Has anything in life happened so that you started to look for a new way? may be it has proved to be a better opportunity? I did the same sometime sago. as I was not happy with the job, i started looking for new and then changed to a potential better one. Now in current job there is no salary hike although the time has passed. it is rumor that even if they give it, it will be less. so may be i try for another better one. So is it in case of you also? something bad happened and you started changing it to a better direction?

Yes I have with jobs before. A few times when i felt like things were getting worser where I was working at and I found a better job have left the job that I was unhappy with and went to the new one with more pay and also better hours.

I used to be a very kind-hearted and very innocent and very giving person but I have been manipulated by a lot of people that I started to think that being too kind is not good although religion promote this. Therefore, now i am a little bit more 'evil' and more assertive. Sometimes, it's better to be practical.

i realize this can be an array of different things but to me it was knowing the type of life that I was leading would eventually either kill me, put me in jail or worse have no hope of eternal life. So something or should i say Someone started tugging at the strings of my heart now I realize it was the Holy Spirit. I started feeling REALLY bad and guilty about the things I had done and was doing I knew I HAD to change. I am SO happy now and best of all GUILT FREE!! It really is a bummer when you let your past rule your present and your future. I thank God SO much I don't feel that anymore. If He has forgiven me then I had to learn to forgive myself as well

Maybe there are some of this kind of events. The one that impressed me is what my friend did to me years ago. At that time, he just did wrong to me which I hate very much. After that event, I even doubted my value of life. I just would like to change it so that it might be better for me. Now, it turns out that I didn't change that much as I imagined. It's just quite difficult to change my value of life, isn't it? Anyway, I am aware that those values I believed since long time are good. So it can be a good thing that I don't change so much.

Though i have not find an alternative, the alternative path is that i want to prove to some people in my office that, despite being devoid of promotions..I am more skillful than these guys. ( though less capable persons are promoted because of the " Yes master" jobs they are doing.) Certainly i will break the jinx, in coming times. Have fun subha.

Yes. I got sot tired of going to work and doing my best every day. I never missed days of work or anything like that. I always put my best foot forward. My co-workers wouldn't do much at all and made as much as I did. they liked to walk around and stir up trouble or nose in others business, including mine. They loved to come to me and sprread gossip also. I could not take it anymore. I am glad to work at home now.

Gone are the days when people used to have firm belief (they have every reason to believe it then) that one should hang on to a company and loyalty pays. Now the companies do not want anyone to stay for long. Even the CEOs are changed overnight. Therefore I feel change is essence of life and definitely with the improved skill, one will always get a better salary and better wroking conditions. One should always keep in mind that one should : (1) always update in their jobs (2) have penchant love for adding more and more skills and newer things in profession. This is so, because it is the knowledge that has power and not the mere experience in a particular job.

I thought that when my husband asked me for a divorce that my world was over. Her I was thinking how am I gonna support two kids all by myself on no income. Well my hubby at the time decided he was gonna pick up his new 18 year old girlfriend and move her in with us that was the final straw. I changed the locks when he went to pick her up. I met a wonderful man that is now my hubby and he was my angel he saved me and my family and continues to. So my ex leaving me was a blessing really.
