Finding the Motivation to Move On

 

I've developed the ability to detect misery in people in all of my years in dealing with the general public. I have found that most people's misery or misfortunes are based on their own actions and how they feel about themselves. Me personally I have never been perfect nor will I ever pretend to be but I have this ability that if I'm not happy with something I just find the strength to move on. In 2016 I worked for the national juggernaut AT&T and it was a very belittling experience for me. I thought I was gonna go in and make all this money and just be so successful who knows technology better than me?!!!! Well that wasn't the case and I found myself upset and miserable everyday to the point where I became physically ill. See the managers at AT&T their job is to strictly monitor and coach and to make a long story short there were 4 managers and they all cornered me one day calling me a liar and a thief over not telling a customer about direct tv. It's laughable now but when it happened it was anything but.... I found myself thinking I made a mistake coming to work here. The last stand for me was a customer refusing to shake my hand because I am African American and my managers pouncing on me because they said I had a bad attitude. Clearly racism was involved and that was it for me. It was Wednesday the end of June and I just decided I'm not coming back and I didn't. I've been happier ever since. No money can make or break you down to the point of where you just find yourself miserable. No person should ever make you feel this way either you have to find a way within yourself to stand up for what you believe in and be happy at any costs. I probably left about 50,000 a year on the table at AT&T just to be a happier person. I was a miserable being there and I didn't even cover half of what I went through. You just have to know when enough is enough and never settle for less than your worth. 💯💯💯
