So I did something crazy two weeks ago...
I packed up my desk, sent my boss an email and walked out the door carrying my desk plant. I haven't looked back since.
Although I miss my co-workers, and I feel bad for leaving them in the way I did, I DO NOT miss the constant stress and worry of having a miserable, unappreciative, and just plan cold boss. My daughter fell down a flight of stairs (long story, for another post) but she couldn't be bothered to ask if she was ok when I came back to work the following day. COLD.
I never realized just how stressed I was until I wasn't. I overslept on my third day at my new job. Slept right through my alarm as it went off inches from my head for forty-five minutes. When I woke up I had exactly 10 minutes to feed the dogs, change and feed Shelby, plus get myself ready and to work. Thank goodness for mothers. My mom came to the house and took care of Shelby while I got myself ready and out the door, getting to work only 2 minutes late.
The moral of the story is if you're not happy, change it. I've been saying for months that I needed to get my resume out there, only haphazardly applying for jobs if I came across them accidentally, but I wasn't REALLY looking. After the tumble down the stairs, and a series of other...unfortunate events at work, I had had it. I started applying on a Thursday, got a call for an interview on Friday, interviewed Saturday morning and walked off work on Tuesday. BYE FELICIA!
Things won't change, unless you take the steps to make the change.
