THE DARK DAYS IN MY LIFE
It started when I was retrenched from my previous company in July 2009.
My life was turned upside down because I was doing great but my previous company was going thru a major shuffle of management.
Initially it was a welcome break and I was confident of securing a job within a month or two. Days go by and I started to contact my ex-colleagues to enquire about job opportunities and also register with job agencies.
I started to send my resume hoping that I will be shortlisted for an interview. I attended a few interview but the outcome was not as what I expected. I started to have sleepless night thinking what it would be if I really cannot secure a job.
Luckily I have a very supportive wife who encouraged me to never give up and will support whatever decision I make. I have bills to settle and two kids to feed and whatever savings I have seems to be depleted as days goes by.
It was a daily mental torture worrying about my family, my monthly expenses and job opportunities nowhere in sight. Finally after four months I got a job that I initially turned down. It was a big relief even thought the package offer to me was below my expectation but the most important is I got my life back and a peace of mind worrying about my family and my expenses.
This experience had taught me to appreciate my life, my family members especially my dearest wife who is always there to support me. We should be contented with what we have and appreciate life while we can.
Life is full of challenges and we need to face the reality whether we like it or not. We always strive to be the best in whatever we do but at the same time neglect our health.
The moral is it’s important to have a strong and healthy body than to have more wealth that we hope to enjoy in our golden years to come.
