Can you go beyond placating them?

Currently there is only one available. It’s called Room 2 Maneuver and focuses on handling the mental and emotional issues that hit you daily.

What’s the big takeaway from it?
You’re an adult.
That’s it. As an adult if you’re given enough space and enough resources you can handle yourself. You can handle your situation if you just had a little bit of wiggle room. That’s the whole point of the book.
I’ve worked on it for maybe 2 years now. It’s not polished, but the ideas are sound and I’ve tried it on my own situations and helped others in theirs. It’s affordable and available, check it out, right here.
Go ahead snoop around.
Sure, you hate your job now. But you need to keep your job. But who said keeping a job you hate means you are forever left alone to suck it, take it, grit your teeth and bare it?
