Why is this happening??? I am tired of being a statistic. I know that I am not alone in being a statistic, but I just don't want to be one anymore. Besides, I thought I was finished being one!!

I have been waiting for my life to take a better turn. At the end of May I started a job with State Farm and I thought, "Finally! My life is going to turn around!!" Well, I was wrong!! I was let go from that job today as the position was being terminated. I can't believe it, but in some ways I can. I really liked the job, liked what I was doing, so I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

It just makes me sad!! I thought I was going to get my life straight after only working part-time for so long, but that was just pulled out from under me.

I know I shouldn't complain, there are people who are a lot worse off than I am. But, right now I feel the need to complain because I am miserable, cranky and sad.

So, Happy Halloween everyone!!!

    Oh Patti, I'm so sorry to hear this! I'll pray something just as good or better comes your way soon! I always try to think God has a plan and well this is just part of it and now he's sending you to something better. I just hope that is what is happening and you find something quickly! I'll keep you in my prayers! God bless.

    That's awful news, Patti - so sorry! Maybe it will be a little piece of job experience that will allow you to get a bigger, better job very soon -- hope today is a better day! emoticon

    Damn Patti, that sucks!! I'm so sorry to hear this! I think maybe this was a step stone for you.... It was a way for you to know you can do something else other than teaching! I hope something else will come your way soon and life will be back on track! Then you can be another type of statistic! Sorry! Hugs, Melissa

    Sorry to hear that, Patti. I've lost jobs I like, too. It sucks! I hope things turn around for you soon. Go ahead and vent, but try not to let it get you down. Like you said; some have it worse. emoticon
