Last week, I started a new job. I started a new journey. A new journey can bring new experiences, new people, new environment. Why is it so difficult to adapt to change? How do you deal with change? I thought I loved change. Change is hard.
There are times when I regret leaving my former job. But I have to remind myself of why I wanted to leave that job. I am trying to stay positive about the change I made. I need to stop doubting myself and my skills and abilities.
With my new job comes more responsibilities. The pay is much more than what I was making before. I am excited about the promotional opportunities within the organization. I didn’t have health insurance with my former job, however with the new job, we decided to sign up for it. The health insurance a little more afffordable and the dental insurance is much less.
I miss my former job. I miss my co-workers the most. I worked with really good people. Not only that, I was comfortable in that job. It was easy. However, there were the downsides to the job. We had co-workers who didn’t really do their job. There were a lot of things that annoyed me about the job.
My new job has a lot of potential. They are all about promoting from within. The management encourage us to go further.
I have been in training since last Monday. There is a lot to learn. Thankfully, they understand we will not memorize everything. They are teaching us how to find the information. We are pretty much learning how to use all of our resources to help our customers.
I only started last week and I am already applying for promotions or positions in other departments.
I am torn about the choice I made to leave my former job. I am torn because I have realized I won’t be able to work on my blog as much anymore. How do you deal with regret? I am trying to think positive and just go with it.
