R.E.S.P.E.C.T

R- Respect. Demand to be Respected. Don’t let people walk all over you because your trying to be nice. There’s a different between being nice and being foolish. If they’ve shown they don’t respect you, move on. Stop trying to explain to disrespectful people how they should be treating you. They know, they are just choosing not to show you the respect you deserve. So moving forward you don’t need that in your circle.

E- Expectations. Stop Expecting people to do and be something they are not. Just because you expect people to treat you well doesn’t mean they will. You expect that someone you care about would apologize when they’ve hurt you, but expectations can set you up for failures. Learn to separate expectations and reality.

S- Standards. Have Standards, and that goes for anyone, any type of relationships. If you don’t want to deal with people who constantly talk behind your back, talk down about you, never wanna help you, don’t build you up, don’t stick up for you when necessary and dont benefit your life in any way, Dont! Its doesnt matter if their family either. They got to go! I’m not saying be mean, I’m saying know your worth.

P- Presentation. If people Present themselves as fake, believe what you seeing. If they’ve show you they ain’t no good, stop having faith in bad people to do right. Actions always speak louder than words. Observe how people present their true selves. Don’t get hurt because you chose to wear blinders.

E- Effort. If you put forth an Effort to call, text and check on others but they don’t do it for you, pay attention. Its doesn’t have to be 50/50 but 90/10 is not acceptable. Stop making an effort to run yourself in the ground trying to worry about people who are not worried about you.

C- Commitment. Stop Committing yourself to those who would not make those same commitments to you. You’ll find yourself always upset and stating how you continue to do for people what they wouldn’t think to do for you in return. That’s letting people borrow money, baby-sitting their children, giving them rides, being a good listener, etc.

T- Time. Stop trying to delay when someone’s Time is up in your life. Everyone is not meant to go into the next chapter with you and thats okay. If they’ve served their purpose in your life, when its time to let them go, let them go.

Sometimes, I really want to quit my job!

Some of you are probably saying “don’t we all”.  So for those who love their jobs/careers this one is not for you but do read anyway.

Six reasons why I want to quit are as follows:

  1. This job doesn’t make me happy. I am grateful to have a job. I just want to wake up everyday and do something that brings me joy instead.
  2. Working full-time takes me away from my kiddos. My youngest 3 are 8, 4, & 5 months. So though I’m here at home with them, I might as well be away in a office.
  3. I was not working for 10 months prior to this job. I was enjoying the stay at home mom lifestyle. Last year when I find out I was pregnant my hubby and I agreed I would stay home during and after the pregnancy for a while. So I feel spoiled now.
  4. I ended up getting a work from home position as a Customer Service Rep. Retail is not my thing. The last time I was in retail I worked for Family Dollar for over a year 7 years ago. Hated it.
  5. My background has to be quite. Trying to keep my kids quite (especially the baby) in their own home is not the easiest. My kids come up to my room all day asking for things or needing my help.
  6. Customer Service is frustrating. Dealing with upset people all day really rubs off on you. Every other customer has a nasty, and I mean nasty attitude. I get screamed at and cursed out more times then I can handle. I work for a large company and the customers make the job Super Stressful. I need a bottle of wine after every shift.

Again, I am happy to have a job. If it wasn’t for this job then I would not have or be able to do the things in my next list. It’s just, while trying to find myself and what would make me happy this job is the first on my list to go. I use to be a Medical Assistant and I’ve been asked “would you go back” and the answer is no! Here’s the thing, I don’t know what I want to do, I just know I don’t want to do this until I retire. My only desire, I’m sure of, is to travel the world. I just can’t do that with no money.

Here’s my list of 5 good reason why I keep my job:

  1. To provide for my family of course.
  2. To save us some money for buying a home, vacations, or rainy days. My husband pays most bills, so I’m able to put my check in the savings account.
  3. I wanted to be able to help my hubby with bills. I wanted to take the load off of him so much.
  4. So I can have money of my own. I love online shopping, and being able to afford my up keep. With that being said, I didn’t want to keep having to ask my husband for the money to do so.
  5. I do enjoy work most days, I’m not the kind of person that can just keep still. I just wish I could have full-time money with part-time hours.

Overall, I’m not really going to quit my job. At least not right now. I just really want to at times. Especially when calls have been back to back with nothing but angry customers who won’t let you get not a word in. I just wish there was something else for me. I’d go into business for myself but I don’t know what that would be or where I would start.
