Stress is a trigger. Duh.
I wouldn’t necessarily say my job is stressful, but the fact that I’m paid peanuts is. I’m not really happy in it anymore. It’s time for me to move on.
So this morning when I saw a job posting in my field that I would love that would pay nearly double what I’m making now, I lost my shit. In a good way. It gave me hope. Suddenly seeing my job as something with a potentially finite end date lifted some of the stress that I didn’t know that I had. I wouldn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck anymore, and I wouldn’t be settling for whatever I can get.
So here’s to hoping this job pans out, and if not something else comes my way.
