Or I’d like to propose if it doesn’t fit, gone ahead and take that thang off.
See, no matter how good it looks or how much we might want it to work, if the shoe doesn’t fit squeezing your foot into it won’t do anything but make your feet hurt.
This same philosophy holds true for your career, relationships and just life in general. IF something isn’t working out, take a minute to evaluate the issue and if it turns out you are oval shaped peg trying to fit in a rectangle hole, that’s not going to work so let’s move on and find that oval opening that’s just for you.
I think too many times people get caught up in the surrounding circumstances that cause you to stay somewhere you probably you were never supposed to be in the first place.
For example: you’ve been working in a customer service position for the past 3 years, as a result of your time there, the pay has become pretty decent. The issue: you KNOW you can’t stand people. You can barely stand to hear their voices and if ONE MORE PERSON asks you to repeat yourself you’re liable to clock on EVERYBODY. BUT you’re comfortable in your position, the hours aren’t horrible and you figure: “hey, everybody else hates their job, why should I be any different?”
But my question is: just because everyone around you is unhappy, why do you have to be that way too? I say, if people want to be miserable and stay and swim in their own miserable swamp that’s on them but I will not be a party. The old cliche question holds true, if everybody jumped off a bridge, would you? I think not. JUST DO YOU. Be the trendsetter, do something different and actually be happy in every aspect of your life.
The minute you stop worrying about “what others might say” the happier you’re going to be. Folk are going to “hate” on you regardless, so you might as well be happy while they’re doing it. Find the place that’s right for you, without regard for what others have to say. If the shoe doesn’t fit, take that thang off…because I’m sure there’s a perfect pair just a few paces down that are awaiting your foot like Cinderella’s glass slipper.
