I have been hit hard financially this week by a client who owed me money getting away with it – and this despite winning a court case and a CJJ against his company. I found out yesterday and I’m not exaggerating when I say the news has knocked me for six.
Last night I could not stop crying and I could feel a dark cloud closing around me. Today I’ve slept a lot and worried, thought black thoughts about him and against him – and against the law. How can it be that somebody who does something so despicable gets away scot-free? I thought laws were supposed to protect innocent parties from being shafted – in my case I did a lot of work for him and he has just not paid me.
I’m slowly rallying now. I’ve paid a few bills, paid my rent, checked my bank account and I’m still in credit. There’s a fridge full of food, the cupboards are well-stocked and we have a roof over our heads, at least for now. That’s a lot more than many people in the world, in this country even, have and for that I’m thankful.
I’m not going to waste any more time fretting and getting worked up about this man/company and what he has done; life is truly too short to waste even one breath, one second, on such a person.
All that’s left for me to do now is to put the whole awful episode behind me and get on with life, making a living and creating a beautiful future for my daughter and me.
