I just came into a realization that I have outgrown my job and the people I work with. Not to sound narcisisstic or what have you. But, there comes a time that when you feel like you hear the same fucking problems from your co workers, it just makes you say, "Damn can you just move on?
People love to talk about themselves, their frustrations, their anger. Yet, when you ask them what they have done about it. They look at you, in a blank stare and say " Well, nothing. I have no choice..... I'm stuck....I have a lot on my plate.....I'm this and I'm that"!
I don't get it when people say they don't have a choice. We all have choices. It is a basic human function. We are faced with decision making everyday. It could be as easy as choosing to eat that cookie or which path in life should you take.
It is a matter of making the one that will bring you the greatest reward or your downfall. The risks and rewards. It is a matter of taking the responsibility and accountability if choices made does not go well.
Maybe we are hard wired to fear rejection, failure, and disappointment. But isn't that how we learn our greatest lessons in life? Learning from our mistakes? That's how we learn how to overcome fear. Make us more of be in control of how we react to things around us and not the other way around.
With this said, when I came into a conclusion that I have outgrown my work and its surroundings, I have made a conscious decision to change my job. I am not saying that the people around me is the main reason why I decided to do it. They helped.
I am in a process of acquiring this new job that I really think will bring me great rewards. It fell on my lap like an answer from the higher being. A blessing not to be taken for granted. I'm hoping I get it so I can start a new adventure in life and career. My family is supportive and we are excited about it.
This change is part of my evolution.
If you are reading this post up to this point, thank you. Because I am guilty of paying attention to the negativity of people around me.
But, I would like to take this opportunity to say that there's always a choice. Please don't play the victim card. You always have the opportunity to change your life. The question becomes....are you ready for that change?"
“In the end that was the choice you made, and it doesn't matter how hard it was to make it. It matters that you did.”
