If I am honest I am struggling a little.
My last job role spoilt me. It was minimal work for high praise.
This new role is the opposite of that.
I don’t want to sound like I need constant validation (even though that is the truth) but a little bit of ‘Hey, good job’ would go quite far with me.
I guess everyone is stressed in their first few weeks of a new job. And the fact is I am doing a role that is of high importance, even if I am at the very bottom of the ladder.
I guess I have been pretty blessed with my previous job roles in that although I can get stressed by the least little thing, they have in themselves been the sort of roles where nothing serious can go wrong.
Whereas now I am doing ‘proper’ work.
I expect I will get used to it, and it is just a fixed term contract. I do really like it and have had many moments where I felt like I was where I was supposed to be in life, but I can’t help but feel a bit stressed by it all.
