Separation is like getting fired...

I remember getting fired from at least five jobs.


I left these feeling angry, playing victim and ego bruised.


It took me years to figure it out...๐Ÿ‘‡


It was always the right decision for everyone.


But, when it happened, I made sure they know I wasn't happy.


I made a fuss.


I ranted.


I blamed.


Here's the thing:


I knew these jobs were not working out.


I knew these positions were not right.


I knew I was in the wrong place.


But I hanged on.


For the sake of money, comfort and ego.


WHY?


Things could have been much easier for me, if after being made redundant, I would have just said: "Yes, you're right, this isn't working'.


But instead, something in me was screaming: "Don't let them!"


Something entitled. Something childish. Something egotistic.


In the last corporate position I held, I felt things were not working for me.


I decided to quit.


I felt good, strong and confident.


This was the right thing to do.


The lesson is:


It doesn't matter who broke it off and why.


It was always the right thing for me.


And, yes, I'm talking about my separation.
