A period of Mourning
I only recently reached this stage. This is when you accept that things will never be as they were 'supposed to be,' regardless of how hard you try, how much you beg and plead, and cry, and pray, and wish and hope. Things have changed, the depression is lifting, and you are able to accept life (or the situation) as it is, and move on.
That's exactly what I'm doing. I'm moving on! I accepted a different job before our return contracts were issued and am so excited to be embarking on a new adventure. I'm not sure that my new school will be my "forever school home," but it's a huge step up, an excellent opportunity for me to develop as a professional, and a lot of it's goals are very similar to the very goals I hoped to be able to achieve this past year, but was not able to due to all the roadblocks. This new (to me) school is established, has a great infrastructure, a fantastic and experienced administration, and a friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, helpful staff that has VERY little turnover, which means everybody is successful. I hope and pray it's a great year! Anybody else have grief that they're going through or are able to get past?
