Do you ever have a bad feeling?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

2 weeks ago I had a horrible feeling at work, and well I was called into a meeting and my boss told me I wasnt improving and that they may not take me on anymore as soon as my intership is done. (this is at the reception by the way)

Well today I have the feeling that I am going to get sent away frome everything even teaching!

I am also getting crazy ideas, my heart keeps telling me its time to pack up, take the kitties to my parents and fly to Australia.

But i dont understand why? I thought I was happy here, and now my heart is telling me otherwise, i feel like its time to go and just drop everything here and leave!

Why is my heart doing this to me!! or lets say my head telling me this!?!!!!!

Do any of you ever have this feeling?

Fran your starting to panic!, so try and calm down.

Are you happy in that job anyway?.

Oh Fran, that is difficult for you. Did he take the time to explain what was wrong and offer you any extra help? If not, I would go to him and say you like the job and you want to do whatever it takes to improve. If you show you are motivated that can go a long way to improving the situation. But whatever happens, good vibes coming your way.

I was untill i started getting all the blame from the new girl who works there, i mean i really like her, but she is just really mixing everything up, and i have to admit sometimes i act blonde, but i did do my work properly!

Now one of my friends who is also a colleague is complaining about the company, and has realised that while i was working there everything was good. So i dont know, she wants to talk to our bosses for me so i dont get fired!

but its not only her who has realised it, its alot of other people too!

I have done that, but it seems that the people who i work with at the reception are really two faced and backstabbers!

Then maybe you need to look for another job, it would be terrible to hafta work with people you can't trust.

Theres nothing worse if your working where theres an atmosphere like that In the meantime try and stick it out, but start looking for another job.

You spend more time at work than at home so you need to be happy during that time.

You sound homesick
post #13 of 27
Oh, that sounds stressful! But try to take a deep breath, and sleep on it. Decide if you really want to continue working there in that environment, or if you'd be more comfortable with a clean start somewhere else...you have to decide what you want more. Good luck!

Yea that.

the advice to relax and think about it and talk to your boss is good.
If after doing that you still get the feeling that its time to leave, then you may be right.
but do the other stuff first

Yep I do..a couple of weeks ago I was freaking out thinking I should move back to Ottawa..Alot of things were going on at work, and I really have no close friends here and the stress added up to a freak out session.

I am okay now thankfully..I've got my wits about me again so I can make rational decisions, not emotional ones.

Good luck sweety, just make sure you really think big changes through...try not to think emotionally, think logically.

I personally really think that everything works itself out...even when things go rough at work.

I know there are so many times that I have paniced and thought that I was losing my job. However, things will get better. Especially if you keep going to your boss and your friends at work report how great you are compared to others.

Give it another month or two. Part of this panic could be your illness too (although that could be also from missing Melbourne). Anyhoo, wait another month or two, save up some money and if your feelings still haven't changed, then rehash somethings.

My intership ends this tuesday, and i dont know if they will take me on further. But i have been saving for quite some time and i always had to use that money on some stupid bill!

I don't know but if you read my post I am going through a similar thing - we have to count ourselves lucky when we find a good boss/job, but they are far and few between.

Besides running away never solves anything - most of the time we just exchange one set of idiots for another, just in another place. Hang in there and start looking for another job - things happen for a reason and I know you'll be just fine!!!!!

Honey I know how your feeling. I have been on contract where I'm working for a year (my contract ends Feb 1st) I have been told that It will not be renued but that I will be kept on until they figure out what to do with me.... talk about job insecurity. I wasnt to just say the heck with it, pack up the Kitties and move home to my parents. This isn't the first time I've felt like it.

Somtimes you just have to sit down with a paper and pen and write down your options.
What can you do if you do loose your job, and how will you fee if you do it
1. Move home - comfortable but are there any jobs there?
2. Look for another job - still not home, but I am independant
3. draw unemployment - just somthing to get my by so I can look for the dream job

No one can make the decision for you but weigh your options carefully you don't want to do somthing you'll regret. Don't do anything rash befor sleeping on it, don't go out and Marry someone just to stay in the country. I suggest taking a good calm look at your situation maybe talk to some freinds about whats going on and plan out a few options.

*HUGS*

I hope this helps a bit

Thank you everyone for your hugs!!

Well my plan last year was to be already in australia (now) and start going to uni or finish off school. But then my dad told me to wait untill he can get his position back in australia, well i have been waiting and i guess i have to wait till April to find out if he can go! I decided to stay in Germany so i can be independent from my parents, but arg JOB SUCKS!
I miss my australian food, and smelling the wonderful beach, and the animals, and the people! -_- Thanks for letting me vent everyone!
Ill update you all how it goes on monday! at work
Tomorrow is australia day, and since im getting better im going to have dinner with some of my australian collegues! At the Australian bar so we all dont feel homesick!

I agree. Could your poor work performance be because you really miss home and secretly want to be forced to go back there? Just a thought.

Now that was succinctly put! Very true.

Its hard for me to give advice on this one Fran since I've been a stay at home for years now...I'm just here to lend my support in your decision. I know it doesn't help much but I always listen to my heart when deciding important stuff though

Good luck to you in whatever you choos to do...
