A change of scenery


Shared on Sun, 01/17/2010 - 00:41

I'm starting a new job in two weeks. I'm leaving my parents company to work for one their competitors doing what i do now. This is a giant leap.

My mother asked me to give them a chance to fix it. She was crying. I had to tell her the last chance they had was thier last chance. I had to explain to her that if we ever wanted a chance at a relationship, I had to do this. What had happened here had a serious impact on our personal lives. If there was any chance at fixing what was really important to me, this was it.

My dad is following his protocol as usual and has not so much as acknowleged that the conversation ever took place. I feel bad because after all the conversations and arguments we've had, he'll still be surpised when I don't show up for work on Feb. 1st.

It seems like everything is turned upside down right now. I'm not sure if I'm doing the right thing or not, but I haven't once gotten the urge to stop what I'm doing.

This is fucked up...I just hope I'm not the one who's fucked up.

You've done the right thing. You are finally showing them that you're an adult, you're not their little kid anymore and cannot be treated like that anymore. You have to mentally and emotionally move on and if they ever mention it, they need to do the same. Just say, family is family and business is business. Don't fall for the old "Come back and work for me and I'll give you the business in x years." It ain't going to happen....

You know the situation better then anyone else. From what you have written before it sounds like you're making the right decision. There is no reason to burn any bridges, hopefully no one else does.
