Do you know your worth?

Many people say they do, even myself. I thought I knew my worth. The week that has just ended has really put my resilience and patience to the test. Work has been extremely difficult because of a bad apple in the work place and I have reached a point where I've drawn a line in the sand regarding my worth.

I spend my life telling people to make sure they never let their work cause them problems, put them at risk, and to make sure they are compensated fairly for what they do. Some things happened at work and I have realized that I have actually been stuck back in a rut that I swore I would never do again.

How to fix it?

End it. That's what every part of me is wanting to do, go and take another job that I know I can walk into today. Sadly the hours will be longer than the work I'm currently doing, and the conditions are physically gruelling. I don't mind the physical side of it - but I mind the hours. I don't want to spend 14 hours a day at work, then 2 hours a day on the road. It means 16 hours away from home every day so basically I just have time to go shower, eat and sleep, then do it all again. The down side as well is that the employment is short-term contract based. Which means I'm good for the next 3 months, and then after that there's a big gap.

Part of me just wants to say SCREW IT, and continue my oil painting and NFT projects. The other part of me is saying I need to be responsible and that I need to make sure everything is "okay".

I am worth more than this

I know that every day I go to work I add value to the business, I know that without me there, they are going to encounter legal issues and likely end up being shut down. I am utterly done with trying though. I am done with knocking my head in every single day to achieve things that nobody gives a damn about and I'm also done with the way I am treated there. Mental health is such an important part of life and when work begins to disrupt your well being when you're home with your family, there's a huge problem. I have a huge problem.

So what is the actual plan then?

Go to work, do my stuff, ignore the hell out of the nonsense and bide my time until I'm in a position to say goodbye for good. I will also be evaluating my job description to ensure that any tasks I've been doing which are not mine, can now be done by someone else. When a company starts messing around with payments and money due, it's time to start drawing a big ugly line in the sand and pushing back.

There is also an audit upcoming which I will be involved in that is happening in the near future. I am going to subtly ensure that the auditor is well aware of all the issues that are there - then maybe someone will take action when they fail it.

I am going to continue to use my time to ensure that my NFT project is a success and I'm going to get my book published. I made some good progress on it this morning - I tried yesterday but my head was in a bad space and didn't manage to do anything productive. I'm glad to see it taking shape and that I know that when I publish it, it will help people.

I also need to remember that these issues that crop up in life are tiny compared to where I'm going and the plans for the future are going to happen. I need to stop sweating the small stuff and use my time to achieve goals that are bigger than a job that doesn't appreciate me.

My plans for today?

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and I'm going to spend it in the garden with my family in nature, and at peace.

The beautiful part about this day is that I don't have to deal with people or any issues relating to anything other than my home. I get to listen to the birds singing, get some sun on this frozen body and spend some beautiful quality time with Mom and Dad.

Do you know your worth?

Have you been in a situation where work has become impossible? What did you do about it and how did you get out of the situation? If you are still in the situation, how are you coping?

I'd love to hear from you in the comments 🌺

Knowing our worth is a personal thing and it has nothing to do with anyone else. Therefore, I value myself regardless of what others might think of or say to me...

Sometimes we can't leave work because of the reasons like what you have. We have to endure for a longer time to be able to buy the freedom that we want. Patience and persistence will be our friends.

This happens and will make you much stronger after you deal with it.

Yes I do know my worth, and that is what has helped me from being abused or over working myself.
