WORK DELIMMA: HIGH PAY LJ JOB OR LOW PAY HAPPY JOB

Work delimma

That high paying job or a job that is survivable but happy.

Back story , I’ve quit my comfortable 5k job last year to chase my dream job as I was unhappy . I’ve been in and out of depression and questioning about life throughout my life. I’m what you call mentally weak there is a risk of me dying if I’m under too high stress. Hence I decided to call it quits and change to a job I’ve always be scared to do as I’ll be considered as a low pay worker but it’s my dream job.

I use to get migraine on a daily basic and been eating panadol as though its candy everyday just so I can work my job and earn that dream pay. But now although I physically have to work harder I’m happy. Much much happier I stop taking panadol as there wasn’t a need to anymore. And the only time I have to medicate myself was when I force myself to work even though I was sick which took a toll on my body. But still I was happy.

Problem there is the pay is survivable only. Something that can pay my bills, with some small savings but nothing lavishing like my bi yearly vacations. And I’m not sure if my child would appreciate that in the near future knowing that I’m not giving my everything for a better life to them.

My friends and family have been waving jobs with that comfortable pay in my face every now and then and of course I’m tempted by the money and opportunity that it will bring. But do I really want to trade my life for money???? I mean..isn’t that what everyone is doing ?

If you’re in my position would u choose a high paying but unhappy job or a survivable paying but happy job ?

In terms of benefits of course the corporate job would be better.
