I am being overdramatic, and it will just sound so silly and petty to anyone else.
The past couple of months, I've been essentially AWOL from the school, from the P&C. You know why, and so did the president, and my closest friend at the school, as well as a couple of the other execs. For those that don't know, I'm an exec, VP and Fundraising Coordinator.
For the past 3 months, Robyn and Jo (Tuckshop Convenor, my best friend at school, and the secretary) have been handling things for me. I've had no choice but to let them. They've been nothing but supportive.
I offered my resignation a few months ago, but it was unanimously turned down. Noone was having a bar of it. The last P&C meeting of the term is tomorrow night. I know that I have to offer it again, it's not fair on the to be in this limbo.
I spoke to Robyn today about it. It was clear from our conversation that it's been discussed, and plans made to replace me. It is entirely fair and reasonable. More than fair, they need someone to keep this running, it's such an enormous job.
So I know they'll accept my resignation tomorrow. This makes me so sad.
I know it's silly. I know it's petty. But it was important to me. The work I do at Alexander's school is incredibly important to me, my sense of self, my self esteem. It is one of the few things I feel really good about.
And now it's gone.
