Sometimes you just have to do what’s best for you

I don’t know why but I have never been one to be scared of just picking up , cutting ties and moving on. At times I am sure it comes off as harsh but I think it’s so important that you don’t feel guilty about getting out of a bad situation and taking care of yourself.Weather its in a relationship that’s become toxic or a job where your efforts are simply not appreciated. There comes a time when enough is enough and you just have to let go and move on.

This summer I finally realised that I was not in a healthy place at work. Within a year I had already maxed out all areas of growth as I had already attained the highest position possible with no room to grow. Not to mention to add insult to injury I have busted my ass (for lack of a better word), going above and beyond, working for a Man that could careless, with not even the decency and respect to be straight forward and honest  and respectful with me and the other workers. And I ask my self why make money for someone who doesn’t even want to pay you what your worth?

All though I’ve met some amazing people working where I did, I had to do what would be best for me in the long run. Although I know there are people I am going to miss, I’ll still get to see them and hang out, but I’m so happy that I put my sanity first. It’s so important that we believe in ourselves and our self-worth and do not settle for anything less than what you deserve.

At the end of the day, If your going to put your time and energy into a job, do it for a company that recognises that and will pay for your efforts. Do not sell yourself short, it’s work and as much as employers think employees are easy to replace, so are employers. I was blessed with an amazing opportunity to work for a company that recognises hard work and has no problem doing their part and paying for it so I’m moving on.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what your circumstances are, the beauty of life is that all you have to do everyday is wake up and work at making yourself better. That intern makes your life better and that’s what we should all be working our hardest towards. Making the best of what we have, striving for whatever it is we want and not settling for anything less.
