Starting over after 40! – 5/01/23

Hello, I hope everyone is doing well.

It’s not always easy to start over at a new job. Here I go again! I have said this so many times after accepting offers over and over feels like. I have accepted five offers since 2019. You would think I’m crazy for moving around so much or am the problem employee? Well, both. The employers were not the right fit. I used to blame me for leaving and not giving it another chance, but I wasn’t going to accept any less of what I am worth. After giving so much of myself, my time and effort even late nights and weekends – only earning pretty much nothing in return.

As I got older, I realized that I had over given to these jobs. I was left alone and empty, left drained of everything just to only be given a $1,000 raise for supporting so many people, projects and implementing systems and processes. I began to see I didn’t fit in, and I didn’t have anything left for me. I thought people would like me if I did more and took on more responsibilities. I looked at challenges as opportunities to learn and add value to my evaluation in hopes for a raise or promotion. The result was to hire from outside or pass me up on the promotion.

I knew I had to release this repeat pattern because I accepted jobs in the same industry, but nothing different that pushed me out of my comfort zone. And so, I did. I am out of my comfort zone, but I have confidence in myself to win. I worked on myself that helped me jump start again! All the Best!
