Blog: I want to be valued, not viewed as temporary

There comes that time when parting ways with something that brought you new life comes an option. I believe that growth happens in everything we do in our lives, but when something no longer contributes to your growth as a person then maybe it is time to move to something else or give it a gut check warning. 

I personally feel that there is nothing wrong in moving on to bigger and better things because who wants to be miserable or suffer through burnout.

Our worth increases from the things we experience in life whether it be in a relationship, job experience or things we learn through education because there is always the opportunity to educate someone else on things learned, which contributes to others growth as well.

Call me selfish, but I feel there is nothing wrong in looking at things from the standpoint of what will it do for me because if it does nothing for me then I must be viewed as a temporary fill in. I want to be valued, not viewed as temporary.

  1. The eternal reality of where we are in life. Am I valued?

    If it helps, I enjoy conversing with you online! I find your thoughts and perspectives to be of value and interesting.

    I am but one voice in the wild, but I find value in what you offer!

    • I love my blog titled posts because I usually base them off of my inner thoughts at the moment. Allows me just to write freely, too. The urge came mostly because my experience with my employer which I’am leaving because it did not offer what my new employer has to offer. I found a job working in Evanston, and it offers lots of growth. They appreciate my degree, experience, and offer lots of great benefits including a gym membership ; ) I’ll put together another blog feature speaking about it : )

      • One of the issues of the job market today is that employers want loyalty. But they don’t do the things they used to do to earn loyalty.

        Based on that employees don’t feel loyalty (and they shouldn’t) and move on.

        It is a brave new world where things are much different. My grandfather had three jobs his entire life.

        My father had 8 jobs, but the last one was 40 years.

        I have had 14 jobs. Interesting reality!

        • I would easily show loyalty if I was respected. So far, the new job I have is showing it. I will give my take on it next week after I finish my first week. I’am currently on my 6th job(not counting temps). Quite positive that I will have more because my current job is not where I want to retire at or let alone give at least 5 years.
