Have you ever felt like you were selling your soul ?

    Have any of you ever been in a situation in life where you bascially felt like you were selling your soul to accomplish something? It's kind of like you are at the complete mercy of another individual or institution for you to reach the end result of your objective and no matter how uncomfortable or unhappy you were with the situation you had to endure what ever was set before you?.It is a humbling expirence to say the least.
  2. I can certainly appreciate that feeling. Of course I have a fairly bleak view of people with power (politicians and corporations) to start with so I feel that a lot. Just by participating in society. I hope you can find your way through your particular situation.

    sounds like your'e having a tough time yourself ...
    i hope everything works out for you .

    sometimes it's best to walk away from situations that make you feel like that ,
    even if alot of money is involved .

    you know what they say , " MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL ..."

    Peace ,

    Am currently in that sort of situation.

    Am pretty much pegging a crap load on a job offer coming through but do have one or two other backup plans but nothing that really seems hugely viable. And to top it all off the people are really taking their time about getting back to me; very un-nerving.

    As for the whole soul selling thing, that comes in with the fact that my fiance is in another country and this job would potentially mean that I would see her a lot sooner.

    Sounds like somebody just got a day job!
  7. I just gave up on IT support and went to school to learn how to build guitars. Now I have to get one more crappy "pay the bills job" to get set up so I can take a shot at being self employed. No longer do I want to work overtime and put up with company politics. I'm tired of headcount being cut while the work load doubles for the same pay rate so others can continue to buy 2 million dollar homes. I'd rather work twice as hard to be able to retire at 75 and be my own dog.

    That being said, I have submitted a hundred resumes for customer service, tech support and what not without one email or call back. I feel ya.

    Yes. Well maybe this is going to be your lucky week. I'm home this week so I hope it is. Matt said maybe this week.

    Is that what your talking about, selling your soul? a situation you have to endure?
