Job Regrets? Consider the Negatives
I lost my job at age 52 after working 18 years at an R&D company. They moved out of my State and although I was offered a job, I didn't take it. It is 12 years now and I still 'pine' for that job. I made extreme money and saved a lot.
However, I have been thinking about some of the negatives about the job and am more comforted that I no longer work there. In some ways it was a toxic atmosphere. Some of my coworkers were mean and back stabbers. Depending on whom I worked for life was good or bad. I worked for one guy who was a maniac and I never knew from one minute to the next what would pop into his head and I would be dragged somewhere to do work for him. I worked tons of OT and travelled.
The job changed my life in so many positive ways but there were bumps along the way. All I can say is that part of my life is over and is in the past. There is no way to go back in time so we must go forward.
Keep your happy thoughts of your previous job and try to bring that happiness to your new job!
