Sometimes The Right Decisions Aren't the Easiest Ones - Pt. 1
This week I’ve been struggling... and I wanted to share with you my heart.
I’ve been in a place of discontent FOR MONTHS and it’s officially turned into anger.
So I’ve been at my job for over 2 years, which I know isn’t a long time. But it’s a long time to be taken for granted and used & abused.
Let me explain.
For months (4) I filled in as a supervisor and did manager tasks while still only making minimum wage. The official supervisor position was finally given to me and 2 months later my assistant manager quit, and I was again stuck picking up the slack. It was a lot.
Honestly too much while being a full time student.
But I stayed because i kept telling myself “it’ll get better. I have a raise coming up.”
But I didn’t get the raise. And not because I didn’t deserve it.
THAT WAS IT.
The moment anger started filling my heart.
“But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart.”
That’s exactly what was happening in my life. I was lashing out treating the people I love the most so terribly! I’m talking literal childlike temper tantrums.
I blamed my work environment. That was my excuse. How could they do this to me? I deserved to be treated better!
But heres the truth: They don’t have to care. They don’t have to have my best interests at heart.
BUT I DO. It’s up to me to make sure I’m being treated right and that I’m being valued for the work I am doing.
Something I’m learning is that the right decisions aren’t alway the easy ones. Sometimes the right decision is hard and scary because it takes me out of my comfort zone.
