You want to know how I got these scars?
Awesome Loyal, congratz! Welcome back to slavery
I've been thinking for the past 18 months how hellish it must be to have allergies that cause a cough in these times. I hope they don't make you get tested for every cough separately... unless you get paid and they aren't allowed to fire you for a medical issue but they never let you work, which might not be so bad.
And that is completely true, life is not a videogame where everything depends on you while the rest are NPCs. The "You can achieve everything you want as long as you do your best" has many flaws, for instance it makes you think that the world spins around you as if no one else would also do superb or as if we were made to excel in every single activity.Welp. They let me go. My numbers just werent good enough, even though I was moving as fast as I could and doing the best I could I just couldnt do it and so today was my last day. Hurt a little more than I expected, I think its the knowledge that I tried my hardest but just wasnt good enough thats hurting more than the actual job loss.
Trying to keep this is mind

Jobs that want people to be blazing fast repetitive machines are the worst. I had a couple of those briefly long ago, hated the constant pressure to speed up.
So you're not particularly fast at repetitive tasks. That's really nothing to be ashamed of, it's not like being let go for not being smart enough or because they didn't like your personality or because you did something wrong. Hopefully the experience will help you going forward, one way or another.

Our personal best may vary with time for many reasons like going through a rough time, illnesses (both mental and physical), high/bad self steem, a healthy social circle (or the lack), positive/toxic work environment, etc.. Basicaly stuff that is not completely under your control, i mean you could fix some of those but is not something that would change from day to night so in the meantime...yeah, you pretty much eat it lol.
Obvioulsy if you want something, then commit to it, because chances will be higher. But if you don't achieve it, then first you need to recognise if the reason was something you can improve or it's simply out of your reach.

I hope you can find another job sooner than later. And don't be discouraged/ashamed buddy
I'm sorry to hear that Loyal. But Hoth and F0AM made excellent points. I wish you luck with your other future job endeavors. Hopefully those won't try to mold you into a speed running robot.
