I was inspired to write this post, after seeing Therapy Bits post here. So do check out and read her post too.
Hope, is what has kept me going over the years, when trying to get out of a horrible work place, that was once nice to work for.
For years applying for endless jobs, mostly cleaning jobs and with only hearing back from a very small few, without hope, I would not have been able to continue.
The last two to three years were very hard.
Getting up most days was hard.
Being at work that crushed every part of me, was hard.
I wondered when and if I would ever get my break.
I finally got that break and before last Christmas my notice went in and I left the job that destroyed my soul.
I started the new job beginning of this year. My soul is now replenished and I am now back to my old-self, or should I say, a new better self, because of my confidence growing and being very happy in my job. A job that I feel respects me and appreciates me. Most of all, to be spoken to, as I would expect to be treated. Not to be spoken down to and treated like crap, as my old place treated me in the last few years.
Being in this lovely environment, where I feel part of a team has helped me to grow.
There may be readers here who feel trapped in their job and not hearing anything back from their job applications. I hope this post gives you hope, that things will turn round for you.
My other hope is to live in Mansfield, closer to my workplace, but this will also be a fresh start for me.
I am on the council list and I know there will be a long wait, unless I am extremely lucky with one of my bids, due to a low number of people wanting the property, but until then, I look privately also.
Even if I get a private one first, I will hope that one day I am in a council property.
If a private property comes first, I hope that it’s one that can offer long-term. As I mentioned in a recent post about viewing a flat, this is one that does offer long-term.
What ever you hope for, don’t give up.
