Having a rough day that seems to automatically turn into a rough week is a nightmare. Not only does it feel like hell has taken over, but it's a nightmare that you can't awaken from. I know that I've had plenty days that I just want a complete do-over or maybe a skip button. Well, going from being rejected after my 5th interview on Tuesday, to receiving the worst performance review in my career history on Wednesday, just made the week ... weak.
It took me a minute during lunch to gather my thoughts and project my anxiety into a rampage of possible actions and positive reinforcement, but by the time the day was over I was back in a slump. I seriously felt like a failure. How can I possibly be 'losing' at this moment in my life? Why haven't the light shined on me?
Taking full accountability for getting this terrible review, because let's face it, I don't want to be there in the first place. However, they're not supposed to know this. I'm supposed to be more professional and smarter than what has been portrayed. My pity turned to anger, anger turned to pain, and pain turned into passion with a little vengeance.
I must gain passion to take lead in my journey. No, I will not let someone else's perception of me deter me from what's in store. Not only am I going to show them, but I'm going to show myself that I am stronger.
