Is it normal to want to quit a job i like?

I have enjoyed my job for the past year but now I have a random desire to want to quit. Well, I feel like an outcast but I guess it's just because of my depression. But I'm also getting criticism every day, all throughout the day, that my work isn't right. I'm doing what I was told, but it's like they change the rules and use me as an example of doing the wrong thing. It's bringing me down extremely. Why am I there then if everything I do is wrong?

Obviously I can't just quit because I need the money but I have a desire to. Again and again my life, I always end up feeling like an outcast and then I isolate myself from the world.

This can't be normal?

  • It's normal but I wouldn't act on that urge. Maybe try to figure out how to go about being content with what you have.

  • What kinda work is it that you have at this job?

  • Do not quit a job you like with how hard it is to get a job nowadays especially a good one. I know some people get bored easily but that means you'll get bored with anything you take on, keep that in mind, and work isn't really supposed to be fun anyway. It's something we do to earn money to survive. If you're gonna quit then find a new job first. I never feel I fit with co-workers because i'm not social and I cant even force myself to be but that's just life and the negative part of any job.

  • Looking into something different isn’t a bad thing if you truly aren’t happy where you are at but if it’s something you think you can work through and get past in order to keep the job, you could do that too. It’s all in what makes you happy and does good for you.

  • I tend to feel that way as well at work. It sucks to not fit in and sucks to be used as an example of what not to do, especially when you did what you were meant to do.
    It's possible that could happen and another job. Try to remember what drew you to this job in the first place.

    • This is good advice. I feel like what drew me to the job has changed a lot, which is why I'm feeling down about it. Tasks and responsibilities have changed and it's become overwhelming. But I'm also the type of person who ends up getting bored and hating everything in a short amount of time. I wish I could just be content with things.
