“We have decided that we’ll be terminating your contract.”
Wednesday, 2 weeks ago, 5PM. I was about to leave work when my boss called me into his office and spoke these words. I’ve since repeated those words at least 5 million times in my head.
Unexpectedly, because there was absolutely no valid reason for them firing me. Fortunately, because I had already been looking for a different job for over a month. Circumstances weren’t ideal. This was the nudge I needed to get my shit together and move on to a new life. A better life. With a job I actually loved and left me feeling good about myself, complete. But I never could’ve guessed that merely a week later, I’d find the job I’d always been looking for.
