When Your Career Causes Heartbreak

You knew in your heart this day would come. But it was still a surprise when he told you he wanted to break-up.

Your voice cracked as you said to him, “I’ve given you my heart, my soul, my everything for all these years.”

He responded, without emotion, “I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment.”

You implored him, “You were my first love, my one and only.”

He replied, “I need some space.”

You questioned him, “Is it something I did, or said? Am I not talented enough? I can change.”

He answered, matter-of-factly, “It’s not you; it’s me.”

You pleaded your case, “I’ll never find another career like you.”

He retorted, “You can do better than me.”

With tears in your eyes, you said, “I’m moving to another career.”

He said, “Can we still be friends?”

You moved on. Sure, it hurt. But you endured. And it turned out to be one of the best decisions you ever made. THE END … is often the beginning in disguise.

This is no pick-up line … if you’re thinking about starting a business, we highly recommend a great new book, The Entrepreneur Equation, by Carol Roth. Carol tells it like it is so you can determine if entrepreneuring is right for you. You owe it to yourself to check it out!
