Venting Time: Keep Out

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned...
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair...
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side...
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands...

I am a very patient person. But this day stressed me out so badly I think it drained the very last drop of my patience. I was a bit disappointed with the meeting last night, but due to the lack of better alternatives, I'm staying. It's tough getting out when feeling trapped.

I will be signing the new contract. There will be a new meeting by next week for more info about the *hopefully* better benefits. I just hope I can last as long as I need to.

Aside from that, I probably got the worse of them calls during my entire shift! That, plus the fact that I couldn't get any support from the people "up there" (yeah, those with higher positions than mine). I couldn't wait to get home. I was irritated and frustrated. Trust me, that's not a nice combination. I wanted to leave the floor and scream, but typical me, I bottled it up inside. So, I got this chest pain. I hope it's not angina though. Worse, I don't seem to have anyone to talk to, who can really listen to me and empathize at the same time. So, here I am blogging away... *sigh*

It's extremely frustrating when you feel like major decisions are in other people's hands, but what you may not realize is that this actually works in your favor right now. If those offers involve unfamiliar terms or tempting extras, you're better off having steadier heads working for you in strange territory. Go ahead and discuss your needs with your representatives frankly, have some faith and wait to see what they come back with.

Oh yeah, right! Blame it on the stars!

Thanks Jaz! Eventually, I know I'll feel better about this. Besides, when you're down, there's nowhere else to go but up, right? :)
