Take This Job and Shove It!
Six little words -- but oh how good it feels when we say them.
Go ahead and shout out
loud right now. TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT!
Ah, doesn't that feel great?
In reality, we're not often in a position to say exactly what we think, right at the moment we want. And naturally if you decide to leave a job it's always better to do so on good terms.
I've had lots of jobs over the years. Some were great and others awful.
There is one thing the hellacious jobs all had in common. When I parted ways with my employers I was immediately relieved at the removal of that karmic burden on my soul.
remember five minutes after leaving problem jobs I would
scream out, Hell Yeah!
A 1000-pound weight had been lifted from my mind.
Leaving a job that is emotionally draining is a healthy step to take.
Life continually presents challenges.
Family responsibilities, financial pressures, fear of making change, we can always come up with rationale for staying with the status quo. Frequently feeling trapped keeps us in our jobs long after their sell-by date.
It's a bit like extricating yourself from an intolerable romantic relationship. Breaking up is hard to do!
That's O.K. As long as you are aware how much the job is chipping away at your quality of life it's in your power to take control.
You may not be able to leave at present, but you can make a conscious choice not to let the job, your boss or whatever the pressure, get the best of you.
Being mindful and aware leads to a healthier and happier existence -- not just in in the job but all aspects of your life. Spend a little time thinking about what brings you joy, calm, happiness, pleasure, and inner-peace.
