You know that feeling you get when your alarm wakes you up in the morning and all you can think of is sleep? But then you have no choice but to struggle out of bed every day to get yourself ready for work because it pays the bills and you can’t afford to be broke.
You get to work, you’re expected to do so many things that your brain can’t even phantom half the time but you go ahead anyway. That tired feeling you get when you think of this same repeated process every single day for the rest of the week.
That feeling you get when you go for a break and you wish that was the end of the day but then you rush back to work because called and said the Boss was asking of you. The fear, the panic, the paranoia over why your boss is asking about you. Is he gonna fire you? Is this all gonna be over? Will this make you happy or sad?
You try to push all these thoughts away, try to overcome the anxiety eating you deeply, put on a brave face and walk into that office. Your boss calls your name as he looks up at you, emotionless as usual, your heart is beating three times faster and just when you’re about to lose it. He says “I just spoke to the board of directors, we’ve been seeing your workaround and I personally wasn’t too thrilled about this idea… at first” he takes a long pause, stands up from his seat and walks to lean on his desk.
