There was a time when I was left on my own at work for 30 days and I need to do the job of others. Our company was facing a financial constraint at that time and there was no hope to hire someone new. Unfortunately, I couldn’t able to resign because I was in my six months as newly hired and the possibility of visa problem might occur for the unfinished contract.
During those days was really hard for me. I felt like I have all the misfortune in life. I was expecting to carry all the duties without mistake, wasn’t allowed to get sick and most of the time I need to pretend that it was just all okay to avoid any problems or whatsoever was playing in my mind. The truth is, I hate it. I wished I could turn back the time and find some better atmosphere to work on.
But when you are in the situation where you can’t escape off or just got no balls to take the risk, you have only two options to choose; to sink or swim.
I chose then to swim because I need to live. In order to live, I must endure. It was a tough job experience, but the lesson was very infectious.
Happy Labor day for all kinds of workers!
