I have seen doctors, teachers, office workers and almost everyone I met in my life , they hated their jobs

Not enough variety and it can become mundane. Not everyone feels this way, my dad loves his job and he's been doing it for over 30 years. Also if people go into certain careers for the wrong reasons, and they don't love what they do, they'll realize money isn't everything and hate it.1

I suspect that even if you love the notion of the line of work that you're going into, having to do it for 8 hours, each and every day, should be jading even to those with the strongest wills.
Probably the lack of independence and scope for self expression, also. You constantly have to have a professional face on, your very ability to shelter, feed and clothe your family depend on it! So you can't really speak your mind (say something averse to the party line, and you're... finished), there's usually horrible rigid bureaucratic structures in place; so for 8 hours a day, you have your public face on, and frankly, it's exhausting and unnatural.
And what can we say about teaching? Every one I've spoken to hates the bureaucracy, over-scrutiny and constant testing. It's surely a profession that has lost its essence, for both parties. Can you imagine a situation in which people went into education to actually learn and become interested in the world, to have their horizons expanded; rather than for it to be a mechanistic and process based affair, where the only raison d'etre for learning is to out-compete your peers, and hopefully be lucky enough to get on the housing ladder before 30.
Of course, it's important to foster appreciation. We're certainly well off compared to many, in the Western world. But imagine how rich things could be (not just materially), if we got our priorities straight, and questioned, truly questioned, why on earth we are doing what we are doing for the entirety of our waking lives.1
