Lately I’ve lost all drive & discipline. Hate my job & travel, & I find myself depressed & anxious at work. I’ve looked for external opportunities, but I wouldn’t make nearly as much. Recommendations?

What's your life outside of work like? I feel like sometimes hyperfocus on work (which is changeable, but slowly) stems from being unhappy with home life and therefore fixating on something more changeable

May not be the case for you, just curious

OP I’m so over it. I dread everything work related. Wasn’t always the case but I’ve been in the game close to 10 years. I don’t have great options near me. Feeling stuck as well. DM me if you want to chat.

This post is me. I just feel so trapped. I want to move elsewhere, but I can't seem to find something that pays as well. Anything that does pay better are places where the work would be much more intense. I can at least get by where I am. So, I get by. Knowing that I'm "getting by" makes me feel so guilty and hopeless at the same time.

Remember the grass is green where you choose to water it. So hard sometimes to accept

I’m in a rather peculiar situation. I have been in the HR field going on 4 years, I have over 11 years of management experience, I got my PHR last year and I recently graduated with my MBA with a concentration in HR this month. I am ready for a more challenging role. However, there doesn’t seem to be much available at my current company. However, I am going on 5 months pregnant with the expectation of being out in October. I feel like once I mentioned my pregnancy I was in a holding pattern.
