and after being gone almost two years i’m still piecing this together. the main thing was i wanted to make more money and it wasn’t going to happen at “the show”. then i realize that it’s a lot more complicated.
well not complicated just that there are other reasons to add on top of compensation. sometimes i think i was chased out by a variety of people. then again i was around people who had a penchant for complaining and many such people ultimately left before i did. like i’ve stated here once before i outlasted them.
perhaps i grew to realize times were changing around me and i was a relic of an old-time. that is i had my season and it was coming to a close. which is true.
what i realize is that as the sniping or the complaining continued with different people and many may have just wanted me to go away i consider this. all they did was chase me away to something better, if i was truly a target it only backfired. some job such people did.
to get paid more and much happier at a different company. ummmm not necessarily their mistake but not big picture thinking. complaining so that they can score points or whatever goal they had.
i could discuss a friend of mine who became a manager and got sent packing after close to a year. what did him in was a budding relationship with someone who he worked with initially before he became a manager. as they tried to keep their relationship a secret someone put a target on his back. when this happened he wasn’t sure what they were trying to get out of it.
to which i say out of our respective ordeals we both got something out of it. i left on my own for a better job although the job i left for only led me to another job which proved a better fit. in his case well i think he struggled to find his own footing but i’m sure he’ll get there now he can be free to be open about his relationship.
in which case who knows how happy some of the people we work with are with their lives, but i would say we both did much better after leaving. people who have this need to target people will only find other targets. they will never be happy…
