Just Need to Make It Through Today

Friday, April 12, 2013

My parents did the best they could to raise me right. I have manners (whether or not I choose to use them) and try to be considerate of others. Sometimes, despite my best efforts, being thoughtful is so ingrained in me it brings me stress. Not major stress that nags on for a long time, but short term stress that makes me overthink something or concern myself with something I can't control for a day or 2 and then I wisely let it go.

Case in point: This afternoon I am giving notice of my resignation from my job. I have worked here nearly 2 and 1/2 years. That's not a super long time but long enough to feel some kind of obligation to handle this in the best way possible since my employers will be caught probably completely unaware and they have mostly been very good to work for. I am going to do it at the end of the day so there's no weirdness to deal with as they process the information.
Unfortunately, since I feel this obligation to them I am SO dreading doing this. I am BEYOND certain it's what I want and what's best for my family, I just hate to disappoint my bosses. Let me tell you, I CANNOT wait to be done here. It's just the hard part of telling them nicely that it's over. I wrote a letter of resignation to be official about it and, in case I stumble over my words, it will clearly state what needs to be said. I just want this part to be over. 3 more hours until I tell them...time to be done with my break and get back to work.

    That was good thinking. I gave mine at the beginning of the day and it was awkward.
