Not Happy

Dear Zach,

I am not happy with my job. In fact, I never felt happy at all. I didn't look forward to work. That's the bad sign. I had no idea what I was doing in work. That's the worst. I have been working for 4 months. I dare to say that I didn't like it then; I very much didn't like it now. I got through probation of 3 months instead of 6. It didn't take long for me to get confirmed because I was very capable of working. But I'm not liking it. I didn't really get along with my co-workers. Partly because I refuse to open my mouth to talk, in which case, it's my intention all along since day one. But mainly because I didn't get along with one of the co-workers who tried to be a bitch to me. She dislikes me a bit because I was a bitch to her too for valid reason. I could feel the tension between us, but I don't really care. My sole purpose is to work for living; Not buddy-buddy with them. That's what I'm telling myself whole time. I wish to transfer to other department. But I feel bad of doing it for the sake of kindness. I just got confirmed not long ago. It would make me a traitor for doing such transition. I guess I will have to be tolerant at such moment for that matter. 


  1. I wouldn't worry about transferring. If it will make you happy, go for it.

  2. The environment you can change but you also need to adjust you mind-set.
    Don't keep the unhappy emotion in your heart,find someone the chit chat a bit ,you will feel better.
    Don't just let yourself alone and keep silence.

  3. Well, you may want to talk about it with your HR about it, and see what he/she thinks about the current situation, at the end of the day, it is your life and the company's efficiency.

    In terms of mindset, to be honest I think since you've chosen to work there, being part of the company's community gives you a sense of belonging & showed that you're a team player. You don't need to go buddy-buddy with everyone, perhaps a few that you find comfortable with, others can be 君子之交淡如水. It makes working life all the better, don't you think?

    Stay positive and happy! Hopefully things at work will take a better turn! Hugs!
