Work: Be careful what you wish for
I have been on this site for several years as I suffered from depression after leaving my job. I went back to work part-time in odd jobs (Many of which I could work from home) but never seemed to find a mentally challenging opportunity.
And then, it happened.
I was offered a part-time position in HR by a previous colleague and I took it. At first, it was good to be in the field I had worked in for years. But after a few weeks, I started resenting the structure of the job - no more remote work, phone calls on my days off, poor training on corporate philosophy and structure and little time to do any of my hobbies.
So....I feel like such a whiner!
But I made a mistake and I don't know how to get out of it. I don't want to disappoint my friend and perhaps tarnish my reputation in this tight community, but I feel trapped.
You can just tell me to suck it up - I'd understand. But does anyone have a recommendation.
