The more I do the less I get


Why is it when I do more I get less? It’s not to say I don’t enjoy my job or do not do my job to the best of my ability but when I try to do more or achieve more I don’t get what I want. I work the best I can and always not only help myself but try to help others as well. But it always seems the ones who do less get more.

I know this post probably sounds bitter but it really is not intended that way. I enjoy my job still. I love helping the people I help because I know when they leave me they have the knowledge that will help them be better at what they do. I know they can do their job and not have to ask again what I explained. But sometimes it really sucks when you try to reach up and grab the next rung and you get slapped down. It is really defeating.

I have to remind myself that no matter what they say and do the best reward (even though a bigger paycheck would be nice) is when my co-workers call in and say: “I’m glad it’s you” or “Finally someone who will help” or ” You’re always so cheerful…I’m glad you answered the phone”. I wish I could do more. I wish I could be where I could help these people more. But I guess for now I have to accept it when my fellow agents call in and appreciate me for my help. I have let it go and do the best I can do where I am even if I am doing more with no reward.
