Keep it simple
I often ignore this profound little statement and end making unforced errors .
Yeah. It's easy to turn a mole hill into a mountain. Been doing that myself of late.
My new boss posed me a question yesterday.
I am the next in line below him seniority wise.
I had the option to tell a lie and avoid drama, or be honest and get into a 1 hour discussion/belittling on why my thinking was flawed.
If I didn't say anything I would have felt like a coward. So as tactically as I could I told him what I really thought.
I am glad I did because living as a coward is dieing 1000 deaths and all, but I don't like the stress.
I am 54 years old and I am not going to make any big moves with this company anyway. The job is too easy and pays too good to quit.
It is hard to walk away from a fight sometimes.
I think I need to recalibrate my coward meter and decide discretion is the better part of valor...or something.
I retired at 60 and to be honest I wasnt applying myself to my work , I hated it and couldn't get along with most . In the last 2 or so years I binged on and off booze and was intolerable . I worked night shift security alone in a building and I slept most of the time which means not doing the job . The commute stressed me to the max too . I had nothing left to give any employer so gave notice and left . Was it the best move I made ? yes and no . Yes because of reasons above and no because I became my own worst enemy with too much time on my hands , its a learning curve this retirement business.
I try try try to keep things simple but I struggle with emotions and other peoples emotions .
I stay in good sobriety though which is more important than all .
PS edited to say there were 300 staff in the building for the first 3 hours till they left the call center at 10pm then it was all mine .
