I have an opportunity to make more money. It would solve a lot of problems. I could pay my bills, pay rent, and afford Christmas presents. However, I would be working on Christmas, Thanksgiving, and all nights and weekends.
In my gut I know this is not what I want. But in my mind I keep seeing all the things I could afford to do and buy. Especially with the holidays around the corner. I want to be able to go apple picking, I want to be able to make crafts and sit by the fire, I want to be able to afford to get everyone a present. But to what expense.
I have a bad feeling about it. But I know it would help. It would allow me to save money. I wouldn’t live pay check to pay check. But my sanity would suffer. My dignity would be gone. I would have no pride in where I worked.
I would be doing it for the money.
Everyone tells you not to do that. Never do something just for the money. They also say listen to your gut. Well…..
What do I do?
Take the risk and make more money for a while or suffer tell I find a better opportunity?
I am having a panic attack thinking about it.
I have days where I can be positive and determined to make the most of the opportunity. But other days I cry because it is not what I want to do.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated……
