When The Going Gets Tough

Work is hard.  And it gets doubly hard when you're working with difficult people.

I need a sense of accomplishment.  I chose this life to attain that.  I even chose a job that is paying above the minimum wage even though I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  I didn't know what I was signing up for.  I even pulled off the interview to get that "item" in a public institution.

That was almost four years ago.

My item would last for four years.  I got this one last year and then, I'll surely again get stumped.

Those three years didn't come so easy.  It entailed a lot of sleepless nights, humiliation by my consultants in front of my juniors to whom I probably lost all respect and sanctions from my senior residents.  I can't believe I am still keeping up with this job and quitting still hasn't occurred to me yet (unlike my batch mate who threatened to quit thrice already and has gone AWOL and then back again).

Despite all the things that should have pushed me away, I am actually thinking of holding my ground, continue doing my work and not minding those who have nothing else better to do but give me hell from 8am to 5pm, seven days a week.  I actually don't care about them.

Keep going.  That is my game plan.

There is no reason to stop. I still have the strength and my sanity.  I don't know about theirs.  I secretly think they are crazy.  

When I think about it, it wasn't too hard.  I honestly think that the uncertainty of the future when my contract is finish is the thing I need to brace for.

Tough?  So what?
