#Reverb 10 Day 5 – Let Go

December 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

 

I let go of a few people and a few things this year. I made choices of who and what to keep.

I quit a job that I had been at for three years because of the unorganization and the people leading the organization itself. I first quit being on executive board because I disagreed with all of their decisions then at the end of the year last year, I notified them I would no longer be working there and I was switching to a different organization.

For me it was the best choice because I was SO unhappy working there, nothing was getting done, everything was unorganized and I didn’t agree with the direction the organization was taking.

I’m also in the process of leaving another organization because I don’t really have time for it and I’m not as passionate about it anymore. People change and things change.

I also let go of a few people this year. I know who my real friends are and I want my real friends who will always support me and not have to compete with me by my side. I’m very lucky to have my close friends and not live a life where I’m lied to about being “best friends” with someone.

Sometimes it is hard to let things go, but I learned a lot this past year about letting things go. I made tough decisions and decisions that I wasn’t sure about because I didn’t know if I would find another job, but I stepped into the unknown and I’m better for it.

  1. There are some things in life that just aren’t worth your time, energy and troubles. I’m just now learning that there are some things and people I just need to walk away from. If a person or organization is constantly bringing you down and making you miserable, they are probably not worth it. As hard as it may be, it’s not worth your time and energy. Life is too short as it is. Like you wrote, sometimes stepping into the unknown is the best thing.

    • This is exactly my line of thinking Jess! Some people and things really aren’t worth our time and energy and I just had to let them go. Life is short and I need to start enjoying it more. Thanks :]

  2. I’m proud of you getting out of an organization you weren’t happy with anymore. Sometimes it is hard to leave somewhere that you become comfortable with the schedule.

    So I praise you for having the courage to do that.
