Back To The Start

As I opened up about many times in the past, I started working at a new job in September. After many difficulties, hardships, and struggles, I feel like I finally found my place there. After my department faced a threat of closure, it thankfully dodged it, and we all got back together. See, the people that I work with are the main reason why I decided to stay in my job, which I didn’t intend to do just a couple of months ago. Unfourtanetly, now, we are facing that threat yet again. Before I carry on with this story, I want to add just a short disclaimer. I know there are a lot more serious and important issues in the world at the moment. However, this is my place to reflect and share my experiences with you, and I’d like the opportunity to continue to do so. Now, back to the story.

I thought that this is it; that there will be no more interruptions. I was so excited to carry on with my department with nothing getting in the way. Because, as I mentioned, the people that I work with are the main reasoning behind my choice to stay at my new job. I just hate that just when things seem to be going well, something gets in the way. As you can probably understand from my experience at the beginning of my time at my new job, I have a hard time with new beginnings. I have a hard time finding my place and fitting in. If my department does end up closed, my boss informed me that I would be placed in a new department. That would mean a whole new beginning, starting all over again. And, honestly, I don’t know if I’m ready for it or want it. I hope that I won’t have to face this situation, but as proven here, things don’t always go the way we hope them to.
