@Haruyou:  You honestly need to look at the bright side of things. Your SO has a job that he loves, that makes enough money to support you both – not many people can say ‘I love what I do’. So what if the job is warehousing, being a doctor/lawyer, being a garbage man, stockbroker  etc. If you can find a job you love, then life is so much easier. It seems that you expect more from your SO which isn’t fair. He does what he loves and knows how to do, and it sounds like he does very well at it. It’s nothing to be ashamed of – you should be proud.

My SO has been doing the same type of work and loves it. I couldn’t do what he does because it’s too physically demanding. He says he couldn’t do what I do because it’s too mentally demanding. Everybody has their own set of skills, and the key is to find employment that allows you to use and expand on those skills.

I used to complain about my work all the time, but I’ve changed tactic. Instead of complaining all the time, but now, if SO asks me how work was, I’ll say ‘XYZ was being difficult, but it’s over now!’. In this economy, I’m lucky to have a job that pays me well, that for the most part is pretty good. You have to look at the positives, not just negatives.
