I'm going through kind of a rough patch in my life right now. I'm not thrilled with my job - feel like I'm not growing and being challenged the way I want to and not contributing meaningfully. (Cont)

Sorry to hear that OP. Plan activities through the day/week to do things you enjoy. For example, if working out makes you happy, carve time out of your day to do that. If you like vacations, plan for a trip or two a month. You could just do weekend trips. Talk to people you care about. Learn to say no if you don’t want to do something for someone. Remind yourself often that you are the most important person to yourself.

Does reading making you happy? If yes, set time aside to read. What are your hobbies? Maybe you can take a class for something you have always wanted to learn, but never had the time to?

For some reason everyone I know is constantly too busy for me and can’t squeeze me into their schedule. Sometimes I’d text a friend a very simple question and it takes them days to get back to me. I know that every has shit going on and I try not to let it bother me, but it does. At some point you have to say fuck it, I’m putting myself first. People who don’t have time for me in their schedules I won’t have time for either.

That's the thing, I feel like it's so hard to find things that make me happy. I'm realizing that a lot of people I care about don't care the same way for me and are probably not worth having in my life. I love traveling but unfortunately don't have the time or money to go on weekend trips all the time - have been traveling a lot lately so trying to take a break from it

Hi all! New to fishbowl and looking for some advice! I currently have 2 bachelors degrees and a Masters in Health Sciences. I have 7 years of inpatient healthcare experience and have started as a Data coordinator in solid tumor cancer research about 3 months ago. I get paid around $20/hr and am highly overqualified for basic data entry. However through out this process I’ve realized I love the science of what I do and want to possibly be a clinical scientist. Path/job suggestions?

A HR question I really want to understand. ISRS HR quoted a podcast "The not so great resignation" saying 70% regret leaving and many want to go back to old employer. If this really the case the employee likely left due to higher pay at the new company. If they want to boomerang back they will likely come back at even a higher rate than they left the new company for. So getting double raise when they boomeranged. Isn't it unbeneficial, why not just give employee a 7% raise in the first place?
