I have been feeling lost and confused about life. I’m 30 and still don’t know what I want to do with my life. I did not go to college and I don’t feel It’s for me. I work in retail but I hate it. I thought I had a passion for other jobs that I’ve had in life, but it turned out I don’t. I can’t find anything that makes me happy and that I can stand. I quit jobs constantly because I don’t like them or I just feel like i don’t fit in with the people at the jobs. I’d rather work alone because I can’t stand working with people because a lot of people drain my energy with being negative.
It’s depressing because for years I’ve felt like my life has not moved forward. I feel stuck I know I could be great and successful I just don’t know what I’m good at. I don’t like traditional 9 to 5 jobs but I don’t feel i have talent nor money to do anything else creative.I’m 30 and Still Don’t Know What to Do with My Life
I’m 30 and Still Don’t Know What to Do with My Life
Thank you for writing. Although I sense your frustration, I do want to remind you that you are 30, not 90. You have time to find a career that will give you satisfaction for many decades. But you won’t find a passion unless you look for it.
I suggest you start with a career counselor. Career counselors are specially trained to help people identify talents and areas of interest that can lead to a good job. A counselor will also support you as you explore different possibilities and will help you take a look at ways you may be sabotaging yourself so you can change your approach to work.
I do suggest that you use your sessions to help you take a close look at why you have so much difficulty being around other people. That probably has a great deal to do with your discomfort in jobs.
Going from job to job hasn’t worked for you. Focus instead on getting to the root of the problem.
I wish you well.
