Would your much younger self be proud of you now?

Mine would be disappointed.

I’m hoping this is the right place for this and I don’t like asking complete strangers for guidance but here I am.

I’m working as an agency worker doing a 3 shift rotation and that itself is destroying me. I’ve pushed for 4 – 5 openings at my workplace and ended up being the same disappointing result my latest was today, sadly being second choice out of possibly 20 – 25 people which sounds great but I see that as the first loser. (**my kinda mindset**)

The wage is quite good for what I do, but I don’t get to see it due to my partner looking after our two children and how the benefit system works. (**I earn more; she’s given less**) Making us constantly counting the pennies.

I want to do more, learn more earn a decent living but I feel trapped and tired and the progression I’m wanting isn’t happening.

Maybe further education, but I really don’t know where to start and with being the only earner I’m scared to even take the leap.

I’ve written this in my mobile, please excuse any typos.
I’d love to hear from everyone, possibly people who’ve escaped this depressing loop themselves.

Thanks in Advance.
