A Step Backwards

This week I experienced some disappointment. The case manager that I was going to replace decided to stay. This meant there wasn’t an opening for me as case manager. I’ve been transferred to another job as a Residential Sepcialist which pays less. I was hurt, embarrassed, and disappointed by this occurrence but not deterred from my goal. I came home, cried and decided to accept the new position. My goal is to work my way back to case manager.

Sometimes, life throws us a curveball that knocks us down. Don’t let this keep you down. Stand up, cry (mourn the loss), dust yourself off, and keep moving forward. I refuse to be defeated!

  1. This is so unprofessional of them and I have to wonder if it’s even legal. No wonder you’re upset and disappointed. It seems very unethical based on my professional experience. But your friend is right, hang in there.

    1. I agree, that it wasn’t right what happened but I’m grateful they were able to find me a position instead of letting me go. I’m determined to prove myself and eventually be back as a case manager when a position is open. It wasn’t fair but I’m stronger than what is thrown at me.
