Thoughts about work

I used to be very driven, I had a partner and we built a company in another country, that company is still in the industry and successful in that country today. I’ve written books and modules for that company I built with that partner but after giving all the resources to him, he discarded me and copyrighted the books I made (which was also on the process of being copyrighted in IPO).

Then after that, I went back to the workforce, I made a mistake of caring too much for the company and my colleagues, I wanted to do a great job and be loyal but I never got anywhere. I helped train people, I wrote training materials and try the new processes, those were successful too.

Eventually, I got sick due to fatigue, lack of rewards and people getting the credit of my hard work. Slowly, it destroyed my motivation. After being hospitalized, I had to quit because I still work even if i was confined in the hospital. My body experienced a shut down. A few days after quitting, they brought in another employee like I was never there before.

Right now, my focus is my health and family. Yes, we can excel at work but never forget that we only have one body, take care of your health. My experiences taught me that no matter how hard you work, once money and power kicked in, you will make enemies. Don’t let your trusting nature break your heart like I did. Go to work, do what is required, go home to your family. Why? Because your family, not your boss, not your company, will be beside you in the hospital or your deathbed when your body fails.

I still carry this fear up until now. I became cautious. I still mingle, have fun and bond with people at work but I placed a barrier by not fully giving out the real me. I still have faith in the goodness in others but cautious. I don’t want to be broken hearted again. – Dana Reclusesoul – 9/2/2019 7:33 AM.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of this.

    I guess we all reach that point where everything we do at work becomes a droll. The initial enthusiasm and drive slowly fades away, especially when new ideas get swamped by company bureaucracy.

    Good thing you managed to break away before it’s too late. Some get stuck in the rut that is a dead-end job for 20, 30, 40 years. Only getting a Rolex wristwatch and severance pay after years of faithful service. Once you go, life goes on and another person takes your place.

    A company sees you as a replaceable cog in the larger machine; to your family, you are an important piece of a larger puzzle.

  2. Hi Monch,

    As I approach near the end of my 30’s I have an actual review of what my life has been and my regrets. At this moment, I am back to the drawing board. Thinking on what really matters to me and what my goals are now that I am slowly…let’s say…spiraling down on the health department. Maybe this is what other people say. We sometimes forget to live when we forgot to really breathe. When you allow false happiness, ones that society dictates as what success looks like that I got stuck in the rat race, keeping up with the Jones that I fully know do not really make me happy because I value my career over my aging parents and my sick siblings, all these changed after my body shut down and when my younger brother nearly died of Pleural effusion that I realized these things. That our Family , no matter what, will always be there for us.
