    Default Moving on

    So, I just finished my contract as substitute teacher at the school I was teaching. However, I can't seems to move on. I still sometimes do come to big events. I in fact will come this saturday for another ceremony. I was actually invited by the other teachers for all this events. So yeah, I kinda feels like I am attached to this school T.T

    How do you actually move on from the workplace you love so much?

    I think the best way is to distance yourself from it. In time you'll become less dependent on its activities, personnel and events.
    I left my ideal job about a year ago, and it was the hardest decision I had to make, and I often found myself there every week, trying to hold onto the banter and enjoyment I had with my fellow colleagues as well as regular members of the public, however this just merely dragged out the process of me learning to deal with the fact that times have changed and I needed to stop grasping onto the past and just take it head on. So I vowed to not go back there for a few months, which actually worked, as in the last 6 months I've only been back there 2 times.

    I suppose the difference with my situation is that I have every intention to go back there eventually, so mine was never a "Goodbye" it was more of a "See you in a bit" - That said, by the time I go back there, it'll basically be a new job as I doubt the same employees would still be there, but either way I think it's best to rip the metaphorical band-aid off, and not drag it out, as you'll just grow more and more attached to your students as well as your fellow teachers and it'll be even harder to say goodbye, but I guess do what feels right.



    I deserve to be alright, I deserve to sleep at night
    I'm my closest friend, I remind myself again
    Better treat him well, cause he's with me till the end

    Try to stick to your vow, and just see how it goes
