Fear – the Next Step in Your/My Life

I do not know if you are like me.  A steady job, a steady income, a (false)sense of security.  About 5 weeks ago my world was thrown upside down.  One of the folks at my work had deliberately tried to end my career.  He sees it as just business, but I see it as something very different.  My stable, steady world was shattered.

So what did I do?  I did everything to repair the damage he had caused and for the most part I fixed things and re-established my safe and steady world.  The only problem was i realized it could happen again.  So what do I do?  I have my steady job back, but I no longer feel safe.  Worse, I still have to work with this individual whom I clearly can no longer trust.

It means I need to explore options outside of my comfort zone.  Does that terrify me?  Yes.  I may even start my own firm.  5 of my friends have done it and all have been successful.  Comparatively, when they worked at my firm I was better than them at their jobs.  So they all recommend I leave and go independent with or without them.

It terrifies me, but I feel if I do not do it I will never be free.
