A Much Needed Respite

I have been bitching non-stop for the last 6 months about how much I hated the people I worked with, making it extremely difficult for me to continue working with them, haven't I? And as y’all probably know by now, I took the only route available for me to maintain my sanity, whatever is left of it.

Do I regret my decision?

The answer is no. I have no doubt at all that leaving the company and the business that I helped build was the wisest thing to do, considering the circumstances. I know my departure will somehow affect the business but I needed my sanity more than anything else and the only way to keep it is to leave.

But you know what? In retrospect, this is not the first time I left an organization before my time is up. Sometimes, you just have to take the plunge and not be bothered by the circumstances and/or consequences of such an action. After all, when you’re down and out, how many people are actually there for you?

Like the moon, I am always shining even when it's bright; you just don't see it

In my life, I have been down a few times but I was never out. In the process, I also found out the people whom I could count on. The process of eliminating my real friends and those who pretend to be was made much, much easier. And when I got up from the temporary setback, I made sure that I remembered those who stood by me, in ways they could have only dreamt of. Similarly, I also parted ways permanently with those who came flocking back as soon as they saw that I am standing up again.

What I’m trying to say here is that God works in mysterious ways in allowing us to determine who deserves our friendship. And this time around, only a handful people know why I had to leave. I mean, yes I left because I don’t want to be part of a team that doesn’t know where they want to go or what they want. But the reasons are deeper than that. Let us just say that I had to leave to pave way for my comeback ;)

And I will come back. And when I do, I will be stronger and more equip to handle or bypass the stupidity that plagues the team that I recently left.

Sorry but there is no way you can put Ivan Omar down; he will come back to haunt you and make you wish you sided with him all along! Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t vengeful but I don’t forget betrayal either.

Those of you who just got to know me the last few months will agree that I am generally a friendly dude but what you don’t know about me is that once you have crossed me, even just once and even for the most trivial of matters, that’s it for me.

I am no clown even if I am always smiling and at times, crying...

I know I’m being bratty but I seriously don’t give a fuck dude. I am a brat (mostly) and I love being one. And don’t get it twisted; yes I tend to get what I want in life but it is only because I actually work hard to get them.

As I have mentioned in a previous entry, I am a complex character and a walking contradiction. Don’t ever misconstrue my friendliness with gullibility or you will seriously regret it.

I am no God but I too work in many mysterious ways...
