on joy stealers…


I know it probably wasn’t the smartest decision to make without a plan B but I didn’t have the fighting power anymore. I’ve read about jobs that take more from you than add to you. At the time I read that, I though it was not possible, one could always control and know how to deal with work! But I found myself in such a situation. The worst part is that I was learning so much from that particular job but my soul was not at peace. I couldn’t remember the last time I slept for 8 hours. And I value a good night’s sleep! On a good day, I slept 4 hours and I considered it a great night if I didn’t wake up in a sweat, my heart pounding with work on my mind. I was always in a panic and I even started to doubt myself, doubt my capabilities and believe that the problem was with me. I spoke to a lot of people about how I felt and how my health was being compromised by this job and out of all my mentors, only 1 told me to leave the job if it was really that bad. But that was 1 voice of reason out of so many so naturally I went with the majority and stuck it out for a long time – too long. I mean, I was not a quitter and I was strong! Besides who just walks away from such a great opportunity.  I finally got the courage to do what was right for me! I’m grateful for the opportunity I had, I’m grateful for everything I learned in that time but it was time to move on. And looking back 1 year later, I don’t regret my decision. From here  on out, it’s onwards and upwards!
