Dear Former Employers,
There’s been a lot of you, there’s no doubt about that. Some of you have been kind, some of you have been awful and a lot of you, I didn’t stick around to get to know.
Every single one of you taught me something about myself. My first, you taught me how to work in a busy environment and I’m glad you gave me so much work to do. But in the end, you’re still a condescending person.
One of you taught me to work hard but play hard too. Thank you for the late nights staying up behind the bar celebrating a successful night with all of us. Giving me that job let me spread my wings and fly the nest.
One of you was deceiving. You made me think I was delusional when I told you I was being bullied. But, I learnt to stand up for myself in the process. Ironically, being one of the worst jobs I ever had, I stayed there for seven long, tedious months through the bullying, hard family life and little pay.
My last employment, which lasted three short months taught me the most: I don’t want to work for anyone ever again. I decided to look for freelance gigs and left before I found anything else. After two months I found my full time freelance gig.
Thank you all for teaching me I can do whatever the hell I want and no one is going to stop me, not even you. Vee x
