I’ve been working for almost 4 years of traditional day job, office work, travelling back and front from my house to my employer’s office area. It took me 4 hrs of commute. I came to the point that I opted to rent a room near my office, just to save time and transportation expenses. I only got the opportunity see my family during weekends. To see them in just a few days a week breaks my heart. I miss a lot of fun, experiences and conversation with them. I’ve realize what would be the scenario of my future family with this situation I have? My future children would grew up without me by their side? It is the saddest thing for a mother could be.
I have co workers who already have their babies but due to their work, they just bear to work far, arrived at home late feeling so tired, reached their babies asleep, then the next morning waking early not to prepare for their baby but for their work. And worst, they continue complaining about the salary, the environment and their relationship with their immediate supervisors but they are hesitant to take the move because of the fear of being jobless later on. They would tell it to me almost in teary eye and with hurt.
I don’t want to be in that way. I need to make changes. And I don’t believe in the statement that “You have no choice” but rather I believe there are so many choices were just afraid to take chances. Why would I be working like this, if I could still have a career with high paying job at the comfort of my home? The idea of being a VA, I believe, would be the answer to my problem.
