What Would Debbie Do?
A New Employment Opportunity
I was offered a job where my ex works, and it is $6,000.00 more a year at a great company. Should I go for it to better myself and not worry about him?
This is a loaded question, as I don’t really know what your motives are. Are you interested in taking this job to prove something to your ex? Did you break up with him, or the other way around? There are so many unanswered questions for me, that I really can’t advise you one way or the other. I will tell you this, though: If you both are friends, and there are no hard feelings, it would seem as though this would be a good opportunity for you to advance. But if there are any sub-plots remaining-any lingering feelings, resentments, or anger, I’d advise you to seriously ask yourself why you would put yourself in a situation that could prove difficult for either of you.
Ask yourself the tough questions, and be honest with your answers…then, I think you’ll know exactly what to do.
That’s what I would do.
