upfront or put on a front?

Do I tell everyone exactly what I think or do I keep my mouth shut?

I think the latter is more suitable, cause all hell would break loose if I showed my true colours.

I can admit to being a devious, manipulative glorified tart here, but as for 'reality' I think I;ll stay as I am. It suits my purpose better. For NOW...

I;m gonna walk out of my job very shortly but I gotta time it right or else I have to write off a pretty substancial sum...so, I keep my mouth shut, have the back up plan organised and sit it out til I;M ready. I;m not gonna screw the guy over or anything, just get what I;m owed and go...BUT I will be leaving thinking I;ve failed, because I haven;t completely done what I set out to do, sure I gained experience, SURE I got paid when others are still owed, but I haven;t managed to turn it around and make it work.

To make it worse, I had a guy in today from our compliance backup and he showed me a world of stuff that I could make use of, and he could see EXACTLY the direction I want to head in, he could see it happening for me, but I wonder could he see in my eyes that I was heartbroken, knowing that in a week or so;s time all this would be irrelevant?

I have a course to attend next week relating to my current job and I have to attend a company thing on Thursday, my dilemma is still, do I?

I WANT to go to both, but as I;ve already stated, it;ll all be pointless if I walk...

In my vanity, I thought I could be the one who, where others failed, be the one who turned this guy around, the potential for the business is there, but I can;t get him to focus, and I ALSO need to get paid...He;s in too deep, I can;t rescue him and for this reason I must go...I tried, hell I tried, noone can question my loyalty... but I loved this industry, (saddo)I am damn good at what I do, and he knows it. Now I have to walk away, gather myself together, go work for a guy who has been after me for months and it will be with a heavy heart. Don;t get me wrong, the new guy is great, I;ll get what I want, what I;m owed and he;ll do it my way...

I just HATE failure....

I guess I STILL haven;t made my mind up if I;m coming or going....

whoa... heavy decisions.... hard to advise without more background... but I'm sure you've weighed up all the pros and cons.. and whatever you decide you'll make the best of...
