I want to share my testimony of Jesus.
Immediately out of college, I began to volunteer for a nonprofit to get a job that aligned closely with my degree. I volunteered for about a year, and I finally got a position there.
Immediately, when I got there, I began to be abused by my boss and even my coworkers. My boss used me and had me doing her job on top of my own. She lied about me numerous times and lied to everyone that was in my presence for grant money and public appearance.
She would lie about everything and would do anything for money. She even forced me on a plane with her to get more grant money.
Also, my coworkers treated me terribly every single day. They used strong inappropriate language in the workplace, had romantic affairs with other coworkers, and talked about it every single day. The reason I knew about all their dirt was that I shared an office with the loudest person in the whole place.
He would pretend to be everyone's friend; then, when they would walk out, he would talk about them from head to toe. He would gather all the gossip around the entire office and spread more. I couldn't escape him, and I would remain quiet. Also, his friends would try to hit on me and made me feel very uncomfortable in addition to try to set me up to join in on the gossip.
I took many bathroom breaks, and I would pivot every question they would ask me to play dumb.
Nonetheless, the day came where my boss cussed me out on the phone when I put my foot down and said no to her extra duties then confronted her about the lies she had been telling for the last two years.
I was so tired of everything I had endured, and one day she cussed me out. I was in the process of purchasing my first home, so I couldn't quit immediately. But after my mortgage process was closed, I quit.
I didn't have another job, but I couldn't take it anymore. I just couldn't. People thought I was crazy to quit my job after just buying a home, but the abuse from my boss and office was overwhelming.
A few weeks later, I received a random call from a job recruiter for a company where I had never applied. I went to the interview and was hired on the spot.
My new boss was awesome, the job was excellent and comfortable, the entire company was respectful, and my new office mates have become my latest family friends. Jesus sent me a job.
