This author gives a number of suggestions for obtaining peace for oneself in the midst of a lousy job situation. The one thing I’d say differently: once you’ve made up your mind that “This can’t go on,” don’t just make a plan and start saving up money. Instead, immediately begin searching for your next job. Actual searching; do it.
