In the past few months, I started a new job, got dumped, and realized that I am stronger and more resilient than I ever thought.
I was with my previous company for almost 5 years, and I learned a lot. It was my first “big girl job” out of college, and although I was more prepared than most, there were still things I needed to experience to understand and grow. When looking for a new career opportunity, I realized that I had so much more knowledge about the kind of work I want to do and the kind of company for which I want to work than I did previously. And my priorities changed. I didn’t need to be at a young company with a crazy cool culture. Right now, I want to move forward in my career. And that took me to my current role.
Two days before I started my new job, and as I was supposed to be leaving for Charleston for a last-minute getaway with my boyfriend, he decided to break up with me. We dated for a year, and I didn’t expect it at all. Ultimately, and for a lot of reasons, it was for the best, but it still straight up sucked.
Between starting a new job and getting dumped, it’s safe to say I was all out of sorts, and I’m still trying to get my new routine straight. But I’m quite settled in my new job, and I’m doing really well! And as for the boys, Jameson is the only man I need right now. I will find someone great, but for now, I have some big personal goals I’m working on. Let’s do this…
