It's not self-respect that women have (seriously bro lol), it's the beta bucks paying all the bills at home that they can always fall back on. Hell if I have a slave at home picking up all the financial burden I wouldn't have any qualm quitting a job either. On the opposite end, men, especially married men, just can't quit like that, they have mouths to feed.

I was referring more to single men. I understand married men don't have those same liberties. And, I only used "self-respect" as a placeholder for lack of a better term. I only meant that they have the audacity to leave a situation quickly while most men often have trouble doing so. Yes, I am referring to monkey branching (somewhat), however; I'm simply proposing that men do the same in looking for something better the moment they realize they are no longer benefitting from a situation.

I'm going to give you some advice that I thi8nk is valuable. You need to know what you're actually worth, as opposed to pure ego. Self awareness is key here. What are you good at? What level is that ability at in relation to people who are in the job market right now making money off of that human capital? Can you even compete? Do you even have the human capital required in what you're "good" at in your opinion to do the job at a high enough level to do it as well, or better than people who are already out there doing it?

This is where self awareness is key. It's not easy to know oneself. Bias almost always creeps in, making it difficult to accurately evaluate ones actual value in an objective sense, but it's required if you're going to get decent paying jobs. You need to know where your skills lie, and if those skills can be translated into actual wealth creation. This means you need to compare yourself to others. Not something socialists like to do, generally speaking, and it seems to be something young people these days also are not wild about. That being objective truth, and an accurate evaluation of what you're worth based upon said truth.

Sit down, and make a list of all of what you think you're skills are. Then brain storm things that you believe require those skills, either in part, on in total. Then ask yourself if you could realistically see yourself doing that job long term. Then ask yourself if you are actually skilled enough to do said job, or not. If not, then at least you know what you have to work on.

Most everyone is good at something. Be it digging ditches, finance, or a plethora of things in between. What you have to do is isolate what you're good at, and figure out if that skill or skills are currently being used in the labor market to create wealth. If the answer is yes, then you need too determine what level you are currently at. If the answer is no, well it's not no. There's always some skill, some ability that someone has that is applied in some position out there, be it to a large degree, or a small on. If that's the case then you might have some work to do to up your game, and increase your human capitol based upon how high your skill level is in whatever you are actually good at, and how much that skill is applied in said position.

It all comes down to being self aware, and also aware of how objective reality works. If you can accurate assess your abilities, and where those abilities fit into the labor market than you'll be ahead of most people out there. The most successful people know themselves quite well, and they know where they skills are most needed, and valued, if at all.

Hope that helps. Take care.
