Love ’em or Leave ’em?
I had just written this:
Another week has passed by.
With showers of rain, mist, a few glimpses of sunshine.
That could be said about my thoughts too.
I have been ready to resign from this job at least three times a day.
I have felt completely lost in a haze of doubt and questions about my choices and options.
But I have also tried to look at the bright side of things:
– All the fresh, ice-cold water you can drink, right on tap?
– Two wonderful people living under my roof, the blessings of new friendship?
– The experience of living, learning (hard way or not) about myself and others?
Yes, so this job is not what I had expected and it has to do with the management.
Their personal issues affect the attitude of their staff and create a negative feeling within the walls.
There are too many details that I won’t go into now, but basically I’ve gotten yelled at every day.
For things I didn’t know I could possibly do wrong.
(one of the cleaning ladies said it right:
“Helen, don’t worry. Had you done it the other way it would have been wrong anyway”)
A decision needs to be made within the next couple of days.
Stay or Leave?
When I received this:
Actually, Helen, it’s easier to accept others, than to change them.
It’s wiser to understand them, than to get angry.
And most of the time, it’s more fun to love ’em, than to leave ’em.
Coincidence or not, the power of the Universe works in various ways!
