I have to take care of myself.

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

I just read a very good blog today about fighting the negative influences. They author described realizing it was a blessing in disguise to having landed what he thought was a perfect job only to find out the expections of those inchange was not as he imagined or planned for. Having been let go as a "business decision" along with 90% of other workers in a job I loved dearly, my attitude toward work changed from putting everything I was into work to putting everything I chose to put in. Like the company that decided to close a service and let the whole group of dedicated employees go, I can choose as objectively to preserve myself. Finding myself in a job in a company that is not fit for my needs and interests no longer overwhelms me or plays on my self esteem. I will give all I have to a company that shares similar values and mission. But I also am too aware that loyalty, once thought so precious a commodity to me, seems to have little weight in the business world these days. Therefore, I can be loyal to myself. Take care of myself. I am a very good employee, but one who recognizes that either side can pull the plug on the relationship if our needs and expectations are not met.
