Blooming somewhere else
Human beings, on the other hand, are much more complex. As you may have noticed, people are quite capable of moving around and making all sorts of decisions that can change their present situation. The problem is that this capability can, on occasion, translate into not doing much in the way of living where you actually are, hence the expression, “Bloom where you are planted.”
But words of wisdom need to be kept in context. For some types of trees simply cannot really flourish where they happen to be planted at the time; if they stay where they are, they will most likely wither and die. I planted thousands of trees in British Columbia over the years to pay for a college education. Returning to visit one plantation several years later, I was disappointed to discover that almost half of the trees had perished.
So keep in mind that you may need to do more to make the best of your present career situation, and you may also need to seriously consider moving on.
