I made a healthy decision today.

Today I made a good and healthy decision. I recently accepted a bar job on a Sunday of 2 hours or 5 hours a week depending on the day, I started last week and it went well. I also recently accepted a position at a large supermarket near me that have expanded, the job was 9 hours a week and I thought I could handle it. But I went to induction day yesterday and after I got home last night and after having some time to reflect on the really intense training schedule they had for my position, I was incredibly stressed about it and started crying. Which is a rare occasion because I hardly ever cry, so when I do there is something seriously wrong. I was concerned that I wouldn’t have any time to do any college work or have any free time whatsoever and that my pain levels would suffer for it making college even harder. I felt like I had taken on too much and was going to crash and burn health wise because of it and I can’t risk that when I have got to a good place finally. I was pretty convinced that I really didn’t want to take on the job but I thought I would sleep on it and see how I felt in the morning when I got up to go to the second induction day. I woke up this morning feeling the same, so I spoke to my mum about it and decided to not take the job. I went there this morning just to tell the head personnel woman that I wouldn’t be able to take on the job, I was nervous and thought she would be really pissed off at me, but she wasn’t she was understanding of why I didn’t feel like I could do it.

Afterwards I felt so much better, felt like a load of stress had just been lifted off my shoulders. I made the right decision and I’m happy with the one I made. I’m still keeping the bar job and I worked a 12-5 shift today which went really well, and then I came home and finished my college work for the week. I have Monday’s off of college and because I have got all my work done for next week I’m free to do what I want, which will consist of having a driving lesson and some well earned free time before I start have college for the rest of the week.

I made the best and healthiest decision for myself today and I am quite proud of myself for admitting to myself that I have limitations and can’t do everything.

  1. It is wonderful that you can think these things through and make these healthy decisions. Many people push themselves way too hard and end up very sick. You realized this was the best for you, before it got out of hand. Bravo! Great Job!!
