So it has been about two weeks since I started working.
It is an entry level job. No responsibilities except what I need to deliver. No team to manage. No reports that needs to be done.
All I need to do is clock in on time, do my tasks for the day, have my breaks and lunch, go home.
No problems in terms of making sure that people report to work, not slacking off or getting along with each other.
I keep my head low and my ego non existent.
Some of my friends and family question why I took it. Wasn't it hard to start from the bottom again? Wasn't I underutilized with my talents and skills? Didn't I yearn for more?
Honestly at this point I don't. I don't want the role of a leader. I don't want to have responsibilities. I don't want to be stressed. I want a simple life.
Although it is a major pay cut but I have learned to live within my means of almost nothing. I don't have any vices, maintenance medicines and I have low utility costs as I have been accustomed to living lean.
So when I say my first paycheck, I was happy. This is the start to recovery and for me to normalize my life again.
