Once Upon a Time

 Once upon a time I took a job that I feel in love with. I believed in the company and I created some real friends. Now, the company has changed. They say one thing and do something different. They do not practice what they preach. They cause much hurt and disdame to many people adn yet doesn't want to see it. They pass the buck, they blame everybody else.

 I feel that this job is slowly killing me. It is trying to break me. I have very little spark left. I want to leave for my own good, but, am scared that when I do I will loose my friends. I know if they are truely my friends we do not need a job to stay in touch, but it is still scary.

 I still believe in the basis of the company, but I can't do this anymore. I can't be a robot. I like to say "I have a brain, and I know how to use it."

 I have trying, almost being for a different job, but as many of us know it is very tough times right now. I should be happy I have a good paying job, (I am), but I fully believe one should be happy at a job also. I can do any job because I have to, but I want more. My job makes me cry. I don't want to cry because of my job.

I had the very experience happen to me too. In the beginning I loved what the company did, loved my position and had some great co-workers. Yes, there were some really horrible negatives, but I thought I could endure them and did, though after time it took a very negative effect on me. I wish I had left sooner & own my own terms, than when I did. Keep looking. People are getting hired. It's so much easier to find a new position when you're employed.

The best job is the one you can't wait to get to ... doing a job you don't like is like waiting to be dismissed so you can leave, but it feels like the clock isn't moving ... I feel for you, and hope you find another place you can't wait to get to ...
