I’ll start off with a little background. My bf had a job about a year ago that required him to 12+ hours every night.
Because of that job his mental health spiralled down to the point I was scared of him possibly hurting himself. It put a huge strain on our relationship as well as he was either at work, sleeping, or I was at work.
He ended up quitting that job and got a new one. The new job let a lot of employees go including him in February. Since he has only applied for jobs like the one I described at the beginning of this post. I have especially said that if they expect you to work more than 40 hours a week then it’s a no.
He promised me that he would decline a job if they asked that of him. As of yesterday, I found out he got a job offer to work that same shift as he did a year ago….
He took it. I am absolutely pissed and I told him exactly what I thought about it when he told me and haven’t talked to him since. My friends keep on saying that giving him the silent treatment will only make things worse and that I’m being over dramatic over a job.
I know it’s a job but if it affects him mentally it is going to affect me.
