Whether it’s uncertainty about the security of ours jobs, the strength of our relationships or about any other matter uncertainty is insidious.
It’s like a worm that slowly bores into our mind which won’t go away. It causes worry, stress and mental health illness.
A work colleague of mine is concerned about the security of his job. In the past he has suffered from mental health illness and I can see how badly it is affecting him. It is heartbreaking to see.
I have spoken to him and he says if he is let go then he will deal with that and move on but it’s the uncertainty that is hurting him.
There is always uncertainty in life but sometimes any decision, even a bad one, is better than letting the uncertainty continue.
A decision will allow an element of closure and let us move on.
The worm will be removed.
