It’s a give and take

I have been working for a publishing company for nearly two years. I have had some good times and also some very bad times. I have had the opportunity to travel and meet new people and I have also learned that people are deceiving and un-trustworthy. I gave my all to this job and once the give overweighed everything else it became draining emotionally and physically. After the work day ended and the night time would fall there was a rush of emotions that overpowered me and I felt sadness and anger. I would try so hard to remind myself that it is just a job, that I was blessed to have a job, and that whatever happened in the office did not matter. But when you are working in a negative, manipulative office for 37 hours a week it becomes very hard to escape the feelings I had. The negativity in the office wore me down and I started feeling like I had a ton of bricks on my back, and the demands along with the low appreciation started making me feel like I was worthless. After a lot of time thinking, praying, and endless amounts of support from Bear, I have decided that it is time to move on to the next chapter in my life. I quit my job. My last day is on Friday and although I am very nervous, I know that I am doing the right thing. I am starting to feel like the bricks are one by one being taken off of my back and I can breathe again. Halleluiah!!

P.S Special thanks to Bear who loves and supports me unconditionally.
