Sometimes doing something you believe in too much, or have vested too much of your time in, becomes personal. As it becomes personal, you build for it a lot of idealistic expectations. As that idealism bubble is built, you start seeking out external events and people to behave in a way you might behave in their position. Eventually people or external events dont behave as expected and bubbles burst. The pain isnt just a professional misjudge of character but its personal. It hurts deeply, makes you lose faith and belief in the potential of the change you had hoped to be.
If you’re ever been in a situation like this, just reboot. Stop the task, get away from it all, stop thinking…. use your holidays to your fullest.
Happy holidays! See you next year?
