The grass isn’t always greener on the other side but it can be. I am finding that a bitter pill to swallow. A big bitter jagged pill. I spoke to an old work colleague on the street the other day and whilst talking to him I realised that my previous employer had in fact done me a huge favour and I thought that I should actually thank him because without him working to have me dismissed due to my health I wouldn’t have landed my new job which I am really enjoying. Afterwards I spoke to my mum about how great I was feeling because I had come to the realisation that I should thank him. But she made me quickly realise that he didn’t deserve any thanks at all. Then suddenly all the hurt and painful feelings came flooding back and smacked me in the face with a dose of reality.
