You know, I’ve had a job since I was 14 years old.
When I turned 14, my mom thought it was very important that I learn to take care of myself and never depend on a man so she signed me up for a summer work program (I was too young for a “real” job) at UCI Medical Center and I’ve been working ever since.
I’ve never quit a job before, unless it was to move to another job that was better for me. I’ve never even been unemployed longer than a month.
Today was the first time in my life that I was ever tempted to quit, with no backup plan. Just walk out the door. I guess it would happen sooner or later?
I mean jeez, I’ve never even been fired before.
I didn’t do it. Theres always a better way, right? Bridges can’t be burnt blah blah blah.
I am going to try and make this work, I guess. Although part of me wishes I would have been brave enough to do it. :(
It’s a weird thing when you’ve been taught all your life about loyalty and sticking it out but the world today is all about finding something you’re happy doing and not allowing yourself to be taken advantage of. I have to figure it out still, I guess.
