New Job

    hey everyone. So I left the old company behind, the one that wasn't paying me. They still owe me a little bit of money but have them on record and signed documentation that I'll receive payment by the close of this month.

    I have started with a company called Media 24 as a sales rep. I sell for a selection of community newspapers called The Fever. There is no base to work from so it's a lot of cold calling, but that is okay. It's in a field I feel better in and enjoy. I have been here for 5 days and have made a ton of calls. I have my first appointment on Monday - hoping that I get an advert or 2 out of it.

    As for my mental state...I'm doing so much better. Leaving that negative environment has helped, the medication I take has helped, feeling a bit more hopeful about the future. I feel calmer and enjoying taking one day / one step at a time.

    Here's to moving forward.

    I am so glad. I suffer depression also and it is so hard, I could so totally relate to you when you were going through your problems. Being around a negative environment such as a work place or being around people who dislike you and for me that was at the KH and out in field service pioneering put me in such a dark place. You must have people around you and in your life who at the best treat you like a human who has a right to breathe air to go as far to actually like you. I know for me sitting in a car group with other JW's who made it clear that they hated me and then going to a job with people who disliked me because of my religion was what really caused my illness. I am so glad you got out of that job and that toxic environment, no amount of money is worth it.

    I am just so happy for you to be over the deep part of the depression. You seem like such a great person and it broke my heart to read how sad you were I am so glad that things are turing around for you and I am truly sending good thoughts toward you that the new job goes well.

    Well done! I wish you all the best in your new job. From your posts I'd say you have the charming personality required for cold-calling - go get 'em!
