So, my week started off pretty craptastic. First official day on the floor and I dropped 3 calls. Got home and had family issues. Got to work on Tuesday and found I was in ACW all night. Handle time nightmare. But I made the promise it would be better. And it was. Wednesday got free lunch at work. Today, I have kittens in my ceiling and my smoke detector fell on my head after I yelled at it that i was cooking.
So, it’s been a crazy week. And yet, it’s been so good. Guys, I love my job. Like I straight love my job. I didn’t think I would. I thought it was gonna be a just till the end of the year kinda gig. But I actually dig it. Idk if I’m doing anything right. But, I’ll learn.
Have all the calls been sunshine and roses? Hell no. I got called a fucking bitch the other day because the guy put in wrong information. Oh well. I know I’m a bitch. Tell me something I don’t know about me. I didn’t let it get me down. I didn’t let it get to me. Which for me is huge.
So, who cares? Me. And apparently you, cuz you’re reading this.
The point is, don’t let past experience rule your future or even your present. People change. Situations change. I’m not the same person I was at Chase. I’m more confident and stronger. And people being mean to me is nothing. Strangers being hateful is nothing compared to 13 years in a relationship with a malignant narcisstic partner. I survived that. I can handle 10 minutes of being told I’m a piece of garbage.
Because at the end of the day, I know the truth. I have a good man who loves me. Three kids who tolerate me. And 3 books that I’ve written and published. Not many people can say that.
So, here’s to you. The survivors. The strugglers. The fighters. And the ones about to give up. Keep fighting. Always keep fighting because you are not alone. You have come so far. And you have so much farther to go.
Don’t stop. Don’t quit. You got this.
And when all else fails, wine.
