Things I learned about myself today

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

I value honesty and loyalty above everything else. I found out that my bosses have been lying about his having a serious illness. It was all a lie. I am not going to go into what is really going on but I am furious and I am disgusted someone would make up a story and make people worry about them and play our sympathy. She sat in meetings and cried and it was all a lie. I can forgive people for mistakes but once I don't trust them anymore I can never get it back. It is just how I am wired. I am putting all my effort into helping my friend get his business going. I do think he is an honest person and even if I have to get a second job this will be a better thing for me.
I also learned that as much as I enjoy sharing things with people on SP it has its purpose and I was expecting too much. I need to use my other blog to share my love of food and other interests in my life. The commonality we all have here is weight loss. What we share is a good thing. I need to find another outlet for my writing as well.
The last thing I learned today is that I am good at what I do professionally. I had a meeting with potential clients, some I had worked with before, and they said very nice things about my work ethic and talents. It made me think about how I let fear keep me working for other people and I need to take the leap and really focus on some personal goals in my life. I can not let fear hold me back. It is not normal or healthy to be so upset about going to work that you choke on bile every single Sunday night from the stress. This is my time.

    Thank you for this. It's right where I am today, too. I let fear keep me from taking steps... (even little ones!)

Take "the leap and really focus on some personal goals in my life. I can not let fear hold me back. . . . This is my time."

This is our time! Green Lights and Brava! for hearing all the real good true feedback about YOU!

    There must be something seriously wrong with your boss's life if she's going to lie about being sick to cover up the real issues. Wow. That's just insane!

Good luck with your endeavors. Please share the address for your food blog on my sparkpage so I can add you to my following list.

    This is your time Ash. These are some amazing things you learned this week, and I agree with you 100%. I am the same, once I no longer trust someone it is over. You deserve so much better, a better place to grow and learn and take charge and be the superstar that you are. I hope everything works out for you and that these next few months, though challenging, are going to be rewarding! Love you! Hugs.

    Wow. I can't believe someone would just make up a serious illness! What kind of lousy person do you have to be to intentionally manipulate people's emotions in that way! I hope you won't have to work for them for much longer. You deserve better!

    Wow. That is just sad. I could see a co-worker lying, but a BOSS, just horrific. People are so shady and wanting attention these days. I'm glad things are going better for you. Just the way you talk, I see that you have some amazing skills, I hope things look up for you work wise!
