I know I have not written for a while. But I have been so busy and it has been wonderful as it is all positive.
Since completing my Degree in July, I have felt in limbo. I was expecting all the doors to open and they did not. I felt disappointed and low, no relationship in my life and a job, that although I enjoyed, was not going to further my career. On top of this, my Degree was dismissed as irrelevant when I asked to go up a pay grade.
” You have to be here 18 months to 2 years before it is considered. It has to fair for those who do not have Degree’s.’
I was told.
So I went for an internal role and didn’t get it. Instead, someone with less experience who had been 4 months did. No, I do not understand it either, so I decided not to sit about grumbling, but to get off my backside and find someone who did see my value.
I sent out CV’s to agencies to see if my skills, experience and Degree WERE worth anything.
I had email after email back. I was invited to interviews and got each one. I was over the moon.
You see, if you do not feel valued where you are, depression can set in. Self-doubt and feeling unworthy can have a detrimental effect on your wellbeing. If people in work, your relationships, anywhere, do not see your value, then look for people who will.

He is so right as well! OK, we need money to pay the bills and enjoy our lives. But that does not mean we have to punish our selves and feel unworthy. May I add that I love working with my patients, it is the politics in the workplace that was bringing me down.
I also like manifesting and tarot reading. My current one shows that I am going through some form of transformation, turning from feeling frustrated to feeling free.
So if you are feeling trapped, undervalued and disrespected look to those who do love, value and respect you.
