5 Reasons Why You Hate Work

You will see a lot of people drag themselves to work, a lot of hate-Monday memes, a lot of dead inside because of work means. Why does this happen? Why do people hate working? Is it because they don’t want to work or is it the environment they are working in? Here are some top reasons people hate work. While they are sad, they are valid, and the core reason for many people’s dissatisfaction from work.

1. You don’t feel excited to get to your office


When you don’t love what you do, even getting to the office can seem like a big task. Dragging yourself from the bed every morning, convincing yourself how quitting right now would be a bad idea. Giving yourself a dejected pep talk before leaving to just get into work and survive the day is something that a lot of people do. If even the thought of going to the office kills you, you really need to reevaluate your situation and think about what can be done about it.

2. You don’t feel much appreciated at your office

This happens when you don’t have a good boss. A good boss will always make you feel appreciated. A lot of people who do not like their work blame it on their managers or bosses. Higher level associates also have the responsibility of boosting morale in the office, and this is something that most of them forget. Not feeling appreciated can lead to your work slipping in quality, which in turn, makes you again feel bad.

3. You have difficulty getting your most important work accomplished

When you are not happy with your job and feel like it doesn’t matter how well you do a job you will never be appreciated; it gets difficult to do important tasks. Important work requires your time, skill, and dedication. When it feels like no one cares, it mentally makes you question the purpose of doing it at all. You then have to keep pushing yourself to complete the task.

4. You don’t believe that your work makes much of a difference

This is also one of the main reasons why you face difficulty completing the important chores. When what you do starts seeming meaningless, without a purpose, useless, it is very difficult to still keep going. Validation is important for a lot of people to keep working. If self-validation isn’t present, people seek it from others. Not being appreciated also makes people feel that what they are doing isn’t good enough or isn’t making a difference.

5. Your energy is always drained

When you spend more time convincing yourself to work than working, you get tired pretty soon. Having to constantly keep motivating ourselves just to keep going can be emotionally and mentally draining. People who do not like their jobs find that they do not have the energy to do anything else after their work day is over. This creates a cycle of not doing anything after work and thinking that work leaves you no time to do anything after work.

It is really important to find a job that you love and value. If any of these reasons describe your current situation, you might want to look for a solution. If you are at a job that isn’t helping you grow, in fact, it is pulling you backward, then the best thing to do is change jobs. Put your mental health first, start meditating. Relaxing your mind can help reduce stress.
