We all have a hard time talking about our job life because it is our livelihood. It is how we make our living in order to support our family and lifestyle. If you are anything like me and followed a profession that was available to you at the time, simply to make ends meet, then keep up the good fight. Especially since most of us in one way or another have to hide who we are in order to present ourselves in a certain professional light.
I was taught from a young age to adapt to societies expectations, and while I did learn a lot of valuable things from that, I find that it makes me feel hollow in a lot of ways. As I have gotten older I have found a wonderful balance between the two lives.
Psychics oftentimes have to hide who they are in order to assimilate into a professional culture. Some may seem to think that this is not that big of a deal and in some ways everyone has to hide a bit of themselves in day-to-day life. To a psychic, living like this robs you of your true self, and can often drain your energy to bare nothings.
If you are lucky enough (and strong enough) to live your life in the open, I applaud your ability to stay true to yourself. I, myself, am still working up to that goal. It is close for me, but this blog was the first step towards that outward lifestyle.
Needless to say, when your job life starts getting bad after all the sacrifices you make to adhere to society’s expectations, you start to wonder why you sacrificed yourself in the first place. Was it all really worth it? In my case, I do know it was worth it, because I did what I did for my child. I would never take that back, BUT I still have those feelings lingering. Did I really need to sacrifice so much of my energy and soul into this? What was done is done, so there is no need to get too hung up on the decisions of the past.
The fact is, I have found myself at a fork in the road – career wise. My decisions, now that I am older and wiser, have much more diversity. I don’t necessarily need to live a double life anymore. That is where I currently stand; trying to weigh my decisions and figure out what I want to do with my life. No pressure or anything! (sarcasm)
Having a situation like this is often a blessing in disguise. Regardless how you found yourself forced into rethinking your career path, it is an opportunity to find a different and maybe even better life path. The connections you make could result in paths you never thought possible. You may discover that it was just what you needed – a firm kick in the ass to force you out of your routine. Change may be hard, but without change nothing good will ever happen.
Good luck to everyone out there going through similar situations.
Go with light and love.
