It’s been 6 months since I resigned from my position as a financial analyst for one of the top 10 companies in the casino industry. Technically, I haven’t “worked” since April 2012, but that was due to a medical leave of absence. After weeks and months of contemplating, I decided to call it quits in July.
For some strange reason, I thought my staying at home would strengthen my family unit. If nothing else, it would provide me a much needed mental health break. I had truly become the BITCH I’d love to hate.
So much has happened since then.
Sometimes I think my constant presence created more problems than it has solved. I really don’t know. It definitely heightened my awareness. Who knows? Maybe it just forced me to deal with situations. Simply put, I became relevant.
There were problems and issues prior, but I was too busy to address them. I don’t know. I wouldn’t say I ignore them. I was very much aware. I just didn’t acknowledge them. Kind of like the boogie man…unless you believe it’s real – it doesn’t exists. However, there is something to be said about family life 24/7.
You can only bite your tongue. Hold your peace,
Go-along-to-get-along for so long. Someone is bound to break.
The first 6 months were interesting; sometimes a bit too interesting, but that’s life. I’m happy to announce that I’m no longer the bitch I’d love to hate, but I must admit I do suffer from bitch tendencies. I guess it’s true when they say old habits die hard.
