Betrayal – Turning your backs on others
“Et tu, Brute?” ― William Shakespeare
Have you ever had a job or career you loved? Have you ever loved it so much you would rather quit than tear it apart? Did you leave because of your love for the job or the betrayal around you? The fact is, you may have loved your job so much, you gave up on it because you loved it so much.
Did the job fulfill the needs of others before it filled yours? Did it seem like it gave more love to those undeserving than your own loyalty given unconditionally or was it ripping you off emotionally and leaving you broke for satisfaction and self-worth.
The truth be told, your job may have become as obsessive as a drug addiction. You discovered it controlled you in more than just coming and going to work. It was hiding inside of you like an addiction does even when you are away treating like you it was just “another affair.”
The job turned the others against you and you couldn’t handle that very well. You felt they were talking behind your back and to your best friends and you couldn’t stop it or control it any longer. Maybe it was the lying or the character assassinations that bothered you the most but it’s one thing to be lied to and another to be lied about. That hurts even deeper.
The job was good while it lasted. It was dramatically a big part of your life but now you are done. There is no more sharing or caring about others as you are drained with distrust of others and trust for only a few. You felt you were your own sole provider and taking care of things that others should have helped you with but neither helped nor cared about it any longer.
Holding on to the job was senseless. It gave nothing back even after all those years. It was said to find out that even after all this time you served with honor and integrity, it only gave you back more hurt than ever before. Not once not twice but many times over.
Even your friends are no longer the true and blue they once were. They once liked you as a person but now, they don’t like me at all. Even though you worked harder to help them out over and over, the time has come to let it all go and move on.
