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.⁣

(to be cont....)
