I never post this kind of stuff, but I just need to scream at someone right now and my babies are the only ones here, so a virtual scream will have to do.
MH works for a major insurance company, on the corporate side [not an agent]. They don't let you stay at one level of the ladder for too long; they want you to move up every few years or so. My H is at that point, so he recently applied for another position, finance manager. Well he found out yesterday that he didn't get the finance manager job. He REALLY wanted it, and was the only one in the running with any experience whatsoever. His undergrad degree is in finance, he has an MBA, and both management an finance experience. Just found out this morning that some douche who comes into work late every day, smokes weed in his car in the parking lot, sleeps with everyone in the office, and has ZERO qualifications or experience for this job got it, because he did his internship in that office and they know him already. SUCH BULLSHIT!!!! Now I'm dealing with a super depressed and super pissed husband, who just wants to get the fuckk out of there and is considering applying for the same position in MN!!! It pays so much more and that would be awesome, but I am terrified to move that far away! And I am just so pissed that we are even in this position! That guy didn't even want this particular job, he just applies because it was a promotion and a raise. MH actually really wanted the particular position, was SURE he'd get it because he was the only applicate even remotely qualified, and was so excited to do something he actually enjoyed! AAAAARRRRRGGHHHHHHHHGHHH!!!!!!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? ... Your playing small does not serve the world.
We are all meant to shine, as children do. ... It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Marianne Williamson
