The answer came quickly in my mind, for a few seconds I was hesitant to say it.. it’s easy to be vulnerable until it hits you right in the face.. but I’ll say it.
I felt like an outsider at my most recent workplace. When you are an outsider, in the beginning you collect by observing and analysing others, their communication vs. reality, by analysing how you are doing things, then you gather new concepts, different ways than what you know and you try to combine and switch between options so you can decide how you want to define the reality so that you can progress, in that environment, if possible or if not, somewhere else. I personally learned to accept what is not meant for me, to choose which battles are yours, what is worth of my energy and most importantly, time, when it’s time to move forward. I learned to trust my real instinct, my logic and my values even more.
