Welcome back to the Cauldron Speaks. Todays topic is looping. You may be asking yourself what in the world is she talking about?
Looping is exactly what it sounds like. When you tend to repeat an event in your lifetime, not past life. This can be the repeat of a situation with different lovers that seems to cause conflict. Or finances, they call it self sabotage but I feel for most people they do not see that they are about to repeat a disastrous situation that put them in a bind in the first place.
Like I said previously I will relate the topic to what happens to me in my everyday life.
About 15 years ago I left a job that I was very good at due to the treatment I was receiving there. Actually, what I allowed to happen there. I was hired for a certain department and in the interview process they mention I would need to learn all departments just incase of coverage being needed.
I worked there for seven years I felt it was time for managerial advancement and I was given the run around. I trained majority of the staff and some hire ups on what was needed on their position. I was given the wrong date to take an exam to move up and I was constantly being sent around different departments for coverage.
Well one day I said this is it. I put my hand on the front door handle and before I step my foot in the door my name was announced on the Public Address System. That particular day I covered four different departments and I found out I missed another test to move up.
The next day I sent my resume out and quit my position within two weeks. Fast forward fifteen years. I have tried to move up in management and was told I need more experience with insurances.
Of course being the intuitive that I am and how people feel comfortable around me to tell me things. I found out that I did not need that to move ahead. that I could be taught that as I go. Does this not sound Familiar?
I tried three times to move up and now I am told I need a bachelor’s degree which I am currently working on. Again finding out that the other people who moved up have not completed there bachelor’s but was offered the position.
I have been floated multiple different places and I am on the verge of a physical break down. Can I say no? I have tried and been guilted and begged to help out. So I cave in and help.
Now should I quit? I am not a quitter, I did that once and I felt horrible. I have decided that I will apply out side of the practice to see if I am offered the higher position with out the bachelor’s degree.
This loop has to end and in that same token I have learned to not wait any longer and accept the made up excuses that is given .
If a business can use you in a certain way and your good at what you do, then they will.
Now I have seen other people stick to their guns and not help out more than necessary and they have been looked over for promotions. Well I know my worth and I see the loop has an opening. I am getting out of it.
Have you been in a loop that you just realize that you have the power to break? Tell me about it. I would love to hear about it.
Until next boil of Cauldon Speaks have a auspicious day.
