I was brought into the office of the head of the company and he said, “your contract is up and we won’t be needing you anymore.” I asked. I love reading stories of people who found their passion and let it lead them to true prosperity.
I have been feeling trapped as I need a salary to support my family, yet have no way to find another job as it would be a very public snubbing of the founder and I’ve seen how spiteful and vindictive he can be. I was fired November 9, 2012 – I remember when it happened, the company decided to cut off my computer access before they were even able to get me back there. Make a list of the people you’ve worked with over the past ten years that you are grateful you worked with.
Although i told my manager i was planning to resign for the past few week (which i was) and as soon as i got back to my desk i remembered this post of yours and searched it on your site. I pretty hate my work environment, but it’s hard to walk away from a well-paying job these days. One of the precepts of good performance and a happy life is to have a nice , decent atmosphere at work.
I have several chronic conditions that are expensive to treat, and all of my security just went out the window.
Only add, my wife can only lift 4 pounds hasn’t worked part time in three years, will never be able to work again.
The forst incident was commited when a colleague asked me to check a national insurance number and the individuals name.
I defy anyone to listen to Counting Stars by One Republic and not feel like getting a move on. My boss does bad paper work more often then before and I’m left cleaning after his mess covering up and since I am the administrative assistant I live in fear.
You can write a 30 page book about dieting (“100 ways to Lose 100 pounds”) and put it on sale on Amazon in one day. The Daily Practice has always worked for me when I’ve hit my low points on repeated occasions. Good news is I’ve used the technique and have done at least 569 things to make the world a better place including starting my own business in golf services!


It really feels uplifting to be reading this right now and i am beginning to believe that this might actually be a blessing in disguise for me since i had started hating my job for quite some time now and this probably was the push that i needed.
We can say it’s our second home because we spend so much time there, wasting our precious youthful years from 9 to 5 each and everyday. I have been thinking about the publishing an e-book thing and you just made me believe it will work, so I will do it. The one before the last assigned another guy with no experience in my field as my manager and then, over a six month period, carefully crafted a plan to get rid of me. I checked it and it was humeerous in which i responded back to him acknowledging why he sent me it, however intially i accsesed the record thinking its a business need as email content only stated check the name.
You may want to forgive and forget and move on as it is in you own self interest and not because they deserve it. First one, I was moved to a department I hated so I did not work that much, I was really unhappy, I was thinking about resigning but they fired me. This was the main incident amongest 3 which resulted in gross misconduct and leading to my dismissal. Actually, I have been off since then(May 2011) and it’s been the most fulfilling, lively experience in my life.
I also said fuck you to the man in more ways than one leading up to that fated day a year ago.
I lost weight significantly, learned new ideas about life in the span of my intense dieting and exercising phase, found new friends, opened my eyes about things. I got fired from that one as well, they told me it was a big corporate layoff and it was right, so they told me it was not because I did something wrong.
You need to make a list of all the good qualities that person has and send them an email why you think they are good at what they do. I have a 9 year old and I spent time with him and for once, stopped eating like I had a race in 2 seconds and looking gauntly for always being on the go.
Ive never had any sort of allegations against before and this occasion i was given 3 allegations 2 which were misconduct and the 1 which was gross misconduct. After that, I lived off from parents’ money for 11 months but they said enough is enough so I had to go get another job.


And at four, and at five, and it doesn’t stop when the kids wake up and they don’t know anything is different but I cry then because everything is different. I was told to check with HR about how many leaves i had left and then probably take time off and not come back. I spent the next few months going to interviews at great companies that offered much better paying positions.
All 3 incidents have been commited on seperate occasions by existing staff who worked on the same floor as me and are still enployed. Than, I decided that corporate world is not for me, for now I only have a rental property which pays me almost minimum wage in Canada.
I am looking forward to become a successful freelancer and get back to school to get my PhD degree but I hope I can become a freelancer and work for my own with only three years of corporate experience. I feel suck like I will get stuck in here…I need help this job is killing me I no longer smile. It’s hard to smile at clients at times when I know my boss only cares about the money.
I couldn’t believe how many final round interviews I was invited to, only to lose out to other candidates. None of that brings back your self-esteem which was so randomly stolen from you by faceless bureaucats living on the outskirts of cubicles.
So finding myself somewhere else, feeling the same way just because I keep running from what it is I need to learn.
I know you may want to get fired but you don’t for any reason other than something unexpected. I just feel so riddled with anxiety and fear on making the wrong choice that I’m not making any at all. But all I do these days is fantasize about just quitting (as I described above) or punching my work colleagues in the throat because I just feel so miserable most days and so anything anyone says or does just pisses me off already.
