Working

Hi guys, I’ve been reading off this forum for a while and finally decided to make an account (now that I’m 18).

 

Anyways, I’m in kind of a sucky situation because I’ve been in a relationship for 2... 3ish? years now, but he doesn’t seem to get why I’m so childish even though I keep explaining that it helps me and I don’t have anyone else to be myself around. He told me today that he expects me to work if we end up staying together and getting married but he knows that I’m not ready for working. I’m freaked out, and I guess my question is:

 

What kind of jobs would want a socially awkward child?

I think maybe something that doesn’t require interacting with customers ie stockers, chefs, busboy, etc. Ornmaybe you could try to work with kids if it’s adults that make you feel uncomfortable.

I currently work with kids, preschool age, but I would also note that you still need to interact with adults in this settings too. Not a bad choice of work though!

A lot of Littles have jobs, actually. Although I’m sure you’re not alone in feeling awkward about it. I didn’t get a job until I was 19 (almost 20) because I felt like I wasn’t ready either. You can probably tell him that you’ll look around, but he shouldn’t pressure you to do something that you know you’re not ready for. I don’t know if everyone will agree with that-that I think it’s okay not to join the work force inmediately-but it’s my true thoughts and I think you should think about your mental health as well.

 

I’m actually a nanny, and I got the job because I was recommended by my cousin. I only work part time (because I’m in school) and I really love it. I’m so glad I waited to find a job I could enjoy instead of rushing and getting a job that I dreaded going to. I love working with the kids and my boss (their mom) is home most of the time and is super nice. I feel like I’m just babysitting, which I’ve been doing since I was like 10. And I get to play with toys and make kids laugh!

 

You’ll find a job that you can like! I’m just a kid, too, and it can be scary, but not impossible. Play your strengths! Like talking to people? Customer service. Good at mental math? Bank teller(?). Good swimmer? Lifeguard.

 

Just because you’re a kid at heart doesn’t mean you aren’t capable of doing things everybody else can :) I believe you can do whatever you set your mind to! Just do what makes you happy.

What kind of things do you enjoy? I think the key to happiness on the work front is finding something that you have a passion for. And of course theres education too.

 

It's important to be self sufficient regardless of if your little, its not your daddy/care givers job to provide for you finacially etc. Plus having a good career will be a great achievement in your own right.

 

I was thinking what about animals I wish Id gone into animal care.

First off, you're not a child.  Well, I get that you're only 18 (I mean, you are young) and being grown up can be scary, but you need to start viewing yourself as an adult (you are legally an adult).  This is a great gift that he's giving you.  The ability to be independent and make your own income is so important! <3 Indeed.com is a great place to search for jobs in your area.  Just leave the "what" box blank (because you don't know exactly what type of job you're looking for at the moment) and type in your city and state in the "where" box.  Look through the jobs and see what's out there and what might interest you. I wish you luck!  Remember, you can do this!

Though I am a little, that doesn't have any effect on my job. In the end I'm still an adult (and work to be a fully functioning one).

 

I work in property management.

I'm a Social Worker :D I mostly work with Addictions and women coming out of the sex trade. They seem to appreciate the beanie babies, pastels and lots of stuff to fidget with on my desk. 

 

You can do pretty much any job you are qualified for - Just have to learn to hide the Little in you just enough for it to seem like you're just fun/quirky.
