I have been taking a respite from the corporate world for the past 3 weeks and I have welcomed it with an open heart and mind.
After going through the pile of bull that the corporate world has given me the past couple of months, I comfortably walked away without hesitation and more than anything else, without regret.
Since then, what happened has got me thinking of where would I go next, what my concrete and time-laden plans would be. There are so many things running in my mind right now about it, so many things I want to accomplish and do within the next 2 years. However, until now, they remain to be on the drawing board for reasons I don’t even know.
The past days have been beneficial to me in terms of catching up on sleep, doing the things I haven’t done for the longest time, playing a little bit of catching up on my pended personal paperwork and there’s a whole lot more I could list down since I walked away from the hustle and bustle of a 72- to 84-hour work week . So, was walking away worth it?
There were so many things in my life that happened that prompted me to walk away and never look back. Walking away when I felt like and have very valid reasons for doing so have somehow helped me become the person that I am right now. I read somewhere that “oftentimes, walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth, but because we finally realize our own worth.” And I do believe that yeah, somehow, when I walked away, it was only because I have realized that I’m priceless, that I don’t deserve the crap I’ve been getting. No amount of money nor fame can pay my worth.
I’m in between jobs, I’m bordering on being broke, I have in my hands some recent medical findings that I’m still shocked about, I’m laden with family issues that have been there for years, there are personal issues bugging me at the moment, and I have plans on the drawing board that haven’t moved an inch. Shitty situation? Your guess is as good as mine.
But I’m not walking away this time. It’s not an option for now. Not just yet.
