Why do I just hate my corporate job?

3 min readAug 8, 2022

It’s not a typical 9 to 5 job that I am talking about. But it is about a good-paying job, that has an awesome work-life balance as well.

But still, there is something missing in my life that is bothering me these days.

Life as a corporate leader is always an easy affair as long as you know what you have to do. There are several people who like you or hate you in the corporate structure and there is always politics going on, no matter how much you want to be away from one, you will get involved for pro or con.

Having said that, life in the corporate world at a higher position is chill.

You don't have deadlines, but you keep some for your juniors. You don't have to attend all the meetings. You even don't have to be on time for any meeting.

You wake up late in the morning, take your time to exercise, have a great breakfast, get your kids ready, kiss your other half goodbye for their work and then start your routine in peace.

You have a handsome salary and you don't have to buy anything major, therefore you start your work like every other day.

But then, sometimes there is a void that keeps you bothered every single time you sit and work.

I don't know about you guys, but I have started missing my wife, who is obviously going to come by evening after her work.

I just don’t want to spend time working. This is so tiring because you are always tagged to something that you don't want to work on.

Previously I was handling a client who was really tough to understand, but I hailed in that. On the other hand, today also, I have a client that is just not awesome and I have to work hard to understand his requirements, which is not that awesome.

But this cant is the reason that I am unhappy because it is something that I have dealt with before also and I believe everyone deals with these kinds of situations in his or her life — corporate life.

Having said that, maybe it is because of the fact that I am not able to spend time with my family and enjoy little moments.

Or maybe this is because I know I have great potential to create passive income streams, but I am not able to do so, because of some reasons.

Well, I think this is a mix of both issues.

I am feeling lost and even having a good routine, having exercise, I am still not able to focus on my work.

I feel like quitting and starting my own, which will obviously be a kick-ass idea but still before thinking of doing that I will have to ensure that I have the ability to make both ends meet.

Do you feel something like this in your life? Let me know in the comments …
