I have for most of my adult working life worked in a team environment. It was only when i moved back to Victoria that i was taken out of that environment.
It was something i didn’t cope with very well. I had always been surrounded with other co workers. I had always had others to support me or to talk to about solving work place problems.
Working from home i thought would be great, get emailed my rosters doing my own thing, i thought that it would be freedom, but we all know what thought does to us?
Makes us over think.
It was very lonely not having the every day support from other workers, only phone conversations with team leaders that you didn’t really even know what they looked like. I felt isolated and alone.
It made my depression and procrastination worse. I felt like i falling down a dark path again, so i quit my job as a community carer and looked for more full filling position.
Just over a year ago, i finally found a great work place again. I a place where i feel happy and content.
A place that makes me happy to go to work.
Working in a great team environment helps to combat my procrastination, helps to keep me in check and also helps to find my focus.
Working with in a diverse job, with a lot of different people, helps. You never know what you may learn about someone that helps you in your life.
Thanks to all those i have worked with and those i still work with. You are all amazing.
