stand and deal



It seems like everybody has been ringing in the new year with so much happiness floating around them. But as of right now, for me, my head [[and my heart]] have experienced every emotion. I recently felt a lot of anger. Before that, there was a load of confusion, and countless amounts of sadness. Today, I'm actually feeling gratitude and hope that I am moving onto something much better. Last Wednesday, I got let go, or "fired" from my job. Something like this has NEVER happened to me! It was a complete shock. In part of my agreement, I was told I couldn't say anything negative or bash the company. I don't think I'd ever do that, but I will write on my blog...my side of what happened. Everything was absolutely perfect at my job. I loved it. I had an excellent relationship with my fellow employees. It seemed like my bosses appreciated all the work I did, and I felt needed. It was absolutely wonderful. I thanked God every single day..for that job. My boss hired one of his buddies from high school to be my "new boss." Ever since he began working there, let's just say things went down hill. Fast. For the sake of the company, all I will say is that I have never been so appalled with how someone has treated me, and then let me go for it ... because they can. So! I have never really had to search for work, but God is wanting me to do this. I am completely determined and excited to find something else that I love even more, with good pay, benefits, and a humble boss this time. I keep repeating to Mr. Schroeder, "I have NO regrets. The fact that I got FIRED leaves me feeling like I did something terribly wrong & that I should be sorry." He's given me the pep talk like 8 times now. I have nothing to be sorry for. The fact that I didn't lose my job for my job performance makes me know that I wouldn't have done one thing differently. In the long run, this job will be a huge & heavy load off of my shoulders, and that my self esteem will increase like mad! So bring it.

  5. This exact same thing happened to me. Exactly. I can't even tell you what a major blessing it was that it happened. At the time it was so awful. But I got a better job that paid so much better. I know you will too. You have a much more positive outlook than I did. I was a wreck

  6. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you! I hope if I'm ever faced with the same situation, that I can respond with such a calm demeanor, trusting that God is in control. He has big plans for you, keep your chin up!
