Personal Life (Encouragement to All)
JayTawndre posted a topic in GeneralI know that I seem very confident and super happy and joyful, which I am. But I struggle. I have my demons. My past haunts me sometimes. And I struggle with Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks. my personal life is something I could not put into words which is why I'm releasing my docuseries. I prefer to be vocal. I am sharing this with you all. The following information I ask that you please do not judge me by my past and what I am choosing to share. I'm a transparent person. I believe speaking up about personal struggles and matters are important and we act as a community together. This is an official statement I've released on social media to my friends and family whom I've been isolating for the last week. ------------- Time to speak out. I've been very quiet since Thursday and that's because I got some bad news last Thursday. I woke up and went to work, arrived five minutes early to have my boss Dawn call me into her office to tell me that I am being let go because my background check came back with an old felony that happened over 8 years ago. In Nevada they only look 5-7 years they don't really care about anything else (if it's not super serious) beyond that! I was so baffled that they had the audacity to HIRE ME, let me work A WHOLE WEEK for NOTHING! Unbelievable!!! 🤦 Anyways so she told me to bring in my uniform and go to Corporate to pick up my check. I did that and right after I left the Apartments, I prayed to God and in my heart I am going to file a grievance because it is downright discrimination. I did my time for my felony that was the old me. I'm no longer that person and shouldn't be judged by my past. Anyways did I let this disarm me? No. I've been silent on social media because the moment I found out I lost the job I reached out to all of the other places wanting to hire me. Well folks I'm hired at McDonald's making $11 an hour (was only making $9.75 at Siegel) and there are cash bonuses and benefits that I could not believe. I am excited. Also things have changed at the shelter where they are releasing people at 6am again like it was before the pandemic. Luckily the staff is really cool and they have been pardoning me from that. I start McDonald's this weekend. Also I get paid weekly with McDonald's. Another benefit. I wanted to share this with my family and friends to let you know that what the Devil means to do for harm the Lord will turn evil into good and open new doors. I'm forever grateful. I did not let my circumstances control me. I took charge and kept pushing. I am so proud of myself. I've grown a lot. WE as PEOPLE should never let people's past define their future. We all make mistakes. Some worse than others but we should be able to live by our work ethics at the end of the day. I'm a great CSR and I know I do not have to work at McDonald's forever this is just the beginning. I wanted to share this because I'm not afraid to speak up for the underdogs and the "bad guys" that society looks down upon. Something that needs to be said. ------ I just want to encourage anyone who deals with the bullshxt life throws at them that you can always find a way out of the darkness. Don't let the evil win in your life. We are powerful humans. We control our destiny by our actions. Be proud of yourself. Take it from me. We can do this. Life can be beautiful.
