I worked as a counselor in training and a residential assistant in a drug and alcohol rehab facility for two years. While I worked there I learned so much about people, life, and myself. I loved my job. I loved helping people and feeling important. I decided to quit when a power hungry co worker kept trying take over the place and passive aggressively bully me all the time and accuse me of using all the time when I wasn't. My boss kept turning her head because she " needed him on her side for something else that was going on at the time." I loved working with the clients. Sometimes it was really hard, but so many times I laughed so much I cried. Anyways, it's been four months now..my boss got fired, and the place completely changed. I feel lost now..I finally did get a job at applebees as a hostess..It's been very hard to go from such a rewarding job to something so menial and non important or life changing. I feel horrible..I don't know what to do...there are no other jobs here hiring for that position, and even if there were, everyone working in that field hates each other and probably wouldn't hire me anyways just for the fact. I could go to school again..but i defaulted on my student loans due to my depression and then life just fell apart. Anyways, that' s my story.
