  1. This was helpful to see this video and it made me think of my stress right now, it just popped into my head. My job is about helping others too, I am a Realtor, for 12 years now, I am 56 year old.
    I don’t like my job right now, for two reasons, it has been causing me much pain and it seems like it is always interrupting my fun times.
    First, I have a hard time finding free time where I don’t feel like I should be working. I bulk at opportunities lately where I could help people and make money because I feel it will either cause me pain or interrupt my social life. I think I need to put boundaries on my job and how and when I “work” so I can create down times, for meditation and doing what I want without thinking about work. I was taught to always pick up the phone and be there for my clients. I was taught to turn every social event into a networking event or an opportunity to find business. I just don’t want to feel guilt when I don’t rush to everyone’s needs, but I need to do it respectfully so I don’t create an unfavorable image about me professionally.

    Secondly, I need to put my head right, or have a different perspective, so I don’t feel the pain and therefore avoid situations when I have to deal with people in uncomfortable situations while I am trying to help them. This is not professional either, when I avoid, when they need my guidance. I just am feeling like I can’t help them anymore. I don’t have all the answers, I can’t make it right for them. I have a need to make everything alright for everyone, when I can’t I feel like I am letting them down. I don’t like my job because it seems so hard to help people lately I cant fix their problems. Why would anyone want to hire me? Right now I don’t want them to hire me, I want them to find someone else so I don’t have to deal with it. I cant stay in business with this attitude.
    The funny thing is, this spring I was praying for business, and now I just want all the business to go away! Am I ever happy, can I find balance and peace in THIS JOB?

    I need to do the work and look inside. This is a hard one for me.
