Find myself after being fired.
By Kathanyu Sawangsri
After being fired, my mind was completely depressed.
Because besides being fired I was chased away from my dream job. Life after that was both depressed and felt that myself worthless. I've looked at myself in the mirror and cursed myself that “you’re just a poor guy” and was crying there, completely lost self-respect.
Through the day and night, I started to heal myself. Suddenly I got the idea that I already had nothing to do, ordination is a better choice.
I never thought that going to ordain will become one of the best decisions in life.
The idea that changed me was a result of being "fired". This event brought me to a different life, both the lifestyle and the results of various things around me that happens.
Before reaching the results, I would like to tell you about the inner conditions that have changed. Which does not change only the surface of the idea, but go deeper into the level of feelings, beliefs, and faiths that are in life.ต
I stopped sticking to the way of life I created.
This matter is very important because earlier I thought that my life had only one way. The most valuable meaning must be like this and ignoring other lifestyles. But when all that collapsed, it made me think about other values of life that are not attached to one thing. I found new values in life.
The ordination made me discover the meaning of making others happy. I still remember the smile and happiness in every morning when my grandmother offered food to me as a monk. I can do any work that I can give an income and be able to take care of the people around me to be happy.
Choose to value yourself in a way that may be more accurate.
In terms of work after I could do anything. It made me discover many new potentials. After crossing the attachment of must be only a “writer". I stopped cursing myself in the mirror and turned myself proudly.
Today we even have many more opportunities, equipment that is ready for us to create new things. Sometimes we may not have to rush to tell ourselves what we should be or can do just one thing.
Of course, I believe in finding myself. But finding “self” today is more complicated than before. In simple terms, in the past day, we may find ourselves with some work that is valuable to the world. But when the world changed the format of the work is different. Many professional careers disappear. A new career arises through a technology that changes the way people live, moving fast and the pace of change is getting faster every day.
Therefore, having someone to stop his meaning with one profession may not always be the right way for everyone. For me, finding myself to have a good life in this society is to find my outstanding "skills" that do well. The one that can be continuously developed endlessly. At the same time, this skill must give us happiness to act and benefit others.
In short, I think "finding self" today is a discovery "skills that give happiness to yourself and others" Many times we may continue our life with only half of the correct skills. There may be another half or the whole new skill that we have not known yet.
Finally, finding yourself may never end. The world and we are constantly changing. Being fired from a dream job made me discover that I do not have to be "writer" or "anything" that I only hope for. There are things that we never expected, hidden under the potential that we may have never met.
Just do the good things in our life both for ourselves and the loved ones around you. Life will lead us to move forward. "The value" of life is diverse and the meaning of life is not just one format. All I learned because of that dismissal and I always appreciate this event.
