Deer User, It is not necessary that everyone should be happy when he engage in the new job. Some people feel happy and full of enthusiasm, others feel exactly like you feel unhappy and depressed. This might because everybody come with some dreams and expectations in his head. Anyway, I believe you can help yourself by understanding yourself well, I mean you should sit with yourself and answer some crucial questions e.g. what I want? Is this the suitable job I want? What are the advantages and what are the disadvantages of this job? Why I feel like this? Do I have another better alternative or better option? In general, take your time, go to your work on time, and try to do your assigned tasks in the most appropriate way. You can talk with your colleagues in the work and share them with the work duties and responsibilities. Don’t be hurry to judge this work or to leave it because you can’t guarantee that you will find a suitable job immediately, or you might have the same feeling.  I suggest you to have a look at the positive and strong points of the work not only to the weak points. Lastly, you can consult trustworthy people in your surrounding environment to guide you and help you to overcome this crisis. Moreover, you can consult an online therapist for more instructions and interventions. Take Care
