You didn’t hire me!
I’m not to be hired. I’m to be recognized.
Gratitude is not to be confused with conformity nor resignation. Gratitude is being grateful to the whole experience of being and receiving from life itself.
Certainly you can feel grateful toward your working place, but be aware; some working places have this subtle way to make you feel indebted for being recruited and hired. Don’t fall for that!
What I’m trying to say here is: trust yourself and don’t stay were you don’t feel you belong to. You can always choose where to work or who to work with. The only thing you must take into account is that you must plan your way in and your way out.
