So back in the spring I got caught up in government budget cuts where I live and my job was eliminated (along with over a thousand more). This was pretty much a job I had always wanted and I was understandably upset. I was lucky to be able to bump into another position occupied by someone with less seniority than me. I didn’t really have a choice in doing that. It was a completely different job than the one I had and I was convinced I was going to hate it. It was a working in police dispatch and answering calls to the police. it was a difficult transition but I found my new role fulfilling and worked with some great people. Fast forward many months later and I was recalled into my old job. I accepted as the nights shifts were hard on body and its more money. Today was my first day back and it was so weird. And I’m finding the transition back hard. After a really hard time the job I never wanted became something I was proud to do. It was a place I could belong and that welcomed me after a difficult job loss. I dont regret the decision but I’m finding goodbye really hard. Harder than I thought I would.
