Where is the green grass?

There’s always 2 sides to everything, or more.

For my entire life, whether for myself or being a friend to others, it has been an experience of job/school/program application, interviewing, and waiting. There was always a lot of impatience, anxiety, frustration, and disappointment. Even after receiving an offer and accepting it, there’s the self-doubt after the excitement subsides.

What about the other side?

Recently, I have the unique opportunity to be on the other side of this process. The other side is definitely not necessarily the “advantaged” side as  I or other people may have thought. There’s the waiting for applications, then waiting for the interview, then deciding to take the chance or not on the person, then waiting for them to accept or decline the offer. Same as the application process, there’s the self-doubt process  of whether we chose the right candidate or if things turn out well in this thing I’m so invested in. And then, if the ideal candidate declined, there’s the what if scenario that would play forever. Who would have thought things were so difficult on this side?

The grass is not always greener on the other side.
