A Whole New World ...

I feel like I instantly lost 100+ pounds off my shoulders when I walked out of the office for the very last time Friday afternoon. You can't even imagine the relief I felt knowing I will NEVER have to go there or see most of those people again.

When I sent out an e-mail with my new contact information I got a ton of e-mails congratulating me for finally getting out of there. There were so many from former co-workers who had been mistreated and one that really hit home for me. I received this message from a woman who had to sue the firm for disability benefits because she was unable to work and they didn't want to pay her benefits. She wrote:

"Once you have a chance to breathe, I think you'll be happy that you ended the torment. You deserve so much better. I believe things happen for a reason - a higher power steps in - says MB you have suffered enough - time to move on to a new position where you are appreciated."

I am so thankful to the higher power that FINALLY realized I've suffered long enough.

Free at last ....
