When endings lead to new beginnings

It is often the bad ending whether it be a bad break up or the end of a bad job that lead to the best possible beginnings and new opportunities and possibilities.

I have currently walked away from a toxic job that was perpetuating my depression rather than improving it. I walked away because it was the right thing to do for me. I walk away with my head high rather than downcast. And suddenly a weight is lifted and feels like a step in the right direction. Have you been here? Does this resonate with you somehow?

This employment experience has taught me to choose wisely. I don’t want to be someone who has to move every four years because that is my threshold. I want permanence and certainty in my work life where currently my health brings uncertainty and transient moods. Eventually I hope there will be a positive impact from my work life to my mental wellness.

I am in that space that I am ready to embrace freedom and every new horizon that awaits leaving behind the depression, lack of confidence and everything else that’s been holding me back. I can feel freedom with hands outstretched. Can you?
