Nine Long Years Working

I guess I just want to congratulate myself for working and sticking to my job as an auditor in a private company here in Davao.  For the past years, I had lots of ups and downs in my work... had been under 3 department heads... encountered different personalities (some were easy to get along with and some were just difficult and  hard to comprehend)... met people whom you just can't get along with and made my stay a lot more challenging than before (LOL)... but hey, the good thing was I also found good acquaintances and the nicest of friends that back you up and give you these crazy ideas and later tell you, "forget what I said man, not worth doing"... hehe, I guess everyone just wants to stay long enough in their jobs.

I've learned a lot in my work...  
... people with less or no proper education doesn't mean they are not capable of understanding... In fact sometimes its easier to explain to them and let them understand things than those we think are knowledgeable ones.
... there are just those lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time... who are given the opportunity to work for what they are passionate about... good pay... with the right companions... and almost perfect company.
... politics isn't always only in the government...
... some people love to talk about somebody else and find it comforting to find someone in the hot seat... they'll do everything and anything as long as someone is being talked about.
... you just can't trust someone who talks about someone else and do everything just to get a seat... they can make flames by adding fuel to a spark... and they would even kiss their boss' feet (it should had been a**... hehe) if they are asked to do so.
... people in position almost always win... even people you thought should help you tends to lean towards them and amazingly can swallow and twist their tongues when in front of them.  
So, what keeps me going in my job... it's my family.  Whenever I feel tired or sick of my work, I think about them... a lot... and what I feel and think doesn't really matter anymore.  What matters is  that I give them a good life and I get to spend quality time with them.  They are the most special ones in my life, and their welfare is my utmost concern.

I just frequently pray to Yahweh... first, to praise and thank Him for having a job that supports my family (just thinking of the people who don't have any)... to ask Him to protect me and the people I encounter along the way while driving to work... to give me the needed strength in facing the obstacles along my way... to give me enough courage and wisdom to deal with difficult people... and that I may develop this keen judgment  to keep the righteous things I've learned... and forget the wrong deeds I've seen and experienced, so I may not do the same to others.  Yahweh bless.

  2. Hey, you're not alone. A lot of people go through the same process. At the end of the day, it's always the fittest that survive. And of course, like you said, there's always God to strengthen us during those moments of weakness. You might want to check this post I made a few months back: How To Survive In A Workplace You Hate

  3. suzy... thanks.

    @maricel, thank you... i just hope people would stop comparing themselves to animals and acting like one... that's why Yahweh created us special...
    but hey, that's the reality now, maybe that's the price of our uniqueness, we do things differently...
    come to think of it... these challenges is what our Lord gave us to go on with life... the storms, catastrophes and other uncertainties that made us even stronger and wiser... and the very reason hope and faith exist...
    great post, by the way... i'd read it... Yahweh bless.

  4. While if one follows that course one has to go through the same process more or less.. My life is also not much different to yours... we are of the same class and work for a certain group of people, our work make them earn and they then rule us...

    In simple we are the common man... Struggle is the defination of our life....

  5. With so many without jobs these days--you are in your position for a reason--let Yahweh use you for His purposes--and know He has a plan for you where ever He leads you!!

    Cheers, Jenn

  7. I am also sick and tired with my previous job but my husband didn't like my reasons of low paying job, he said that if I am at work give my best and don't think about the salary, and if outside the work then start to look something else

  13. Always remember, we are working to live and not living to work. Other people get that the other way around making their lives more difficult.
