What Do I Carry?

Daily Post Prompt: Carry

I carry the weight of all on my shoulders.  I am the caretaker of my family, friends, and coworkers,  But who carries me?  Mercy tries, but her struggles are real and she doesn’t have the strength.  I need to unload some of the weight from my shoulders and carry myself.

Daily Post Prompt: Confused

I’m confused a lot lately.  Why am I always in a fog?  I need to snap out of it, but I just can’t figure out how.

Daily Post Prompt: Reach

Everything is a reach today.  I can’t catch a breath.  How will I get through this? My self-esteem is gone.

I’ve never been in danger of being fired before not even remotely close to thinking my job is in jeopardy. I have always been the most trusted and reliable employee at every job I’ve ever had. And now I’m just waiting until Monday to find out for sure that I’ve been fired.  It started a few months ago with minor mistakes. I had finally proved that I was human. Then a month ago my boss said I’m making too many mistakes. I buckled down and made the biggest effort in my life to be perfect. Then two weeks ago I made a huge mistake but corrected it before it could effect my boss. She said that was my last chance. This week she was gone and I was given a ton of tasks and the time to turn over a new leaf. The week was going well and I had most of the tasks complete. Then this morning I couldn’t find my work keys. When I was hired I was told that losing keys would get me fired. I retraced my steps. I have never lost keys, let alone work keys. I had to call her and she said she had no words for me and that I was to meet her at the office Monday morning and she would handle everything else from then on. Two hours later she pulled my email access. I’m fired but I have to wait til Monday to be told I’m fired.
