Prayer for better opportunities

by Anonymous (U.S.)

Please pray for me. I don’t want people to think that I am a horrible person but I dislike my job so much. I took the job out of desperation and I’m more miserable than I was when I was unemployed. Been there for a year. I’ve never cried so much over a job. I am thankful I still have one but I’m ready to give up.

It took me a year to even find a job after unemployment so I really don’t wanna just give up like that. I keep trying to focus on the positive but it’s getting more difficult.

I have to pray to just to even make it through the day. Very toxic coworkers, pay is OK but I commute a very long way back and forth, my talents and skills are not being used and going to waste, now feel harassed by a male coworker, and never have I ever tried so hard at something that I’m not that great at, nor do I like, nor do I desire to have a career in–and failed miserably multiple times.

I focused on improvement despite the fact, improved greatly, and I moved to a new department which gave me hope, but it seems a dark rain cloud has followed me…or I’m being so tested but I don’t think I can handle much more.

I desire a better job but what if I’m not supposed to leave it? I’m so lost. Jesus I’m so tired. I thank you for getting through this so far but now what do I do? Please help.
