Worker Bee

A lot of things in life result in you gritting your teeth and smiling, especially at work. It’s insanely difficult at the bottom. You worker_bee_by_neko_vi-d6h3mo8have to put up with a lot of condescension because people think that you’re still a baby and need teaching the simplest of things. Some people think that you aren’t capable of many tasks and just keep saying ‘you’ll get there’ as they sit at your desk and rewrite everything that you have done. You need authorisation to do absolutely anything and often find yourself waiting for clearance more than actually doing something.

I’m at the very bottom of the ladder. I’m grateful for the opportunities that I have and I really enjoy both of my jobs, but it’s very frustrating and often demeaning to be at the bottom. I feel like I have a lot of potential and lot of the time I can’t take it anywhere. The handbrake is still on. I know that I have to learn before I earn; I have to understand how both jobs work before I can do anything. It’s difficult and I often find myself struggling and sighing, feel like I’m never going to get anywhere if nobody lets me fly. I suppose I have to grow my wings first.

My plan is to keep going, keep smiling, be the best worker bee that I can possibly be and see what happens. I need to get off the bottom soon, before I go crazy. Hard work and lots of coffee is the way to go…
