I have finally done it!
This thing that has been causing me so much stress and anxiety for the past few months is over!
I have finally told my boss about leaving… well, plans of it anyway.
I’ve already told my family about it early this year, though we haven’t really talked about it in detail yet, and I know that there is going to be a hell of a lot of tears when the thought finally sinks in, they are my family and whatever decision I make, i know that they’ll be beside me and behind me 101% of the way… even if it is with a heavy heart.
But my boss, well, he’s a bit more sensitive. I was so afraid that he might fire me when he finds out, and I can’t afford that.
As it turns out though, he was ok with it. He took it with a grain of salt and wished me well, and just asked me that when all the papers are finalized and approved, I tell him early enough to find and train my replacement.
I got so emotional while talking to him that the tears surprised us both. He asked me why I was crying, I told him it was cause I didn’t want to leave and that if I do come back I was hoping he’d still take me back…
But the truth is I was just so relieved… it felt like a huge boulder has been lifted off my shoulders.
As my partner said, everything is falling into place… now all i feel is excitement to be able to start a new life in a whole new country with her and Angel…
