Today was another eye-opening day for me to say the least. I must say that over the years I have learn that I have anger issues. It is kind of hard for me to try and explain, but I hold so much in over the years that I get mad. I do not get mad at anybody else; I get mad at myself for putting up with the crap. There is only so much a person can take before they say something.
This all started at my last couple jobs, I must say people that working with the public, more specifically customer service, people should get some sort of medal of honor. I do not think people understand how it feels to work customer service, and you must deal with all different types of personality and attitudes everyday is hard. It is not easy to put a smile on your face and try to pretend everything is okay just to please some people who do not care what is happening with you. If you do not have something that they want, they get mad and yell at you and you are supposed to take it because the customer is always right.
I never agreed with that I just went along to get along, but years and years of dealing with that and holding everything in is exhausting. It is not fun and to be honest you are not getting paid enough to do it. I think that is sad that minimum wage has been the same for over 10 years, yet almost every year the price of everything stays going up. Rent goes up almost every year, but what you bring home stays the same. That does not make sense, and then you must work 2 or three jobs just to barely make end meets.
They tell you go to school get an education, and then go out and get job, but the thing is you cannot get a job once you get your degree, and not you are stuck doing what you were doing in college, that does not make sense. I know a lot of people that are dealing with that. Trust me I know I have two degrees, and I do not have job what I went to school for, because I do not have the experience and frankly, we really know why. I will not say.
I do not really want to have a conversation about that right now, because there is a lot to say. Just take care of yourself, and practice self-care.
