I recently caught up with an old friend of mine after a long time. I was happy to see him, but I felt that he wasn’t happy enough. After our chat in a cafe, he opened up and told me the cause for his unhappiness – that he wasn’t finding his current job that interesting and wanted to quit from there (he dreams of becoming a famous magician). He wants to tell his boss about quitting but the problem is that, it was his uncle who got him a job there in the first place (after too much hard work) and he is afraid if that would hurt his uncle’s feelings.
He is an excellent street magician and is very good at it and personally I know that he is able to pay up for his rents (from these earnings), but the problem is he can’t express this to his uncle.
Life is like that sometimes. It will play its tricks against us and make us confused and pathetic. It will worry us a lot and is not fair with us, sometimes. These complications are a result of our actions. Right actions at the right time will help us from falling into such a misery. And the main reason behind this is the ‘lack of expressing our feelings’.
If you don’t feel it right, just quit. If you can’t bear to be a part of something, move on forward confidently without any hesitation. That’s it. Express it – then and there, to the concerned people and let them know that you are uncomfortable to continue further, no hard feelings. Not only in work related issues, by in all general cases. If you are not feeling it right, just tell it out. You are doing a big favour to yourself and to them as well.
Don’t torture yourself by keeping it inside you and pretend to act like you don’t have any problem. That’s really a very bad approach. Don’t do it. So just express how you feel and convince those people who doesn’t understand you.
