I finished up the semester at Uni, quit my part time laser job and applied for some full time positions as a Beauty Therapist. I had a couple interviews and landed a cool job pretty quick after which I was excited about.
I took it because I knew it would; challenge me, get me out of my comfort zone and force me to grow in the industry.
Fast forward to last week, when I finally started this new job. The minute I walked in those doors I felt uneasy and uncomfortable. I hated the way they talked to me and I realised, wow I am not about this life. I felt like any duty I did was just to please them. I gave it a week and tried to stick it out but it was bugging me so much that I couldn’t do it for another day. Maybe it was my over privileged upbringing but I just wasn’t made to be someone’s little ‘B’ for another day. I promised myself I’d never get stuck in a job I didn’t like for years only to walk away with nothing but a lesson.
So four days ago, I quit my job!
I managed to convince the company to let me off effective immediately and was payed out for the week I worked. Know your value and don’t ever tolerate anything less. They’ll treat you like you’re replaceable or they will lock you in by a contract which leads them to believe they own you but this idea just doesn’t sit with me. Time to follow my dreams.
