The older I get, the more I realize things change. I have changed so much in the past year alone that I sometimes don’t know if I’m going or coming. Because of that and because of the world we live in, sometimes things don’t work out. If you told me four years ago I would be where I am today, doing what I’m doing, I never would have believed it. But that is the beauty of unpredictability. You can’t predict the future and you can’t change the past.
So when it comes to starting a job, it’s okay if it isn’t what you hoped it would be. It might not be. Maybe you will change paths or learn to make the most of it. Maybe it will teach you valuable life lessons you wouldn’t otherwise have known. It’s good to dream and have a vision, but it’s important to realize that dreams don’t always come true. It’s not always going to be a fairy tale where everything works out in the end.
Sometimes we have to work harder than we anticipate. Sometimes we aren’t cut out for the career we really wanted to be in. Sometimes we have to go another direction. And that’s all okay. We just have to trust that we will end up exactly where we need to be. We are constantly growing and changing, so it’s only natural that our skills and talents also grow and evolve. If not, then what are we doing?
Just because your career didn’t work out, doesn’t mean you are a failure. It’s more of a success because you are learning. You aren’t a bad person because you decided it wasn’t for you. Sometimes you have to walk away when you know something isn’t right because you will regret it more in the future if you let it go on. You can’t hold on to things you don’t need because that will only end up hurting you. The greatest strength comes from knowing when to walk away.
Sometimes changing careers is the best thing for you because it helps you find your true happiness. It isn’t always the easiest decision, but when you know it’s the right thing, you have to follow that. Because most of us deserve to be happy. We work hard and we should be able to enjoy the life we have built for ourselves. Don’t stay at a job or in a career if it isn’t working out for you. There are plenty of other jobs out there.
Always strive to be a better version of yourself. You are allowed to grow. You are allowed to change your mind. You are allowed to live the life you have always dreamed. Don’t settle for something that is not meant to be yours. Give it up and move on. Find what truly makes you happy regardless of what anyone else thinks. You deserve that happiness and a chance to be your best self. Don’t let anyone or anything take that from you. Give yourself the best you can.
