I think I am swimming among the sharks. I was a shark once. Before I went to work for someone other than myself…I was a shark. I don’t know what I am now. I think I was a scapegoat today. Maybe I had a big target painted on me today and I was a deer. I feel like some people think I’m just a gofer. I was a rhino before all this.
Whatever I am…I know I’m no longer a shark. I guess that makes me a minnow. I’m frustrated is what I am. I am very frustrated. I feel stepped on, put down, useless, under-appreciated, and hurt. Some of that is my own self pity but most of it might be based in some truths. Either way it all leads to the same question: “Am I happy?”
My wife makes me happy. My son makes me happy. I need more time with my family. That is the answer – interpret that as you will but that is the answer.
