FREEDOM AND OFFICE WORK

PREVIOUS / NEXT

LIFESTYLE by KRISS on 13 september 2015

FREEDOM AND OFFICE WORK School prepares you to be a good employee.
I went to school, I was brilliant, but failed miserably along the way.
This system was not made for me and I only started getting good grades again when I started studying at home on my own as a freelance student (I am sure this is not the right term but I've been out of university system a long time now).

Also, office work, or being an employee was not made for me.

I created my own job within a company when I needed one, forced myself into there and made myself dependable.
It worked fine to get me nice earnings after a few years, plenty of "freedom" of action, it was almost as if I were my own boss within this company.
Unfortunately I was not my own boss, and besides the fact that I quickly got bored with the job itself (I lasted 10 years), I felt enslaved every bit of it.
My former boss never understood it.

It was little things like having to ask or even inform that I would be late that day or missing that one or going on holidays.
I would always get a remark as a joke, but a remake anyways.

Then, I only took one week of holidays at a time, kept answering mobile phone and emails while away, weekends.

It was a nightmare.

One day I had enough and things went from bad to worse.

Today strings have been definitely cut with this previous job, life and way of working.
I work more, weekends and holidays but I do it for us, our family, I don't have to explain to anyone why I choose to do something or other.
And I at last feel free.

I make little money compared to what I used to but the word stress has almost disappeared from my vocabulary, I laugh more, I play more.
I have learned to prioritize and my family needs are a big priority.

This is my way of life now out of a system that almost had me losing everything, first and foremost myself.
