I’m having a bad day at work today.
I work too many hours and don’t get paid for the overtime. Despite the extra hours, the work piles up and it’s hard to keep on top of it. I’m feeling overworked and I’m most definitely underpaid.
It’s one of those days when I’m not too fond of my coworkers. It feels like I can never do enough to please my boss. Today, I’m not even sure management cares for or appreciates the work I’m doing.
My schedule is nutty. I usually have back to back meetings with no breaks in between. Days off are rare; forget about vacation. I almost always work right through lunch. There’s often an overnight shift.
On days like today, it just feels like I’m going through the motions.
I know I have job security but sometimes I wonder how I even ended up here. Sometimes, the demands of my job seem more than I can handle.
Some days, it can be really, really hard to be a mom.
