This long road of anxiety/depression the last 2 years has enabled me to learn a LOT about myself. One of the things that I am really truly starting to realize is, I do not believe that I am a white collar kind of guy. I sit behind the desk all day and just daydream and think of a million different things that I could be doing, and don't really care about exactly what I am doing (bank teller). It seems absolutely pointless, although I know the job is necessary. I just want to get started in a career in which I will actually be happy and financially happy as well. This isn't it.
So what then? I have no experience in construction or in any kind of trades really. My work experience in the past is working in deli's, working for my fathers food manufacturing company, a short stint at a vitamin selling company, and now working in the bank. I know a lot of these jobs don't really make sense with one another, I guess it was just because I was looking to so desperatley get out of my family business. But now I'm realizing that, although that still isn't a good fit (I don't think it is yet anyways), I still think that I am more or less that type of guy. The busy, stay moving, active type of job. Not this sit around and ponder life while at work and stare out the window kind of guy.
I guess my question for this post would be does anyone have any experience with union type jobs? Or construction jobs? I'm thinking that something like that in which I would be active and busy and feeling like I'm actually learning something useful (I could maybe down the road start a side business on small construction jobs or something). It frustrates me that now I have this job in which I make no money, and I have no skills or trades in which I could make money on the side on the weekends or something. Anyone who has any advice or tips on how I would maybe get started in a trade type job or any way to maybe started on a productive career would be appreciated :)
Been getting extremely frustrated lately over my financial situation and how badly I hate my job currently. I think about quitting everyday and I know it's just a matter of time before I just leave the sitting behind the desk bank job in the past.
