Why is it that when things are not going well and the chosen coping strategy is taking your mind off things (also known as ignoring the situation) and hoping it will get better/go away, the only outcome seems to be things getting worse?
Why can’t things magically get better instead? That would be so much nicer for everyone, don’t you think?
There are fun people
There are nice people
There are good people
A person can be nice and good or good and fun or fun and nice. If you are really lucky, you may even meet someone who is genuinely all three.
But sometimes a fun person is not necessarily a good person. Or even really a nice person.
So my philosophical thought for the day is this: It would be wise to not mistake a fun person for a nice and/or good person.
Be careful who you open your heart and spill your secrets to
Just because someone is an awesome and wonderfully fun person to hang out with does not necessarily mean they will handle you or your feelings with care
Time to start looking for a new job. I would love to find another position within the same company if possible. But it’s time for me to admit I am unhappy, miserable actually, and take the necessary steps to keep myself from going insane. I’m fed up and stressed out and just done. I’m really disappointed after leaving my previous job and thinking I would be so happy here. Even though I do love the people here (last job sucked due to horrible management) I’ve come to realize that I don’t enjoy about 80% of what I do. I very much dislike the ‘corporate’ environment and I absolutely loathe the ‘it must be done RIGHT NOW’ mentality. I also detest the lack of proper training on software and process. How can I possibly rush job everything when I have to muddle and guess my way through?
I also have come to realize that while I hated the environment at my previous job, I quite enjoyed the duties. So now if I can just find something that has duties like my old job and cool people like my current job, I’d have it made.
That or win the lottery.
I do believe it’s high time I cease and desist hanging out with people who make me feel bad about myself. People who make me feel:
Etcetera .. .. ..
I am perfectly capable of feeling all those things just fine on my own, thank you very much, I don’t need any assistance feeling worse about myself from anyone else.
I intend to make a wholehearted effort to start spending lots more time with people who make me feel good, about myself and the world. People who:
Think I’m smart and tell me so
Think I’m funny and laugh at/with me
Think I’m interesting
Enjoy my company
Make me feel comfortable
Make me feel safe
And basically just plain let me know by how they act that they LIKE ME
