Recently, I had to wrestle with a decision about moving on. And to leave or not to leave was a tough one for me, but I did finally make a decision to leave my current job and return to a former employer. Like every other decision in my life, I had to wrestle with it. I looked at the pros and cons. I thought about what I would loose and gain at each employer. I thought about the people at each employer. I talked to my friends about what I needed to do. And then I made a decision.
I had a sense of relief when I finally gave my two week notice. I was relieved that the decision was made. I was relieved that many of the negative experiences at that job would be over. I was glad I will be going back to a larger paycheck. Hurray! But I was sad because I really do like most of the people I work with.
One of my co-workers was flat out rude to me, but then she is always like that. One of the ladies I work with stated that she didn’t like how she talked to me. And I told her she is mad because I got another job. And she replied you’re right.
Like everything in life, I learned a few lessons while I was at this job. Some of the lessons were easy. And some of the lessons like the lessons on forgiveness were extremely difficult. I can honestly say that I am a better person for working there, but I am also relieved that the experience is over. And I am excited to move on to another chapter in my work life.
