I Hate My Job

Sometimes this world of ours seems bent upon taking us down. Little by little, insults and injuries tear away at our defenses. Such things drain us of our energy and feed our self-doubts. Brutality, sorrow, greed, oppression, ignorance and cruelty seem to be everywhere. And even when the attacks aren’t personal, simply bearing witness to such negativity can wear on one’s soul. It’s a good thing we have each other. If we didn’t, we’d surely be lost.

No matter how bad it gets, it’s not nearly as bad when you know you’re not alone.
Brutality loses its ability to bruise when a tender word lingers in your ear.
Sorrow doesn't feel as heavy when held in the loving embrace of a friend.
Greed isn’t as devastating because of the gifts we share.
Oppression shatters to pieces at the sound of our genuine laughter.
Ignorance is overshadowed by wisdom when we see beauty through the eyes of another.
And the barbarism of Cruelty isn’t so frightening when my fingers are laced between yours.

In the end, it’s all about LOVE. If I weren’t loved so well ... if I didn’t love so well ... I’d never find the strength to walk out the door every day.

*Kisses* to you who I love … all of you.

Again. Says so many things we all know and experience. So very well.

How are you not a published writer again?

Not that I'm not grateful as all get out (Did I just channel my Grandma?), but your talent goes beyond just good bloggery. IMO, anyway.

It gets increasingly difficult to find happiness and joy in this life, but making the effort is a reward that cannot be measured.

Thanks for the reminder my HOTT-T chik, I love you as well!

So beautifully, truthfully stated, my dear. Now about that job, what's the exit plan . . .? Is June too soon?

There are days when I feel as if I have no love left to give, and then I'm touched by my children, hugged by my husband, or called by a friend. And it all comes rushing back in. Remembering to love even when you feel as if you can't, that's what gets me through.

And you, my hot friend, you I love as well!

A wonderful blog to come across for the hump day of the week. Something to help carry the rest of the week to the weekend.

Ringing in super late to say how much I like this post. But then again, I love all your posts!

well, I think I am new here, you post where I post kinda thing I think. It is amazing how some jobs are really like that...that there needs to be some sort of inspiration or support to be able to go out and continue to do them.

You are the eternal optimist.

That's people, not the world
