Freedom is a scary thingSubmitted by freespeech468 on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 21:42
Freedom is a scary thing. I have been working for a corporation for over 8 years. Dealing in Human Resources is a tough job, providing service for upset participants who are determined to stop at nothing but give you a hard time. It is as if all I had known was that I was earning a fixed Income, receiving benefits, and on the sidelines pushing Liberty to its maximum potential.
Still something did not seem right to me.
I was being told what to do, how to behave, how to talk, when to eat, what to wear. How could I fully understand Liberty while living like a slave this whole time?
I resigned from my position today. (for reasons not specified in this post)
The Idea of quitting was freighting to me. Yet, It was liberating when I had exited to building. Listening to the birds chirp, feeling the spring sunlight against my face. I could not have felt better and I am ready to start my new career.
Case in point at first being Free is a scary thought. Fear is a tool TPTB are very good at implanting in your head. However, when you hold you breath and take the jump into freedom its refreshing.
NOTE- I am not advocating anyone to quit their job by any means... but it feels great when you give your boss the professional finger.
