I've been with BF for 3.5 years. The first year he lost his job and was unemployed. He got this job he's at and ever since I have had to talk him down from quitting more times than I can count. He doesn't really have a lot of drive when it comes to a career. He beats himself up for never going to college and just "getting by" as he says. It's hard for me to relate. While I may grow mentally bored with work, I have made a career path for myself, have a masters degree, and have worked at the same company for ten years. I try to be supportive and tell him if he's unhappy then start looking for something else, but he never looks and just sucks it up for a while before the whole cycle begins again when he's on the verge of quitting. I will look for jobs for him occasionally, but they are never what he wants or what he expects to be paid. Can anyone else relate?? I want him to be happy with what he does, more so than the money he makes. It stresses me out when he's stressed out. I don't show it though, but it scares me.
