This prompt is one of those that made me feel rather uncomfortable… It made me think of my last job.
I used to think if anyone put their heart into something, they could achieve anything.
I think I was wrong.
Months ago, I took up a new opportunity with hopes to succeed.. It was something different, compared to what I did.
It was in a multi-national company with a good reputation in my industry… it was one of the brand names people would die to work for.
Weeks into the job, I realized it wasn’t what I expected it to be.
“… as long anyone put their heart into something, they can achieve anything…” I told myself.
… lunches were skipped and the extra hours were put in(from 8am to 10pm)…. despite all the effort put in, things did not progress…
(I wasn’t thrilled when I learnt I lost 4 inches in 2 months).
After putting up a fight, I knew I couldn’t breakthrough.. so after much thought, I decided to quit my job.
… quitting a challenge isn’t my nature… and having to accept defeat left me much devastated… my life went downhill since then.
I’m not sure what I should do to recover from that horrible experience… I really want to get better and move on… it has been such a struggle to do so…. it’s tough to stay positive after what has happened..
Sometimes, I just want to hide in a hole and hibernate until the whole world passes on… but I know it’s not going to be possible.
I just want to find a good job and move on with life.
Would I still take risks?
Maybe. I hope I’ll be ready when I see one.
