I was an admin. assist for many years. Then w/ baby #2 started my own home daycare. I did that for many many yrs. Now I am headed back to work outside the home. I really want to be a realtor, but our community can't support another one so I have decided to work w/ our school dist. so I can have holidays off w/ my kids. The job I chose (and luckily they chose me too lol) is not very high up on the "ladder". I want it this way. I have chosen a new path for employment on purpose! I don't want to work 70 hrs a week. I don't want to fetch coffee. I enjoy working w/ children. I don't want Overtime or opportunities for advancement. I want to be really good at my job and go home when I am done and not think about it further. I have great work ethic, don't get me wrong. But I am ready for someone else to be the boss. For my home to be JUST my home and soft place to fall.
I am so tired of everyone assumign I am not educated b/c of my jobs. I am tired of them askign me why I chose to work at the school I did. Why that position. don't I want more out of life? blah blah blah. UGH!
How do I politely tell them I am notn going to justify my personal career decisions to them? I have tried telling them yes, I have a new job it is such and such and I am so excited to start. Somehow when I try vague and excited it doesn't work. I think it is rude, or I am perceiving it rude or something.
Any advice? I have been judged for years b/c I quit corporate world for dc (yup, lost several friends over that one) and now I am going back to "work" and that bothers them too. How do you tell someone you don't givea crapola if they are happy w/ it or not!
Any advice is appreciated.
