The one thing I must admit here is this. What happened to us was traumatic. No, we didn’t survive an attack, nor a plane crash but our world sure came crumbling down. I never thought of this until much later, but I sure felt that this was PTSD of sorts.
This was also my way of dealing with a loss that I was not prepared to deal with. I despise the company that did this to us. I hated the thought of seeing furniture rolling down the line and the memories it brought back. Working for someone in the same industry was not going to work. I knew everyone and everyone knew me. Like us, they knew it was not our fault. Our suppliers lived the events with us, and it is outlined in my book. John Doe vs Evil is all about that.
This opportunity to work on the other side of the world came and I jumped at it. I had to do something else and as I mentioned earlier, I was not going to dream about it like Walter Mitty. I was going to do this and so this all came about.
Dealing with the trauma was going to go like this… I move and take on a role as COO of MD Pictures. Business is business and the basics are all the same. I was and am a quick learner and a team player. It was going to be about getting a certain job done, bringing people together and problem-solving.
How it was going to all workout and how and what my life was going to be like was secondary. I felt like a fugitive on the run, and this was my safe house. This was to be my escape. I was going to make the best of it. I had never had a problem working with people as a team or working alone.
How I was going to cope with things was going to be up to me. There will be no one holding my hand and as one of my friends said, “I am not sure if I could pull this off.” They were proud of me for taking this chance and this gigantic leap of faith.
