Yeah!! At crossroads again. Wondering if it is all me and I must not blame circumstances any more?
Life has pretty much been work- home and back to work – meaning there has been no life really!! I understand it is the scenario for many. Point is, I don’t want it to be. For a person who has now come to terms that work is all I would have in life, I understand that it is a bit of an anomaly to say I want something more. Oh boy!! Is my reaction when I read that statement.
I am irritated that people don’t even stand up to wanting to have a life outside of work. I don’t like it that if we do speak up, one becomes an outcast. Since when did work become unwritten bond to slavery? Why is it taken for granted that we would be at the beck & call of leads at work?! If one refuses, it is taken as being inflexible!!
Same people who speak of individual rights, fair play, team (and all other buzzwords you can think of) are those who just don’t bother to adhere to those.
Been following conversations of loyalty to companies. Yes, comes into play when the company is good to an employee.
Anyways after all the random rumination in the post ( going in circles now), I am wondering if I must continue at my current position. Work has become everything to me ( realising that is all I will have in the coming years). I don’t know if I would land another job. So here I am at yet another crossroad. Do I quit ?( heart tells me I must – enough is enough). Do I stay on & endure crap? ( mind says may be wise since I have no other offer & no sign of one).
Heart over mind or vice versa?! I am told to get an offer and then quit by a good friend of mine. Told him that the line of job offers is as solid as the line of supposed suitors for me ( he does keep asking me to find a person too)!!
I am just really tired of this among many other things. With my health having gone for a toss, my trust factor at its all time low, self confidence non-existent…. Wondering if it is the end of the road ?! Wishing it is. May be I am just not cut out for anything!!
I really have no clue! Am confused, depressed, demotivated, lonely and lost!
Days I feel like Calvin – everyday ( thanks to google image search 🙂 )
One thought on “Crossroads – again?”
Life brings all unexpected things, while we are there to play a part of it. They say HE manages while we play our roles.
Point isn’t why we at the crossroads, it should be what’s next for me and what should I do.
Unexpected…..friend confirms about his engagement. …. are you happy?….next are you planning for a gift, a dress to wear, etc….not that you are loosing a friend, who may / may not actually spend the same time and give you that importance anymore.
We should belive that there are both controllable and uncontrollable things/events that occur….our part is to take it in the right stride and do our bit (on controllable events) and believe things will fall in place on uncontrollable events (which at times dont fall in line)… thats where we are crossroads.
Work on being positive and hope for the best…..afterall world Lives on Hope!
