I am sure that those of you who read my blog on a daily basis are completely bored with my constant yammering regarding my unexpected career change. However, it bears repeating because my perception is normally twisted. You see, I don’t think I have navigated this surprise change well, but others apparently think I have.
It is interesting how people can look at the same situation and have a different perspective. While I am convinced I have handled it like a unhappy toddler, others have told me how graceful I have walked through it with unwavering certainty. I often think those individuals might be thinking of someone else. And while I hold no animosity to those I directly worked with, there might be an occasional “flipping off” the establishment. I don’t think that is graceful, but I do believe it is a human reaction.
I am not a partial critic, so it is helpful when others can provide a different perception. Those around me are like a flashlight for my darkened path. They aren’t blinded by my confused and twisted thoughts, instead they are a guide to help me have a clearer outlook. My tribe tells me the truth. If I am acting like an ass, I know they would promptly tell me in the most loving, yet honest way. I can’t get very far in life without some special guides to ease the path.
