Good Girl

So I think that I may have mentioned previously that I was feeling a bit down last week and was finding it hard to be “motivated”. There was one reason for this and one reason alone, but first … Picture it, Adelaide … 2012…A youngish girl is all excited that she is now volunteering with her local Library, hoping to start her career, not able to see into the future, had no idea for the next three years that she would be completely mucked about with.

Here’s a few things that have happened to me over the years:

  • For over a year they were telling me that they had my resume on file and for over a year they lied to me.
  • Even as a Library student, they let me do a practical for them and they have still not given my a certificate to verify that I participated in the activity, even though it nearly caused me to fail.
  • Since they’ve wasted so much of my time telling me they had my file and they did not. They’ve changed their policies (which is what I found out last week). So even though I have always been on time, I cannot work at the Library now for a least a year and a half.

So my usual happy self has been extremely…well to phrase it correctly…Been pretty pissed off really.

I have definitely been having one of those weeks where I have to question, I do the right thing all the time, and it’s pretty much getting me nowhere.

  1. No one is rewarded for being good. That’s a lie parents tell their kids to get them to behave the way the parents want. Santa Claus doesn’t keep a naughty and nice list. If you notice, people who do completely selfish things (bankers, politicians, corporate CEOs, Wall Street, etc.), these are the people who are the wealthiest people on the planet, or at least much wealthier than the rest of us. They haven’t been rewarded for doing good deeds. In fact, they haven’t been rewarded at all. They simply went out and took what they wanted at the expense of everyone else (and continue to do so).

    And if you’re like me, at some point you started saying, “Okay, forget the dream of being wealthy, can I just get the stinkin’ job at the stinkin’ place that I want to stinkin’ work at?” That’s frustration talking. And if you’re frustrated with life, if you’re banging your head up against the wall, maybe what you need to do is find another way to go. If there’s a place that seems to go out of its way to reject you, then maybe what you need to do is find another place that won’t reject you. You know, like if a guy was constantly rejecting you, you wouldn’t keep asking for his attention; you’d simply move on to another guy you’re interested in and get attention from him.

    So, since you have to wait a year and a half anyway, why not use that time to explore other interests and other options? Time is only wasted when you’re not doing anything with it, or if you’re doing the same thing again and again while expecting different results. Maybe the thing to do now is to stop waiting to be rewarded for your hard work and loyalty and take your hard work and loyalty somewhere else, somewhere it will be appreciated.

    But if you do decide to do that, be good about it, be understanding. Just say, “This isn’t where I belong, and even though it’s frustrating, because I want to be here, there’s somewhere else I should be and I just have to find it.” There’s nothing wrong with realizing that you need to move on now. Growth doesn’t happen with stagnation. By definition, something that grows must change. 🙂

      1. I know the feeling. Trust me. And with a library of my own that refused to hire me for three years straight. But that’s okay, because I found another place that I wanted to work and they just hired me, so… YAY! 🙂

        I hope you have the same sort of luck. 🙂
