Today was just not good. I love my job but I am disappointed with my company. After putting in a lot of hard work I expected at least a little help and appreciation in return ,but instead they put me between a rock and a hard place.
It started a while back when they ( the ones at the top) quoted back lines from a rule book when I asked to be transferred to another city so that I could live with my husband. What disappointed me is when I came to know that they have turned a blind eye on the same rules for other people. Why them and not me.Further the people who should help a.k.a. The employee union,have only one line to say ” This is the way things are”. The company had even received a government order two years back regarding changes to be made in transfer policies for women employees. They chose to do nothing about it leaving people like me helpless. I could leave this job and find a new one but getting another job in the same industry isnt easy nor will it help to waste the time I have put in in this company and I really dont want to leave because only the people at the top are bad, its really nice work atmosphere in lower levels.So for the past year I have been travelling back and forth.All I want is to be able to live with the man I love and at the same time have a career I love, thats not much, is it?
I have been gathering information to help my case but it has been hard. After many days of trying and not getting anywhere I just got sort of fed up today.
I went over everything in my head and decided that the problems aren’t that big and there should definitely be some solution.Right now I feel a little hopeful. I don’t want to moan about my problems and make them the focus of my life.I have decided to keep trying a bit more before I give up and that is only if I have to.
I really appreciate comments a fellow blogger made on my previous post. I do have to believe things will get better.
This post too helped change my mood – The Little Maybe…
