I can’t help but feel extremely nervous about leaving my job at Kmart. I’ve been there for over a year and have become one of the go to people there. I have really enjoyed working with all of my co-workers. They have made working retail fun, when most of the time it should be awful.
I’ve been thinking to myself over the past three weeks, “What if they don’t accept me at my new job?” What if I’m not good enough for them? These questions make me extremely nervous about going into situations and environments that I am not familiar with.
I am also very anxious about starting my new job. I get to work in a whole different environment that I am unfamiliar with. I will be working with older people, which I am sort of excited about. They always have the best stories and since my grandma passed away earlier this year, I have missed hearing those types of stories. I’m hoping that I have made the right choice at this point in my life, and I hope that I am happier now that I am getting out of retail.
Today marks the day that I am leaving Kmart, my first ever employer, and starting a whole new chapter in my life.
