Fear of the Unknown

I received a phone call from a friend yesterday where he narrated his current ordeal with the company he works for. It's been a long time since he started complaining bitterly about how badly the company handles its staff. Stuff like lack of motivation for the employees, tampering with their salaries over any single issue, not doing some things in hierarchy thereby attracting disrespect from his junior colleagues in the company, and forcing the staff to repair and fuel the company cars given to them for the company's services . The list is endless, and from the looks of things, he has been so indecisive about resigning or managing the situation.
He is afraid of the uncertainties that await him if he leaves the job
.

Well, as a friend, I advised him to take the bold decision of quitting after he repeated the same issues yesterday. knowing that he has spoken with the boss about it several times without any positive result. I saw that the whole thing had eaten deep into his emotions. He is no longer an active guy that I know; it's been from one complaint or the other, and it's not healthy for a young man like him who plans for a better future for his wife and their future children. I understand his fears, but it doesn't make any sense to remain in an organization where your mind isn't there anymore. The truth is that even his input to the company will be affected with time, and it might warrant an urgent dismissal.

So, finding yourself in a similar situation, what should you do? Good things don't finish. It might be difficult to take certain decisions at the beginning, but killing our fears and facing our challenges for a better opportunity remains the goal.

The fear of the unknown has made a lot of people remain in slavery for years. When you have an unhealthy working condition, it's better to push for a solution, and when it fails, take a bold step into another offer, even though it might take a while, but it looks better; after all, peace of mind is a luxury!

I completely agree that staying in an unhealthy working environment is not worth sacrificing one's peace of mind and mental health. It can be scary to take the leap into the unknown, but sometimes it's necessary to prioritize one's well-being and professional growth. It's important to assess one's values and priorities and make a decision that aligns with them, even if it's not the easiest or most comfortable option. It takes courage to face one's fears and make a change, but it can lead to greater opportunities and a happier life in the long run.

I understand why he doesn't want to quit his present job. who knows how long it would take him to find another. All these are the reason why the kind of job I want to have is a work-from-home job, and which is why I am building my skill for that type of career path.

A work-from-home kind of job makes it easy to work for a company while searching for a job in another company.

Exactly star..... many people enjoy their peace of mind working from home while earning well at the same time.

His kind of job doesn't require working from home anyway cos he is a builder , however staying in an unhealthy working condition is not the best

There was a friend of mine who lost his job years ago. He told me that he thought that the job was the best he can ever have thus was depressed for months. Luckily for him he hot another good that happened to be far better than his previous job.

You see... sometimes fear can cage someone and taking a calculated decision can give a better result

Honestly, I thought of you for a moment before I saw this post, I've missed reading your post.

And the fear of the unknown happens to everyone, especially salary earners as they fear what might become their lot after quitting, but I always tell them, nobody gets rich with a salary.

If he has a skill, then he is good to go, please let him leave and start a new page, what will be will be.

It might not be easy at first, but with time and consistency it will be worth it.

How are you my friend?

Oh my goodness 🤭🤭🤭
Like seriously? I feel loved knowing that someone is somewhere thinking about my little me? Lol
Oh my darling...thank you for the honour

Indeed what will be will be
Salary work is just a job to manage poverty but it can never cure poverty

Business and others better
I will still try to talk to him

I am very fine my friend and you?

I was captivated with the last line, indeed having a peaceful mind can not be compared with anything, we have to fight for our peace at all cost.

The majority of this boss use to behave like demons, but I'm always grateful they are not God. They act as if the world belong to them and they'll think their workers don't have any option than to stay. If I have that kind of boss i can't stay with him/her...

one thing people don't understand is that , if they go out to search for another work, they might end up seeing a better one, but they chose to stay because they are afraid .. their mind is trouble with different kind of "what if" ....
What if i don't see another one..
what if I this and that don't work out.

You are very correct my dear
A lot of what if...
But then breaking boundaries seems better most times

I believe that if we don't feel comfortable in our workplace then it's better to leave work in that company. Everything can't be tolerated. Sometimes we have to take some aggressive decision also to make our life better.

I do agree with you too
Unfortunately some people dwell in an unhealthy place for long hoping for an indefinite change
