What God won't ask you on the last day...


I'm ashamed to admit I did compromise my character in the last job I held. At the time I felt I had no choice but we all have choices. I guess that's why I wasn't upset when they laid me off. During the eleven months I was there I had to work with dishonest, disloyal, unfriendly, and unfair people. People who didn't say hi or smile a welcome unless I made the effort first.

It was difficult lowering my work ethics working for these people. At times I felt forced to act and do something totally unlike me. Nothing illegal. But it bothered me. Especially coming from the strong Disney background that I did.

I made a promise to myself that I won't do that again. The money was nice but it wasn't worth it.

Debbie aka Tory...I applaud you for putting on your big girl pants and coming away from the experience knowing yourself better. Being honest with ourselves leads to growth.

Somewhere along the line, ALL of us have compromised things we held dear but not everyone takes the initiative to see our own part in those things and makes the effort to get back on track. Hugs. ~Nancy

LOL...I try to stay true to myself but you're right, we've all been there.
