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!
