I’m sitting down having breakfast on my own.
I just realised that the clock has changed in England and instead of 6:50 is actually 5:51 in the morning.
Having some issues at work and, with that, also having shadowy parts of my psyche popping up regularly.
Being an authority isn’t easy and yesterday, when I went to bed at 8pm feeling down, I was thinking about the reasons why I’ve never wanted to do that (be an authority figure in almost 7 years of experience in this industry).
I am a very good worker and pretty good at taking orders from superiors too (even though I have to respect the person in charge first). And I used to enjoy just being that, the excellent part time worker that comes 3 times a week.
In that way, without committing too much, I’ve managed to keep myself free from the inner critic and almost obsessive perfectionism, at least in these kind of odd jobs (the ones that aren’t really my true passion).
But is really hard to do that now.
I just cannot keep myself detached and make a commitment at the same time.
If I decide to do something, I’m doing it wholeheartedly. I put all of me in it. I am a Scorpio rising after all..
Yesterday when I was in bed really early, resting my exhausted legs and feet, it took me at least 3 good hours and a half to stop thinking about work. I was worried about the inconsistent way that we’ve been serving our coffee (we don’t have a barista), then I was worried that I’m getting my period soon and don’t want to be at work because of the pain (I refuse to take pain killers since my Saturn return and my journey of healing and reconnecting with my womb) but we are a tiny team for financial reasons and at the moment is hard to get someone to cover you..
Then I was worrying that I don’t want to commit myself that much, reasoning that I haven’t opened a cafe myself and that my real passion is astrology.
I want to focus my energy in reading and writing, these are one of my best skills and that’s what I most love doing.
And finally I had to calm myself down and remember that I just need to give him a hand for a little (I’m giving 3 months minimum) and save up some cash working full time, and then I will be free again.
I also can’t forget that Pluto is making the final exact square to my Moon for the whole month of November still.
Home life is pretty good, I’m enjoying it enormously. But what seems to be brought up now is the financial and lifelong (so it seems) crisis in my value system.
I’ve had moments in tears last night thinking about the business mentality of efficiency above human well being and how my ego is easily falling into that trap, for I am the manager now, even though I really don’t believe and don’t want to be a part of that system anymore.
And so I just kept quietly repeating to myself “only 3 months, only 3 months, only 3 months”.. until unconsciousness came to rescue me.
I’m the same way; if I’m doing something, I put my whole self into it. I find compartmentalising very effective in helping me get through. As you said, ‘only 3 months’. 🙂
Thank you for that! will keep that as some kind of mantra ♡
