Monday reminders


It’s a new day today and not just any day, it’s Monday. I’m back at work today and I have very mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I’m excited to see colleagues and chat but on the other hand, I know what expects us after we get back into it and it’s nothing short of torture.

I’ve been open about how stressful and toxic my job is a few times. I’m sad to say that hasn’t changed and it probably never will, even after I leave it. As I enter this crucial phase of my leaving process, I feel these reminders will help ground me on the tough days and on the days I feel like I can’t go on. One thing this job has taught me is that I’m stronger than I first believed but, I am also determined to fight for myself more and more with each passing day.

So, knowing I can do this gives me strength. Knowing I don’t have to please everybody gives me freedom. Allowing myself to take the breaks I’ve often denied myself gives me a sense of tranquility and knowing that I am stronger than whatever anyone else says including myself, lifts me up and helps me carry myself through the ending stages of this chapter.

I know I’m at a point where I am confident enough in myself to know what is best for me, in the past few months I’ve built up my strength and confidence in order to be able to take this huge leap of faith and turn my life around. I cannot tell you how much I am waiting for that day when I resign and that day when I finally leave this toxic place, but until then these reminders will keep me going.

I hope you have a great start to the week and if you’re in a situation similar to mine, well, hang in there it’s nearly over and you will start a much more exciting chapter than the one you’re on.
