Tuesday, January 10, 2006


I recently resigned from my job. I no longer am 'repesentor of human bile' or 'pondscum' as one person put it.

I do have a few case loads I need to follow through until their next hurdle which I hope will be some time in Feb/March but after that is over I am a free woman. Free of the chains this job has on my mind. So stressful it`s been to have to deal with things,situations I essentially despise, and cannot condone. Although it was never my role to be judge, you had to be in a certain way, to find out the truth in the story with whom you were dealing. They don`t always tell you everything up front. Dealing mostly with adolescents is another thing all together. Generally speaking they are troubled and often because of factors of abuse in their history, makes their affliction towards the unlawful greater.

Of recent, I was not exactly able to adequately defend not so much the adolescents, but others who also came into my case loads. Mind you, I don`t think I was ever aware about having these feelings especially not at the onset of my career. It`s something that kind of grew on me, a type of dissent away from what I had learned and knew it took to play the role I grew to despise. My head will finally be free of the clutches and stresses of this aspect of my life.

I am planning an overseas trip maybe together with my beautiful boy and cannot wait. Although things seem bleak at times and life not worth all the pennies of financial freedom and luxury I have attained and share with him,I am coming to realise that It really means nothing. When you are dragged down by heavy existance and consumed with fear and hatred firstly for your self and extended even to your 'created blood' at the worse of moments what does material do to alter it ? In my crazier moments of delirium I feel quite guilty for blaming them both for existing and me not being able to escape to the other plain where I feel I belong. Although my hands do not not shake, In my quiet mind I am often erratic. When I`m speaking the truth I am overcome with an innate ability to twist words in ways which suit and often get me a desired response.That comes with the experience of my shitty existence and what I have been doing in my career all along. 'You are insane' Troy often tells me, and he is right.

Things are on the upward finally !

    material is fleeting and ephemeral. treasure the immaterial things, such as your relationships with your παῖδες, and perhaps work towards attaining ultimate ἀταραξία (ataraxia: freedom from care, that is, worry) and catharsis. you sound like you deserve a bit of time for yourself and your 'beautiful boy' (υἱός σός?), so do take that, since it seems as if it will be therapeutic. glad to hear things are improving at least slightly. :) 2006 will be a good year I'm sure.

    Nic..thanks for your positivity...It always helps put a smile on my face. Not sure if im completely shining but a load certainly has been lifted. ;-}

    Hey thanks Charles! smiles here :-}

    Greyor, you are dead on right about 'ataraxia'...I am definately suffering from too much on my mind,rarely calm in that way, and although physical excercise helps it doesn`t take away the mental difficulty. I already feel a load has been lifted by resigning from my job. As for all the other things,'eimai avetoimi- hreazetai ora'.

    What was your question in the brackets? I couldn`t make it out completely.

    Thanks for interpreting the post so accurately greyor and for your feedback.

    Take Care.

    huios sos? = "your son?", your "created blood" you speak of a lot, hehe. again, your transliteration baffles me, lol... bloody modern Greek. glad to see you're writing still, i've missed your posts. keep it up dear.

  • At Wednesday, January 11, 2006 10:53:00 PM, Blogger consise10 said…

    Ohh Ok if that`s the case It should be written like this: 'O gios sou'. He and his siter are definately my better sides.
    The part that baffles you says:'I am not ready,time is needed ',and ah ha haaaa at the 'dear' comment.:-}

    You left me a comment, so I came to see who you were.

    You wrote that your children keep you from another level. Can you be more explicit?

  • At Wednesday, January 11, 2006 10:56:00 PM, Blogger Jeanne said…

    I mean, were you speaking of life/death, or something else?

  • At Wednesday, January 11, 2006 11:16:00 PM, Blogger consise10 said…

    Hmm exactly as you said Jeanne.You have understood accurately. I meant that without them I probably would not exist.

    Wow! Ok, so Mr Pibb is a soft drink. You live and learn don`t you.Thanks for clarifying that with the link.The 'dear' comment was not taken that way at all by me greyor...I just found it amusing ! :--)

    I'm so heartened to see you taking your happiness into your hands. Sometimes we do just have to throw it down and walk away don't we?


    Enjoy that trip!

    Brav-O for you. Nice going, and keeping it driving upwards.

    Sara, Its easier said than done.It literally took me just over half a year to come to my decision,and then another three months to write the letter and then carried it for a month or so in my bag before deciding to hand it in. It was all I wanted once apon a time.Now the decision is final,I look forward to other new endeavours... from that perspective, it`s exciting.
    Thanks for dropping by. :-]

    You sound like I did at the end of my corporate career. When I resigned and knew I wasn't ever going back, a huge weight was taken off my soulders. It's been great ever since.

  • At Monday, January 16, 2006 9:40:00 PM, Blogger consise10 said…

    It sure is Fred! I read your 'corporate weenie' post and heard your recording.You sounded so serious and business like.No doubt when its completely over it will be like smelling the flowers right from scratch for the first time. I cannot wait! Thanks for dropping by Fred :-]

    Hello Consise.

    Happy New Year and I'm glad to see that it is off to an awesome beginning!

    I know that the rest of your life and family will now receive 110% of your devotion and you will feel much better and you will be better for them as well too.

    I felt a similar experience in reduction of stress when I walked away from my real estate career. I couldn't tolerate the ungrateful and sometimes downright rude prospective clients and customers that I had to deal with.

    It affected me adversely, put a strain on my family relationships because of the emotional toll it took on me, and wasted so much of my time that would have been better spent with my family.

    Anyways, there's my 2 cents in this positive change for you. I look forward to reading more of your upbeat life changing events that I predict will occur this year called 2006.

    For me, 2006 has also been better so far too. I don't want to say too much yet, because the year just began, but it of course has to do with my mother and the problems with my oldest daughter. There maybe a silver lining after all.

    Bye for now!

    ;--}Thanks to you Lateral Buzz and I mean every word too.

    Colleen. It`s been such a breeze mentally speaking, since the final announcement.Im just sooo glad,and even though it did have it`s perks it was not no longer something I could do and put my whole self into.I began to feel like such a pretender,and it was taking It`s toll on me.

    I never knew you dabbled in the Real Estate world.Laughing at what you said.I read somewhere they are classed up there, as untrustworthy just like Car Salespeople and Lawyers!!! Ha ha ah

    Thank goodness we are out!!

    Good News about your Mum and daughter,I look forward to learning more.Thanks for dropping by Colleen :--)
